Our History

Our history

The Linen Press was established in 1994 by Joan and Susy Kennedy and is a Melbourne based company. Their products are designed in conjunction with local artists.

The Linen Press started by designing and sourcing hand embroidery in Vietnam and after these products became unavailable, the company began importing textiles from producers in India that are ethically sourced and organically certified. Joan’s personal love of textiles and native flora and fauna saw the development of textile ranges featuring all manner of Australian plants and animals.

These designs included; aprons, tea towels, pot holders, mitts, tote bags, purses and pouches. From these ranges the company have expanded into new equally successful products – toiletries, stationery, paper products and fine bone china cups.

The Linen Press has certification with Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and is a Climate Friendly Business.
