Linen, precious as the future
The Ould Linen
From a seed as pure as when nature first selected it, comes 1873, a quality of yarn made the way it used to be back in time with that purity and devotion that make it so special.
In selection and processing we wanted to retrieve the tradition of those who cultivated linen in Normandy for generations: no chemicals added to the plants and keeping the fibre far from any stress or external alteration. We design and build our own spinning frames, which we have adapted to take them back in time, so as to spin the yarns just as it once used to be done at Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale.
This linen retains all its valuable properties in its fibres, which translate into an agreeable touch and softness on the skin, as well as visibly preserving its regularity of texture.
Like many age-old products, it respects human nature and the environment. With our 1873 you can dream with us of a better future to stand on the shoulders of our long-lasting skills. You can create shirts, jackets, tablecloths and sheets like those that you still find in all their beauty in family wardrobes.Con esso potete creare camicie, giacche, tovaglie, lenzuola come quelle che si conservano ancora stupende negli armadi di famiglia.
