Derived from the flax plant, linen is an almost magical fibre. The flax plant is incredibly versatile. The seeds can be used for wallpaper, cosmetics, bedding, paint and even roof insulation. It has a low environmental impact, needing less water than cotton in the growing process. Every part of the wonderful flaxseed can be used in some way and it is a completely biodegradable product.
The planet-friendly factor of linen is one thing we love about linen but the fact that it is strong, durable, soft and absorbent means we can craft it into gorgeous lightweight garments. Our linen clothing is naturally moisture-wicking, so it is perfect at keeping you dry and cool in the warmer months; but did you know linen is also an excellent conductor of heat, able to keep you warm and cosy in the cooler months.
We are often asked about the wrinkly appearance of linen when worn or washed. Being a fabric with no elasticity, we advise embracing this unique appearance.
