A reputation for innovation

Nelen & Delbeke’s reputation is built on innovation, quality and service excellence. Our research and development is driven by a natural curiosity about textiles and their possibilities, and a desire to deliver quality products to our customers.

As quality remains our focus, we are proud that our linen is associated with both Masters of Linen® and Belgian Linen™. We also work with many different weft yarns, or fantasy yarns, which are woven into the flax warp yarns to create textiles with endless possibilities.

Creation is headed by Thierry Delbeke, who works closely with the design and technical team. Together they source inspiration from images, nature, fashion and any other influences that spark ideas. While we remain true to our focus on noble linen, we also explore consumer taste and preference trends by trying and testing different types of materials, finishes and print techniques.

Nelen & Delbeke produces two inspiration collections every year, with a total of around 200 new design innovations, a proportion of which are further developed together with customers. We constantly innovate because we enjoy pushing the boundaries of design and creativity to find new ways to satisfy and inspire our customers.
