Go on, admit it; linen is like that really annoying friend that’s good at everything and gorgeous too but you just can’t help yourself, you need them in your life!
Seriously though, linen has to be one of those must have fabrics you need to have hanging in your wardrobe or on your bed. Whether you adore the feel of it on your skin, are captivated by its many beneficial properties or just love feeling comfortable and stylish in a material that’s soft and natural; adding a little linen into your everyday is a luxury you will enjoy for years to come.
What is linen?
It’s unique in that it’s highly sustainable as well as biodegradable and when treated well, becomes even more superior with time.
Linen is a natural material made from the fibres of a plant called flax, which is why linen is sometimes referred to as flax linen. The fibres are stripped from the plant, cleaned, woven together and sometimes dyed to create clothing, bedding and other types of materials.
Benefits of Linen -
This luxurious material carries a wide range of benefits making it highly versatile:
- While strong and durable, linen gets softer with each wash.
- Resistant to bacteria and naturally repels insects.
- Regulates temperature - it promotes airflow and is highly absorbent keeping you cool in even the hottest of summers.
- Made with love – linen production is a little more complex than many other materials and as such, it’s luxurious to touch and worth its weight in gold.
- All natural, sustainable and biodegradable.
