The qualities of flax.

Linen is an exquisite Liberian fiber of plant origin, characterized by its softness, flexibility, and a range of exceptional properties.

But what exactly are these properties? To begin with, linen boasts remarkable resistance to wear and tear, alongside a robust defense against UV rays. Furthermore, its hygroscopic nature allows it to absorb moisture efficiently, while also providing excellent insulating capabilities.

Moreover, linen fabric stands out for being hypoallergenic, thermoregulatory, breathable, antistatic, and anti-pilling. Additionally, its biodegradable nature underscores the environmental consciousness behind its use.

Collectively, these qualities render linen an ideal material for crafting household linens and versatile clothing suitable for all four seasons, including 100% linen items, silk & linen blends, and wool & linen or wool & cashmere combinations.

Linen’s appeal extends beyond its functional attributes to its environmental benefits.

It is distinguished by its eco-friendliness, exceptional properties, and sustainability, making it a favored choice across various sectors. These range from fashion and furniture to industrial applications in composite materials or food netting.

Our European linen, meticulously cultivated and selected by our partner Terre de Lin in Normandy, exemplifies the commitment to environmental stewardship. It can be grown without the need for fertilizers or pesticides, thriving in the temperate climates of Western Europe with minimal chemical intervention. Remarkably, a single hectare of flax can remove 3.7 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Given its low-impact production and the potential for sustainable cultivation, linen is increasingly recognized as a fiber of growing interest in a world that is progressively leaning towards eco-friendly practices.
