About linen

Linen fabric is woven from the fibers of the flax plant and is a completely natural resource - perhaps the most ecologically sound textile available.

Although only the finest fibers are used in linen production, nothing is wasted; excess seeds, oil, stem and fiber are used for everything from soap to animal feed and paper. Few products are as well preserved as flax.

Production of linen fabric consumes 5-20 times less water and energy than production of cotton or synthetic fabrics. Linen fabric is biodegradable and recyclable.

Linen threads and textiles increase approximately 20% in strength when wet. Linen fabric thus becomes stronger when you wash it and thus lasts longer than, for example, cotton.

Linen is basically lint-free, antistatic, hypoallergenic and naturally repels insects while providing UV protection.

How to take care of linen fabric and products

Linen is a very resistant material and can be washed in medium to high temperatures. However - since our textiles are printed, the best way to get the colors to stay clear and fresh is to first soak the fabric and then wash at a maximum of 30 degrees without spinning or tumble drying.

Always iron while the fabric is damp, it will make any creases disappear (unless you want them there of course!) and it will be easier to get an even result. Then let the fabric air dry.

Never tumble dry! The heat causes the fibers to break and the fabric becomes more fragile.
