The Linen Closet
is a charming, indispensable book about a nearly forgotten domestic art. Whether the reader is a first-time owner of vintage or contemporary linens or lace or a seasoned collector, it will serve as a complete guide of caring for and preserving these beautifully handcrafted treasures.
While imparting valuable information, author Michele Clise evokes nostalgic images from a time when linens were a part of everyday life, making The Linen Closet a comforting as well as useful gift.
Ms. Clise created the renowned Bazaar des Bears gift shop in Seattle and owned it for ten years. It was widely known for its contemporary and vintage linens as well as its unusual Victoriana. She designed a line of handmade linens currently being sold in the United States, England, and Japan.
