24 L uxury linen company Matouk has debuted a custom monogramming service via its website. Now most Matouk linens, from matelassé shams to dinner napkins, can be monogrammed in 16 different styles, from one to three letters in various thread colors, with your choice of size and placement of the monogram. Combining innovative technology with almost a century of expertise creating personalized linens has resulted in an atelier experience online, says Sarah Verardo, Matouk's senior ecommerce manager of digital. This isn't exactly new territory for Matouk — a third-generation family- owned company that's been creating luxury linens and monograms for 90 years. John Matouk arrived in the U.S. from Damascus, Syria, in 1929, armed with experience working in Venice at one of the finest embroidery houses in the world. He and his entrepreneurial wife, Maude — who had started her own business selling linens by appointment in her 20s and had opened her own store — joined forces to launch Matouk.

The event was a runaway success, with dozens of chef-led stations serving a bounty of dishes — many of them anchored by locally sourced ingredients. That's where the magic of Chefs for Farmers takes root: The concept sheds light on the all- important relationship between local chefs and Texas farmers. Since then, Chefs for Farmers has blossomed into a three-day culinary to-do, culminating with The Main Event, now held at the sprawling Dallas Heritage Village Sunday, November 3. The Sunday event includes fare from 50 chefs and restaurants, more than 40 wineries and distilleries, eight breweries, and an array of displays from local Texas farmers. New to the PaperCity-sponsored weekend is a must-attend Farm Tour with the Seed Project Foundation Saturday, November 2, during which guests will visit three North Texas farms (Profound Microfarms, McKinney Roots, Cartermere Farms) for a moveable feast led by chefs Julio Ortiz, Andrea Shackelford, and Junior Borges.
