Linen woven in Ireland and certified by with Irish Linen Guild is among the finest and best in the world, in large part due to the softness of Irish stream and river water (also responsible for the best and smoothest Guinness).

It is believed flax was grown in Ireland as early as 1,000 BC, it was certainly woven in the middle ages; the trade grew in the 18th 19thC, helped in part by the influx of textile savvy immigrant Huguenots, until almost every village and town had their own mill or production area. Today, the Irish linen industry remains a hallmark of quality and bespoke fabrics.
