1. It’s derived naturally

Produced using the entirety of the flax plant, linen fibers are grown free of GMOs and require little to no irrigation, relying only on rainfall.

2. It’s sustainably sourced

None of the flax plant is wasted in the production of linen. The plant can also grow in low quality soil and replenishes nutrients into the ground, improving the conditions for future crops. What’s more, the fibers are completely biodegradable, too.

3. It’s breathable & temperature regulating

Renowned for keeping you cool in Summer and warm in Winter, linen is a good choice year-round. Championing comfort and style, this timeless textile is a worthwhile investment with no expiry date.

4. It’s durable & long lasting

Linen is famed for its strength. 30% stronger than conventional cotton, the fibers improve and become softer with every wash, without losing their durability. Crafted to be loved and last, our pieces stand the test of time.

5. It’s effortless & carefree

Wonderfully relaxed, linen does not seek perfection. It is a lived-in fabric that embraces the everyday. With a beautifully nubby quality, the beauty lies in the weave, with no need to iron. Creases only add to its charm…
