South Street Linen
Linen apparel for women. Ethical, sustainable and small-batch production.
Please meet Lynn Krauss, Mary Ruth Hedstrom and Jane Ryan, three Maine artists and founders of South Street Linen, an American small business located in Portland, Maine.
South Street’s venture into the apparel industry started with a beautiful collection of linen scarves.
The scarves were such a success that it inspired them to design a collection of women’s clothing.
Their commitment to the re-emerging textile community in Maine means they keep their manufacturing local.
South Street Linen considers itself as part of the growing “slow fashion” movement, where quality and enduring design in small batches takes precedence over mass production.
South Street Linen designs clothes they would like for themselves and have discovered a whole world of women that love linen the way they do.
