Linen, Linen Everywhere!
From Italy to Linen Road
Linen Road evolved through a lifelong love of linen clothing, of all things Italian and the serendipitous finding of a small country store in an art deco arcade, where an iconic picture theatre and quirky shops surrounded the linen store we started with – Etika.
The Linen Road online store connects linen, Italy and the newly named stores Olivetta under its umbrella website whilst allowing Olivetta the linen shopfronts to operate independently.
The original store is now located in an eclectic space opposite the Conservatorium of Music and the new Lismore Art Gallery in Keen Street. Olivetta on River, our coastal store, opened in early 2019 on River Street in Ballina The stores have similar stock but added to Italian linen are several linen labels some locally designed but made in India or Vietnam plus we have some new upmarket linen labels arriving for high summer 2020
- Linen Road is all Italian linen
- from linen t-shirts to harem pants
- from edgy linen dresses to peasant skirts

Linen will be available all year round with lighter linen in summer, a heavier linen added in the winter months, making it possible to find that special linen piece for your cruise, that winter break up north, an overseas trip or simply to wear layered during the Australian winter.
Or, as we have just experienced in 2020, with months of staying at home, linen can be worn home teaching, studying, walking the dog or watching Netflix, with matching boots or slippers and in summer sandals and thongs. And there’s not a long flowing linen dress or a palazzo pant that doesn’t look good with bare feet So simple So natural So classy
Linen doesn’t discriminate it makes you feel good whenever or wherever and no matter who you are
Most linen on the Linen Road site is Italian, whether Talia Benson a French based label made in Italy, Montaigne also made in Italy from a fabulous quality linen in great colours to Purolino an edgy Italian label and Imagine one of our favourites From cool to classy, from elegant to edgy there’s something for everyone
Sizing varies from S/M/L/XL to a one size fits all from size 10 to 16-18 with generous styles fitting larger sizes whilst also catering for sizes 8-10.
Thank you for visiting Linen Road and please remember we are here to help with any decisions whether style, size, fit or colour.
Due to the life changing events of 2020 you may find our stock not always as accessible as in the past due to manufacturing and shipping delays, difficulty in sourcing fabrics and at times a shortage of staff depending on lockdowns and border closures!
There may also be a longer period in despatching orders due to shortages of styles, sizes and colours at times so please bear with us as we work hard to get your orders out in a matter of days
Despite some hurdles in the past six months we have not lost our sense of humour in the tough times, our passion for linen, or to dress our followers in the edgiest, most elegant or baggiest of linen styles they so choose! W e love linen and hope you can find something on Linen Road to make you feel as good as we do, wearing linen anywhere and everywhere
Happy shopping Janette@LinenRoad
