What is Ethically Handmade?

Here at Linen Duet, we pride ourselves on being an ethical brand. You may be wondering what that means, and why it matters that the items we sell are ethically handmade right here in the U.S.

Ethical products are those that are made under safe, quality conditions by artisans who are paid fair wages for their work. All of the products that we sell in our shop are individually handmade by skilled labor. We pay our small team of makers fairly and of course, treat them well because we respect their skills and dedication to their craft.

As a small business focused on creating beautiful, durable goods, it’s important to us that the items we offer our customers are not mass produced using cheap, unskilled labor. This speaks to both the quality of our products and the care that we have for our fellow makers and our brand.

Supporting ethical brands can be a reflection of your personal values. If you’re a consumer who cares about how your home goods and clothing are made, choosing ethically handmade items is something you can feel positive about. Not only do you get an individually made item just for you, but you also get the peace of mind in knowing that it was crafted with care and compassion.

Unlike mass made products that you can find on any large retailer’s shelves, handmade items are unique. That human element is what sets it apart and makes it that much more special and beautiful. Time, thought, and dedication are put into the creation of each handmade item.

Why Shop Ethical Clothing?

Cheap clothing is readily available at low prices today, but in most cases, the quality is lacking and the items have likely been made in poor conditions. By choosing ethical clothing, you can feel good about purchasing high-quality handmade pieces that will last for many years to come.

Our handmade clothing is ethically produced by seamstresses who are compensated fairly and work in safe, sanitary conditions. When you buy clothing and bedding from our shop, you can have confidence that your item is carefully and thoughtfully made with attention to quality and detail.


Our products are made with high-quality linen fabrics. We love working with linen material because it’s beautiful, sustainable, and durable. From our linen bedding to scarves to tablecloths, each item is designed and handmade by our team using soft, eco-friendly material.

Linen fabric itself is an ethical product because of its sustainability. Made from the fibers of flax plants, linen is sturdy and versatile. Every part of flax plants can be used in the creation of something useful, and it requires far less water than cotton does to grow. Linen’s many green properties make it an ideal fabric for use in a variety of home products and garments.

When you shop with us and purchase our handcrafted items, you’re supporting a small local business. Please know that each item is thoughtfully made with care. We’re a small operation but we bring our dedication and passion to all of our products, from handmade bedding to linen clothing, tablecloths, and more. The support of our customers is what allows us to continue to offer the highest quality ethical homeware.
