Discover the Timeless Charm of Oakbank Linen

The Dream Behind Oakbank Linen

Every great design begins with an even better story.

“I have been drawn to heavier, 100% linen looking options as it has that old-home, laundry blowing in the wind feel that is so timeless and comforting.” Chanice Parker muses as she recalls the inception of Oakbank Linen.

“But I searched and searched, for over a year, and couldn’t find custom made curtains that were giving me the mood I wanted.”

“Then I found 5 Minute Blinds. And through a journey of collaboration, we sourced an effortless and organic fabric, and I’m excited to be able to bring my vision to life and share it with everyone.”

All the charm of linen, with none of the downside

Chanice’s quest for the perfect fabric led her to 5 Minute Blinds.

While 100% linen offers a timeless aesthetic, it comes with challenges: it’s prone to shifting sizes, creasing, and fading. And the fabric doesn’t work well with an S-Fold heading.

Our mission was to capture the charm of linen, while eliminating these downsides.
