Foxtrot Home is a New Zealand business owned and operated by us, Kiwi sisters Kate & Prue. We started our small, boutique company when trying to source quality flax linen bedding for our own homes but were not able to afford the options offered in the NZ marketplace. We have put a lot of time and care into finding the right people to produce beautiful quality bedding at an accessible price for our customers and now we’re proud to offer you just that!
Every one of our bedding items is made from 100% flax linen sourced from Normandy, Northern France. The climate and environment in France is well known as the best in the world for sustainably growing premium quality flax linen. Once harvested, the certified 165gsm French Flax Linen is baled and sent to China where it is then received by our chosen makers who are trusted with weaving, dyeing and then sewing your beautiful bedlinen to our specifications, before sending it to us in Auckland. Your linen is 100% ethically made by a family-owned and operated business employing no more than 60 people and whose owners share the same personal and business values as we do. We know because we visit China every year (barring during COVID!) and we can proudly say we have observed every part of the manufacturing process.
Once in Prue’s safe hands in Auckland, 90% of Foxtrot Linen is sent out to you in compostable packaging from R3 Pack. Linen is packaged in either linen bags or recycled tissue paper.
