To know the history of linen is to know the history of humanity. Linen has indeed had an incredible journey from humble bandage to a staple in aristocratic fashion. Today it is one of the most preferred fabric choices because of its elegant anatomy that allows designers to create beautiful clothing. When taken care of, linen can last for decades and becomes softer with age transforming your memories into keepsakes.
The sustainability of Linen.
Untreated linen made from the versatile flax plant is fully biodegradable with a cost-effective production value because it requires fewer resources than other natural fabrics. Linen is also one of the most durable fabrics and can beat the likes of Egyptian cotton in that department.
An important advantage of linen is that it comes from the flax plant. The entire flax plant is used in production, so there is no waste from the weaving process. Flax is easy to grow, requires less water, fertilisers, and insecticides. It is truly a friend of the planet.
Linen Loves you.
Did you know that the Egyptians used linen as a currency? Its durable strength and luxurious feel make linen a very desirable commodity. A summer favorite, the linen fabric is naturally breathable, highly absorbent, and a natural insect repellent.
Linen is good for your skin because it allows you to breathe, keeping you cool and sweat-free. This is why so many bedding fabrics are made from linen. It is also hypoallergenic, making it the perfect choice for sensitive skin.
