Organic Linen

von Julia Leifert

Linen is the oldest textile fiber and, until a few decades ago, still considered the material of textiles until it was almost completely compressed by cotton in the 19th century. The natural fiber is obtained from the stems of the flax plant, which is very robust and even with conventional cultivation requires hardly any chemical fertilizer or pesticides. Linen is characterized by a high tear strength and longevity. The smooth fiber is very absorbent, moisture regulating and naturally dirt and odor resistant. Its cooling effect also makes linen a popular summer fabric. We only use linen from certified organic cultivation.
