About the fibers
Linen is a one of a kind plant. It prefers colder areas, that is why the biggest plantations in Europe are in France and Belgium. Extracting its fibers is a delicate process and needs a technology that sorts them and selects them with care. Its sewing is also an art. Even though the final fiber is 30% more resistant than cotton, in this processing stage it is very fragile and needs a production rhythm that is paced and an advanced sewing technology.
Once sewn, linen is on of the more resistant materials made out of natural fibers and it holds its quality on a long term:
- Keeps a constant body temperature, crisp on summer days and warm during winter
- Has antibacterial properties as it dries faster, does not allow bacteria to form or adhere
- As it is so resistant, it is a long term investment – keeps its qualities for tens of years
