Linen is a natural material with great advantages when used as a fabric for garment making and homeware.
Linen perfectly absorbs humidity and adapts to hot and cold temperatures making it comfortable to wear. It doesn‘t cause any allergic reactions, it is antistatic and doesn’t stain easily.
Linen is a great choice in terms of sustainability and its credential far outweigh those of cotton:
- Flax grows naturally and thrives in the European climate, it typically requires fewer pesticides, herbicides and fungicides than cotton and its growing term is relatively short meaning that far less water is required over the growing period.
- There is very little waste in the production of linen as parts of the plant can be used for consumption and other products.
- Linen is strong and durable, its good wearing properties will mean that garments last longer.
- Linen is easy to wash and naturally dries quickly.
