It's all linen
Linen is fabric we use so much in our daily lives isn’t it?
Bed sheets, curtains, tapestries and huge variety of clothes to name just a few.
Linen is woven from flax plant the stems of this plant naturally produce a fiber that gives linen it distinctive and well-loved quality and texture. Flax plants are grown in many countries and all the linen in our stunning array of products comes from flax plants that have been grown and woven in Europe, Belarus and Russia.
Flax plants are low input plants so don’t require as much fertilizer and pesticide as many other similar crops. This also makes flax plants a very renewable energy source and with a short growing cycle linen can be produced quite quickly.
Flax plant fibers are also incredibly strong and even more absorbent than what is often considered their biggest rival cotton. This can be seen when you compare their production as the production of linen use 5 to 20 times less water and energy to produce when compared to cotton and other man-made fibers.
Unlike many alternative fabrics linen actually
gets stronger if it gets wet due to its molecular structure.
Properties of Linen Fibres
Due to the parallel arrangements of linen’s fibres are stronger than many other similar materials including cotton and wool.
Linen is very long lasting, durable, and naturally has antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Linen is also getting softer every time it goes through a machine wash.
All our high-quality linen products will not fade and there’s no risk of the colors bleeding during a wash.
