 DID YOU KNOW
The textile linen is made from the fibers of the flax plant and is one of the oldest fabrics in the world.
 Linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, and easily releases moisture to the air to remain cool and dry to touch.
 Flax requires considerably fewer pesticides and fertilizers than other crops. The fibers are recyclable and eventually biodegrade.
 Linen is hypoallergenic and antibacterial –naturally!
 Linen protects you from the sun. It has shown to reduce gamma and solar radiation.
 Linen is one of the strongest natural fibers –it’s two to three times stronger than cotton.
 On average, linen fabrics have 12 times “longer life” than cotton and wool.
 The fabric is great during the summer months for it’s cooling sensations, but on the contrary, it is good in winter because of its warming features
 For ten thousand years or more, man has known this gentle gift of nature as the source of textiles with special properties: soft hand, rich color absorption, lasting durability and unrivalled comfort.
Linen is known as a high quality icon.
