Linen - 100% Natural
Linen is one of the oldest fabrics known to man, as it is used in clothing and the first dyed linen fibers have records dating back to 2,500 BC.
Linen fiber can be classified as a natural fiber, of plant origin, obtained from the stem of plants in the Linaceae family.
Linen fiber is extracted from the stem of the flax plant, which can be up to 1.2 meters long, with blue or white flowers.
The fiber gives the linen fabric certain characteristics that distinguish it from others, making it one of the most noble, such as: it is shiny and flexible, elegant and soft, strong and durable, has low elasticity, has great tensile strength, is highly absorbent and dries quickly, is thermo-regulable, anti-allergic, anti-bacterial, and is resistant to wear and abrasion.
Linen: a sustainable concept
Linen is among the most environmentally friendly fabrics that exist, because when 100% it is completely vegetable,and therefore 100% natural. It is quite sustainable because there is no waste of material during the production of linen fabric, where only the best fibers are used, because what is not used in the making, can be used in other industries, such as paper and cosmetics, and the cultivation itself is renewable, not making the land where it is planted useless.
The remaining parts - linseed, oil, straw and low-quality fibers are used in the production of a wide range of products: soap, healthy oil to paper and even cattle feed.
