With our hearts, by experience and focus on the future. With roots since 1896, Home Linen is a family business.
We are very proud to introduce to you our story. The existence of our family business starts in 1896, the establishment of the ‘Free Lace and Embroidery School’ in Maldegem by the sisters Cromheecke. In 1905 the school and the apprenticeship of the Sisters Cromheecke hardly existed for 10 years and already had more than 100 pupils and 300 workers.
