Long Term Benefits
Linen fibre is strong, has an irregular surface and contains a wax. These are the qualities that give linen its unique structure and lustre. They also make linen hardwearing, effective in absorbing moisture and give it a natural protection against stains. Removing the linen from the plant is a time-consuming process, which is why it costs a little more. But linen also ages gracefully and grows more beautiful with each passing year.
Already thousands of years ago, humans discovered how the fibre in the flax plant’s stem can be treated, spun and woven into a durable linen fabric. Even today, flax is appreciated for its many qualities. For example, it has very good absorbency that makes it particularly great for kitchen towels. The flax fibre’s smooth surface gives bed linens a comfortable and cooling feel, but flax can also be mixed with cotton to get a slightly softer textile.
