Well, hey there! I'm Carina and I'm the proud owner/designer/artist behind Long Lunch Linen, a napery brand based in the country music capital of Australia... you got it, Tamworth N.S.W.
I grew up on a cattle farm in the middle of the Liverpool Plains NSW and I feel privileged have had a childhood surrounded by animals, family, a close knit farming community and wide-open spaces. As far back as I remember, I’ve always wanted to be an artist and after studying design at UTS I worked in the creative industry in Sydney and Chile before moving back to Tamworth, NSW with my husband, two week old daughter and our fat grey cat called Bob.
I left my creative job in the big smoke realised this was the perfect opportunity to design my dream role. I wanted something I could do from my new home based in our rural community that combined my technical artistic skills with my love for entertaining friends and family. Hand-painted napery seemed like a good fit!
I adore what I do and in addition to offering a range of linen napery in on-trend colours, I create one-of-a-kind, hand-painted tablecloths and napkins that will add a splash of pizzazz to your next luncheon or special occasion.
My full-sized tablecloths (1.8 meters wide x 2.8 meters long) are sewn from supremely soft, high-quality 100% European flax linen and have been designed to cover large outdoor settings and dining tables. Large sized mix-and-match napkin pairs allow you to design your table down to the very last setting.
With a luxuriously soft feel that only pre-washed 100% European flax linen can afford, Long Lunch Linen strives to provide you with heirloom quality products at your family will treasure for generations to come.
