Natural/Organic Linen

NATURAL LINEN

While cotton has certainly been around for a long time and served us with a comfortable fabric, it’s linen that is truly the optimal material for our bodies. Linen refers to the fabric created from the flax plant, and it’s one of the oldest fibres in the world, with dryed flax fibres found in a cave in Dzudzuna dating as far as 30,000 years ago. Since then, linen has stuck with humanity as a familiar fabric that has been manufactured locally in most areas as recently as a century ago.

Since then, domestic production of linen has faded, but linen is still highly valued among people around the world, to the point that it can be considered a luxury product. It is widely appreciated for its incredible endurance, elegant lustre, as well as a handle unlike any other fabric. It’s become a symbol of status, while still maintaining its close ties to nature, thanks to its many health benefits.
