 About LINEN

 

  • The word linen is derived from the Latin for the flax plant, which is linum, and the earlier Greek linon.
  • Linen is one of the world's oldest fabrics. Mummies have been found wrapped in linen shrouds dating as far back as 4500 B.C.
  • Over time linen textiles become softer and actually improves in comfort.
  • When linen fabrics are in contact with the skin, the nodes along the length of the fibre absorb perspiration, then swell and release the moisture to the outside air, thus creating a fabric self cooled by evaporation. As a result linen is a popular choice for bedding particularly in hot climates.
  • Linen is highly hygroscopic as it is capable to rapidly absorb and yield moisture. It evaporates water as quickly as the pond surface. Linen can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in moisture while still feeling dry to the touch. That explains why linen cloth always feels fresh and cool
  • Linen is virtually lint free, non-static, non-allergenic, naturally insect-repellent and gives UV protection.
  • Linen is woven from the fibres of the flax plant and is a completely natural product. Linen fibre is totally biodegradable and recyclable..
  • Linen is renowned for its spectacular durability and long life. The tensile strength of linen thread is twice as high as that of cotton and three times that of wool;
  • The Flax cell is highly compatible with the human cell thereby producing benevolent effects on the human organism.
