Why our linens are so comfortable

Our garment washed European quality linen naturally feels supple and soft. And the fabric becomes even softer with every wash!

Flax linen's hollow fiber allows it to breathe, keeping you cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. 

Our high quality flax linen is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial. This makes it a great choice for sensitive skin.

Flax linen absorbs 20% of its own weight without feeling damp, keeping your skin dry and you comfortable throughout the night.

Comfort is a state of mind as well. Our linens are Oeko-Tex 100® Class 1 certified - your guarantee that what you sleep in is free from harmful chemicals.

Certified organic linen

All comfort, no guilt

The only water our European flax needs is provided by rainfall saving 100 billion gallons of water annually over cotton farming - or what New York City uses in 470 years.

The transformation of flax into linen is an entirely mechanical process performed by highly skilled craftsmen using no chemicals. 

Flax is naturally resistant to pests and requires zero pesticide or defoliants and five times less fertilizer than cotton.

Certified European flax is guaranteed to be GMO-free, a commitment signed by all our growers as part of the European Flax Charter.

Every year, the growing of flax in Europe captures 330,000 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Business in a different way

Designed on values

If you believe that good design has the capacity to improve lives, that we should embrace high quality and durable goods rather than disposable ones and that we have an obligation to protect our planet, then we're with you.

We founded The Modern Dane on those very values, instilled in us from growing up in Scandinavia. That is why all our products are made from the highest quality, eco-friendly textiles and artfully designed to help us live more beautifully.

By living those shared values, together we'll make a difference.

Our credo:

Live Beautifully

We live beautifully when we surround ourselves with the honest, the elegant, the well-crafted.

When we invite nature in. When we respect our raw materials. When we choose durable over disposable. 

When we strip away noise and find the essence. When we tread carefully and consume responsibly. 

When we pause to experience the moment.
