Linen fibres come from the cellulose fibres in the stalk of the flax plant. It is planted with a seed and harvested within about 100 days, when the plant is blooming with green leaves and flowers. Flax requires very little water, pesticides, or maintenance, and can grow well in most types of soil regardless of quality. The linen that comes from flax is strong, naturally moth resistant, and has temperature regulating properties – meaning it stays cool in warm temperatures.
The loose structure of linen gives it a relaxed look and breathable feel. It holds colour well, giving it a lustrous shine. We use linen in a variety of garments for men and women, especially when designing for spring and summer. Its light weight makes it a perfect fabric to use for shirts, tees, and trousers.
