About Us

We love life, colour and style.

When people celebrate life’s good times or are organising an important event, we like to help them put on a good show. Most special occasions involve feasting together around the dining table - a table we believe should look as special as the occasion itself.

That’s where we come in!

Once upon a time (last century) if you were organising a special event and wanted great looking tablesettings, you could have anything you liked - so long as it was white! Our parent company CLEAN are very, very good at this. But it occurred to them that people wanted to bring a little more colour and ‘touchy-feelyness’ to the table. So Special Occasion Linen was born and quickly established itself across the land as the reliable provider of quality tablelinen available for hire in a range of ever-growing colours and fabrics.

Special Occasion Linen runs from its purpose built HQ in Ross-on-Wye. From here, we source all our own fabrics and process everything ourselves, which is why we really can guarantee the quality of every single order (our people can spot a dodgy napkin at 20 paces!)

We’re constantly looking at ways to make Special Occasion Linen even more special for your occasions with linen in yet more colours and fabrics offered with a friendly, informed and efficient service.
