WHAT WE LOVE
Orient Linen Co. is a handmade linen and gift shop on Long Island's North Fork. Housed in a 19th Century former barbershop in the charming hamlet of Orient annexed to the home of the founder, textile designer and historian Janet Markarian. After spending many years in London, Hong Kong and Mainland China, Janet moved to Orient where she opened her shop in 2002. Abigail Collier traded her career as a news producer in 2022 to join her mother in the family business.
Together, the mother-daughter duo have filled Orient Linen Co. with a charming assortment of homemade table and bed linens, baby quilts that can be customized, and a lovely selection of vintage and gifts.
A charming North Fork shop filled with handmade table and bed linens, homeware, vintage, and gifts.
