Linen is a natural cellulose fiber, made from the stalks of the
flax plant Linum.There is indication to suggest that linen was
widely used in Egypt over 4,000 years ago. Some of the best
linen fabric is produced in Italian mills in Northern Italy hence
Italian linen is in great demand. They produce some of the finest
quality of pure flax linen fabric ensuring that the materials will
always be durable, strong, and comfortable. Flax fiber is the
strongest natural fiber and is resilient to damage from abrasion
and prolonged usage. The low elasticity of the fibers is what
gives linen garments that slightly wrinkled look. Linen does not
stretch and ensuring that linen shirts and linen trousers will
retain their natural shape.
Due to its porous nature, linen has moisture wicking properties so it easily absorbs and releases moisture, making it the best fabric for summer heat. Premium Linen fabrics have a natural luster while offering a supreme feeling of comfort, durability, crispness and breathability. Flax linen offers natural insulation in winter and breathability in summer, making it perfect for relaxed linen safari jacket or linen formal shirts. Good quality linen will become softer and silkier over time, while low-quality linen will retain its rigid and rough texture and will lose its shape. Pure linen fabric is biodegradable and eco friendly hence natural linen is becoming increasingly popular world over. These are the qualities we seek, making linen a truly outstanding and classic fabric.
