Linen is a plant-based fabric made from flax making it a suitable option for vegans. Flax can be grown on rough terrain that is often considered unsuitable for food production and is typically cultivated and processed without chemicals. In addition, flax grows naturally and requires no additional water other than rainwater and is naturally biodegradable.
Aside from being an eco-friendly fabric, clothing, and hair accessories made from linen are a great addition to any capsule wardrobe. Constructed out of hollow fibres, linen acts as a natural insulator, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter so your garment can be worn year-round. Linen can also absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture while still feeling dry to the touch, an amazing feat for a piece of cloth!
Linen is durable yet soft against the skin and is the only fabric that becomes softer after every wash so you and your garment will have a long-lasting relationship.
