Linen is one of the oldest and most luxurious fabrics in history. It was often associated with durability and richness. It is one of the most sustainable & durable fabric and it never fades from fashion. Why choose linen and why it’s so good?
1. Highly breathable and heat-conductive
Yes, linen keeps you both cool and warm based on the season! Linen is a highly breathable and heat-conductive fabric. During summer, linen cools you off and in the winter, it keeps you cozy and warm.
It’s because of the natural properties of the flax fiber. It is a natural insulator and can release excess humidity.
2. Durable & long lasting
Linen is known as the world’s strongest natural fiber. It is 3 times stronger and 5 times more resistant to abrasion than cotton. Thus linen clothing can last for years and can even be left as inheritance.
Linen clothes will not lose their shape after washing, and will even become softer over time.
3. Hypoallergenic & anti-bacterial
Linen is hypoallergenic – it doesn’t cause allergies. This means that people with allergies or sensitive skin don’t need to worry about having an allergic reaction when wearing linen.
It also has wicking and moisture-retention properties. That makes it anti-bacterial and pathogen-resistant. Linen can also absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water without feeling wet. That also doesn’t allow bacteria to grow and makes linen a very comfortable choice.
4. Sustainable luxury textiles
Linen is one of the greenest fabrics because flax plant cultivation is by far more sustainable than cotton.
Flax plants can grow in poor soil, requires very little water and are very resilient. Every part of the flax plants is used in making different products from linen clothing to linseed oil. Linen is also totally biodegradable so when you dispose of the cloth, it will not cause any harm to the environment.
Comfort is one of the best benefits of wearing linen. It is lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking, and thermoregulating. That makes it one of the top choices when choosing comfortable clothing.
6. Stimulates blood flow
Linen has tiny breaks throughout the fabric. They creates a light massaging effect which stimulates blood flow and promotes relaxation.
7. Easy to care for
Appropriate linen care is important, however it doesn’t require any special treatment. It can be machine washed and tumble dried or hung to dry naturally. All you need to remember is to use cold water and avoid bleach or detergents.
Linen doesn’t need to be ironed to look good. Wrinkles are a part of linen beauty an are considered a sign of authenticity and good quality. That effortless elegance can’t be found in any other material.
For the love of comfort, style and sustainability, we choose linen clothing.
