Inspired by Mackinac Island on Lake Michigan, this sham was designed to reflect the serenity and refinement of the island. The center is intricately quilted with a gently scalloped border. In 1922, James Taylor started importing damask linens from Ireland, setting up a modest, but successful, shop. Seventy-five years later, his entrepreneurial spirit and love of textiles inspired his great niece, Lynne Taylor, to begin designing and importing her own linens. Today, Taylor Linens remains a family affair with Lynne, her sister Debra, and her nieces, Julie and Alison, all helping to make this little company a huge success.
