Hawkins Farm, Port Elgin ON

Family Farm

Always inspired by the sustainable lifestyle and traditions of my mother and grandmother, a time when you grew what you ate, crafted basic necessities and traded with neighbours.

Natural linen and cotton goods played an integral role in running a busy home.  Hard wearing, quick drying and bacteria resistant, linen is ideal for tea towels, aprons, bread storage and table linens.

These textiles were also hard at work as laundry, shoe and clothing bags as well as hand and bath towels...often repurposed from flour and sugar sacks.

Linen and cotton continues to meet the challenges of daily life. Whether making them yourself or purchasing them from a small business like mine, these items inspire an earth friendly lifestyle that brings a bit of joy to daily chores and a connection to simpler times.
