LINEN & FRENCH FLAX LINEN
Made from the woven fabrics of the flax plant it requires very little water to grow, meaning it's kinder on the planet to produce. On top of that the flax plant traps massive amount of Co2 from our atmosphere each year.
It's extremely durable and if cared for correctly, it can last for years - and years. Linen also softens with time making it comfortable and softer with each wash.
The wrinkles of linen is a sign of quality and although you might want to steam out the marks from the garment being folded, the beautiful creases that often stay, or come back quickly are a sign of a high quality linen.
