What is linen?

Linen is a natural fabric that is made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is an ancient material than was used by the Egyptians six thousand years before Christ. Linen is a beautiful material. In the past, almost everything we used in house was made of linen. The bedding, the tea towels and the tablecloths were all made of linen. But back to now! Organic linen is a great fabric. But why?

Why choose organic linen?

Linen is a very nice fabric. The yarn has slight changes in it's thickness which creates a special effect and linen shines lightly. But not only the looks of linen are good, the fabric also has other advantages. Firstly, linen ventilates well, which makes it a popular fabric for summer clothing. It also absorbs moisture and is very strong. In addition, linen is a strong material and you can iron the fabric, which wrinkles rather quickly.

What is organic linen?

Linen is a natural material, but not always organic. Because on the land chemical weed killers are used. And to make the yarn from the plant chemicals are used. But with linen this is much lower than for example with cotton. Yet it can always be better. Therefore choose clothing made of organic linen, where no chemicals have been used during the production.
