caring for linen
a lot of times it is enough to just hang your linen pieces outside to air them out. if you do want to wash your linen pieces you can wash them in the washing machine (you can wash linen up to 60 degrees without any issues). important: linen soaks up water - don't fill your washing machine too much. also, the fibers contract during washing and then "fall apart" and loosen up again once you wear them. do not tumble dry but hang to dry. can wrinkle easily so iron with high heat for a clean look.
what is linen?
linen is made from the fibers of a flax plant and is one of the oldest fabrics in the world. linen fabric was already used thousands of years ago - some evidence suggests over 30 000 years ago.
why love linen?
linen is very durable and tear-resistant. it absorbs moisture well and dries fast. it has a cooling effect - making it the perfect summer fabric. paired with some warmer layers you can wear it all year round thanks to its temperature regulating properties.
the crazy thing - all linen needs is the natural precipitation to grow flax. most linen is grown in europe - even in poor soil during dry seasons. hardly anything goes to waste too!
