Lovin' on Linen
Who They Are
Tanya and Marco are an entrepreneurial minded husband-wife duo who had worked for big corporations their entire lives. They’d always wanted to start their own business, and after moving to the U.S. from Europe and eventually becoming empty nesters, the two began to research business models. Most of the advice they found was about starting a business with profit, not passion, as the top priority.
The couple tossed that advice to the wind and took a risk on something they’re both passionate about: linen! Marco and Tanya are from Italy and Belarus, where linen is a traditional good. Understanding that “linens” in the U.S. usually refer to a category of household goods rather than a material, Tanya and Marco call themselves linen evangelists and strive to share the glory of high quality linen with their consumers.
