​​Libeco™-sourced Belgian Linen™​ 

​​Four Hands is consistently dedicated to bringing forth upholstered pieces that are made to last, so the brand is honored to launch new products made with Belgian Linen™, including a wool blend rich in character and depth. By using a traditional approach to growing and harvesting flax, Libeco™’s authentic linen-making process results in superior fabric that’s softer to the touch, less prone to wrinkling, naturally durable, and easy to maintain. ​ 

​​Much like the Four Hands brand, the multi-generational artisans of Libeco are committed to sustainable manufacturing. The OEKO-TEX® certified material in these linen pieces and sustainable slipcovers is manufactured in facilities that are carbon neutral, completely solar and wind powered, and contain no toxic chemicals within the process. ​ 

“We couldn't be more pleased with how positively the home and design community has responded to our ongoing sustainability efforts,” says Lovegrove. “This partnership with Libeco resonates so well with our brand and our buyers alike, and we’re honored to be a part of the movement towards manufacturing responsible furnishings.”
