An Interview with Rory O’Mara, Founder of Saphyr Pure Linen

I have collected antique linens for many years and always celebrate when I find a linen sheet. Linen is such a wonderful fabric because the texture is soft and it’s a cool fabric to the touch. Imagine my delight when I discovered Saphyr Pure Linen, a modern collection of fabulous bed linens that is available today. I knew that behind this company there was a very special someone who really understands comfort and beauty. That lady is Rory O’Mara, and I loved talking with her about her linen.

Rory O’Mara knows fabric. Her love of textiles and fashion set her on a path of developing a passion into a career that would take her around the world as an industry innovator. She was the Director of International Fashion Marketing at Cotton Incorporated for many years. She was responsible for Domestic and International marketing, seeking out new ideas and trends, and leading textile mills and manufacturers in research and development. In her travels around the world, she realized that Europeans had the luxury of sleeping on sheets of pure linen. She was hooked! In fact, she was transformed.

Rory decided to create her own collection for the American market and with her intuitive abilities, she brought French linen to the marketplace. “French linen is the best,” Rory explains. “In the area from the Belgium coast into France through Normandy is where the very linen is milled and that’s where I get mine.” One touch and you will know she is right.

Neutrals are the signature colors of her collection. With luxurious names like Calming Cream, Fresh White, Blissful Blue, Peaceful Pink, and Simply Natural, you are already in the mood to snuggle into a bed made up with these linens. She chose to finish her sheets and pillowcases in a deckled edge, taking note of trends in home furnishings. And the pillowcases are oversized, making them perfect for any pillow.

An Interview with Rory O’Mara, Founder of Saphyr Pure Linen

“The name Saphyr is the common name of the flower that blooms on the flax plant, where the linen fibers come from. Her philosophy is that there is “truth in Linen” with its natural tendency to softly wrinkle and have that comfortable lived-in appearance, while being cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Saphyr pure linen is for those who wish to live well and rest easy. With her discerning eye, impeccable taste, and unmatched knowledge of fabrics and trends, Rory saw an opening in the industry for the introduction of fine linen bedding, matching her expertise with developing a product sure to be welcome in any home. Her linens are available on her website at www.saphyrpurelinen.com
