Lemuel MC London
Our founder, Marta Cernovskaja, is a Siberian-born textile graduate who spent her young life in Lithuania and formative years in Brighton. She is now based in SE London by the Thames Barrier in Woolwich.I started Lemuel MC in 2015 after being “made redundant” from a luxury design house due to my chronic skin condition. With my confidence at its lowest ebb, my partner persuaded me to invest my time and skills in what I love – design and linen; linen being something that, as well as being sustainable and beautiful, is breathable, antibacterial and anti-allergic for the skin. At the heart of Lemuel MC is my belief (or fact?) that the future of fashion must be ethical, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Linen should play a big role. It is a natural fabric grown without the need for pesticides and with less water than cotton, and is durable and kind to even the most sensitive skin. Even if I didn't make linen clothes, I'd be wearing it every day.
Linen is so tactile and beautiful, and as well as the sustainability aspect, my second aim is to show that linen is not just for summer, but is perfect for winter too, being both breathable and perfect for layering. I founded Lemuel MC to harness the beauty and sustainability of linen with timeless “perfect simple” design and a commitment to a transparent and ethical way of working, showing with both our clothes and way of business that fashion can make the world a better place.

FREE lifetime repairs
Our clothes are designed and made to last but they’re not indestructible.
If they’re looked after there is no reason why they shouldn’t stay beautiful, and even softer, for years and years.
Clothes and accessories are meant to be worn, of course, and normal wear-and-tear does happen.
With this in mind, and as part of our commitment to sustainability, we will repair damage caused by normal wear-and-tear for FREE – all you pay is postage to us and back.
- Loose seams.
- Loose hems.
- Loose poppers.
- Broken poppers i.e. they don’t fix.
- Unstitched pockets.
It does not include:
- Damage beyond everyday wear-and-tear e.g. stains, cuts, burns.
- Damage caused by not following washing instructions.
- Most rips of the fabric itself (not the seams) – linen is tough so we’d be surprised to hear if it ripped, but please get in touch to ask if this happens.
We retain the right to refund the customer if stock levels change (or become out of stock) after purchase, and/or shipping/delivery fees (charges) change after purchase and/or other system errors occur after purchase.
