Verilin, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-end linen products, creates collections of luxurious table, bed and interior linen, both for home and for some of the most refined addresses in the hospitality industry. The Verilin story started in 1956 when Etienne Vercruysse opened a workshop in the south of West-Flanders, where the flax industry was booming at the time. His daughter Laurianne took over the company in the 1980s and today his granddaughters Ilse and Anne-Sophie continue the company’s tradition.

The third generation specialises in made-to-order linen: every design is personal and part of a unique ritual between Verilin and the client, thanks to a combination of creativity, high-tech machinery and the irreplaceable craftsmanship of the workshop. The 13 artisans who represent the real strength of Verilin - some of them have been in the company for over 40 years now - weave, cut, hem, embroider and manually finish the fabrics.
