The right care

You needn’t worry too much about the correct care of linen products. As long as you follow a few simple tips, you will continue to enjoy our products for a long time. Do not overfill the drum, and do not use water-saving programmes. Although we recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C, our products can also be washed at 60 °C without any problem. It is best to use mild liquid detergent without fabric brighteners or softeners, and at low spin speeds. Linen is best ironed while it is still damp.

Our tips

  • Half-linen loves to be washed
  • We recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C or 60 °C
  • Please do not use fabric brighteners or softeners
  • Water-saving programmes are harmful to products made of natural fibres
  • Suitable for tumble dryers

Messina - 1600

A Leitner Leinen classic makes a comeback. The fine piqué of half-linen is embellished with playful jacquard edging to bring a southerly panache to the home. With the many columns and arches echoing Ancient Greece, the fabric is literally enjoying a Renaissance. Messina is available as a guest towel, hand towel or shower towel.
