Signature Handcrafted Linen Wear at Lilify

Posted on September 16th, 2019 by Lilify

When Lilify creates our signature line of linen wear, we incorporate our belief in ethical best practices, our respect for fine fiber, and our love of silhouettes that are simultaneously relevant and timeless.

Our pieces are made out of 100% fine European sourced linen. Linen is a textile made from the fibers of flax. It is beloved for being a strong, absorbent and exquisite natural fabric. The quality and weight of the textile allows for garments that offer both a flattering drape and a lithe movement.

Our pieces are hand sewn locally by a team of three talented, dedicated garment makers. Colleen, Sarah, and Erin have been sewing their entire lives and approach their skill with passion and an artful care. We have an abundant stock of our styles, in many shades, available in the shop, located at 281 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey. In addition, we are able to have any piece, in any available color, constructed with a 2-3 week lead time. (We offer free shipping.)

Lilify designs our pieces to be classically elegant and informed by modern lines - refined and easy to wear. Our pieces are designed to make you feel the most "you" in all your endeavors – chic, straightforward, sophisticated, yet understated. We invite you to explore our collection on our website.
