As our name in­di­cates mono­gram­ming and em­broi­dery are our spe­cialty. By adding a mono­gram to your linens, you in­stantly give them a very per­sonal touch, which will give a quiet re­fine­ment to the feel of your room, bath­room or din­ing room. Your gifts once mono­grammed will be per­ceived as a much more thought­ful ges­ture and will mean a lot more to all the lucky re­cip­i­ents! Think of all your wed­ding and an­niver­sary presents! We of­fer both hand and ma­chine em­broi­dery. We have a col­lec­tion of mono­grams which are ma­chine em­broi­dered and are very rea­son­ably priced. We also have a de­sign team, which can cre­ate mono­grams for you ac­cord­ing to your taste and needs. We can also de­sign em­broi­deries to match the style of your rooms. Th­ese can be sewn by ma­chine or by hand. We choose the colours of the threads ac­cord­ing to the em­broi­dery colour of the items. For plain linens, choose one of our many colours of­fered. For spe­cific colours, email or call us for more in­for­ma­tion. Mono­grammed Linen Shop was cre­ated nearly 30 years ago by Anne Singer when she moved to Lon­don from Paris, where she stud­ied at the “In­sti­tut Na­tional des Arts Dec­o­rat­ifs”. She says : My train­ing was pri­mar­ily that of a draughts­man and colourist, yet I was al­ways drawn to the beauty and tech­ni­cal pro­fi­ciency re­quired to pro­duce fine em­broi­dery. MLS al­lowed me to com­bine my pas­sions with my skills. In France there has al­ways been a tra­di­tion for ac­cu­mu­lat­ing beau­ti­ful linens. My up­bring­ing was no ex­cep­tion. My grand­mother’s favourite pas­time was to em­broi­der her own ta­ble-linen. She would never be seen with­out her colour­ful threads and del­i­cate nee­dles. This is prob­a­bly why I be­came fas­ci­nated by em­broi­dery and fine linens. In set­ting up MLS, I also re­al­ized that if one is to pro­duce the most ex­quis­ite em­broi­deries, one must first seek out the best pos­si­ble sup­port on which to em­broi­der. Choos­ing the right fab­ric for man­u­fac­tur­ing bed linen is cru­cial. Threads and ma­te­ri­als used for bed­ding must be del­i­cate, yet strong. Con­sider how much time we spend in bed. The av­er­age per­son may spend as much as 25 years in his life­time be­tween the sheets. It is for this sim­ple rea­son that choos­ing the right bed linen is vi­tally im­por­tant! I am re­ally proud to have joined forces with the fa­mous French brand Yves Delorme whose ex­per­tise in bed linens and other house­hold linens stems from the mid­dle of the 19th cen­tury. We are now of­fer­ing their ex­ten­sive range of lux­u­ri­ous linens online and in our store. Visit the Mono­grammed Linen Shop at: 168-170 Wal­ton Street, Lon­don SW3 2JL. Our open­ing hours are Mon­day - Satur­day 10:00 -18:00
