About Us

My name is Bernice McAughtrie and I am the owner/director of The Linen Collection.

I adore good quality bed and table linen and eventually found The Linen Collection products, I was rapt!   When I had the opportunity to purchase the company in 2010 I did.

My husband Richard Nightingale and our daughter Gretchen also love this collection of bed, table, children’s linen and silk and cotton nightwear and assist me in many ways with the company be it selling, loading products to the website or just general site set up at shows/events, the list goes on.

We are always adding to our range of products and now have luxurious  linen from Lithuania products include tablecloths, curtains, towels,cushion covers and T.Towels.

We are passionate about all our products and will continue to give you the excellent service you have had in the past.

The Linen collection products are exclusive in New Zealand and it is our privilege to offer this wide range of unique bed linen, table linen, baby linen and silk and cotton nightwear direct to the public, we still stock our original product which is all hand embroidered to perfection and very much in demand by repeat customers.

With the advent of sophisticated machines embroidery skills have become a handcraft. We want to keep the beauty of hand embroidery on fine cotton sheets, table linen, our pure silk and cotton nightwear alive. We are fortunate to have people in Vietnam, who have perfected this embroidery skill over many hundreds of years. They are not only skilled in embroidery but also have a passion for this beautiful work.

We admire and will continue to support these master embroiders in order to bring this product to you. The standard of workmanship is excellent and carries my personal guarantee.

We visit Vietnam often to source new product and designs and to ensure we are getting the best product for our customers. We continue to introduce new designs, but still stock many favourite designs from the past.

When we update the website with new products we will also keep you informed via our newsletter.
