...And which linen items you need in your suitcase on your summer vacay!
All the fun of summer is here. We hope you're enjoying long days spent in the sun with the sand beneath your feet, warm balmy nights with friends and a cocktail in hand. Perhaps you’re spending summer by the pool, at a beautiful resort or exploring new faraway places, walking through nature.
No matter where you are this summer, the best thing about this time of year is that it’s a superb chance to relax and enjoy yourself, but did you know that linen garments are great for travel and can make your summer fun even more fantastic? Not only is the fabric light to pack and can easily mix and match with your other pieces, linen also helps to keep your body cool while in the summer sun while on vacation. The natural fibres of linen are also gentle on your skin, helping to keep you comfortable and carefree to enjoy your holiday.
To celebrate this fantastic time of year, we have shared with you below some of our favourite summer holiday destinations, with tips on which linen items would be perfect to pack in your suitcase!

Bacalar is a town in south-eastern Mexico near the Belize border. It’s on Lake Bacalar, also called the Lagoon of Seven Colors due to its blue and turquoise hues.

This town, however, is small and not heavily frequented by international tourists, adding a different kind of charm to this summer paradise.
