Hale means to be strong and robust. Whilst it is used in conjunction with a persons state of health we thought it was the perfect word to associate with our linens. Linen is strong and natural. It is a wonderful textile to use on the body and in the home to advocate a sense of good natural living that just happens to be loaded with aesthetic and tactile charm. Mercantile obviously refers to business and our business is to trade beautiful linens and associated products for everyday living. And we love it!!

All of our linens are made in Europe. Flax is the primary product from which linen is made and ours is sourced from France. The manufacturing process from yarn spinning and dying to weaving and sewing all takes place in Europe.

Although we use French flax to make our yarns, flax is not linen. It is the primary source of linen but is cultivated for many other uses. Our actual yarn is not only made from French flax it is spun and dyed by master European craftsmen to ensure textural quality, durability and colour integrity of our woven products. Our linen is designed to be completely easy care. Each piece is prewashed and shrunk to ensure, that with proper care, a simple wash and tumble dry is all that is needed. Our linens are best worn with a relaxed, natural appeal.

Yes, stay tuned. We have lots of new colours and products on the horizon. More luxury pure linen bedding and lots more to come. Please refer to the colour guide in our products for further details on the HMCo colour palette.


Yes. We recommend tumble drying on a low-medium heat to maintain the linens shape and soft textural appeal.

If the proper care instructions are followed, our linens will not shrink.

Yes, you can iron your linen. We do not recommend it though. HMCo linen has been designed to be relaxed and textured in appearance.

Please refer to the throw care instructions. If you have any concerns about minor lint this will be eliminated through the washing and drying process recommended. Any minor shedding will disappear after the first couple of washes.

We recommend using a mild liquid detergent such as wool mix.
