Luxurious Linen: Cool, Crisp and Comfortable as well as fashionable. That's what we feel about linen. It is one of the strongest natural fibers and gets stronger the more you wash it. It dates back to 8000 BC and was used as currency in Egypt at one time.
Linen will last for many seasons to come and that is why it is the perfect addition for any wardrobe.
With the hot summer ahead linen fibers allow air to flow making it a cool, light fabric to wear. It absorbs moisture without feeling damp. It is perfect for sunny days and allowing one to feel fresh all day. Linen is made of flax. Flax plants must be pulled from the ground to maintain the full length of their fibres. The plants are then left in a field to soften, so that the fibres are easier to separate. Once extracted, the fibres are collected, rolled and stored for two to three months for further softening, before they are twisted and processed with a spinning technique. This lengthy process is why linen is considered to be one of the most luxurious natural fabrics, and why linen is more expensive than other materials like cotton.
