Linen is manufactured from the flax plant. The entire flax crop is used so no waste is created during harvesting. Processing uses less energy than artificial fibres processing. It has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and offers UV protection.
See the wonderful French (with English subtitles) 'BE LINEN' movie by Benoit Millot that beautifully shows how flax is crown and European linen is made.
Our linen fabrics are imported from Europe and have been sanforised by the manufacturer. This means they have been prewashed and preshrunk without any chemicals.
