Growing Linen

Linen is a unique eco-friendly fabric. Almost no fertilizers are used in growing flax which is the plant used to make linen.

The production of linen fabric uses 5 to 20 times less water and energy that the production of cotton or man-made fibers.

During the growth process flax enriches and enhances rather that depleting the soil.

Fiber Properties

Due to parallel arrangement of its fibers, linen is a stronger and sturdier than cotton. The tensile strength of linen thread is twice as high as that of cotton and three times that of wool.

Linen is completely natural and is a fully biodegradable resource

Due to its unique properties, linen undergoes a molecular change when wet and becomes stronger, resulting in greater longevity than cotton.
