The Linen Edit


Linen is, by far, the undisputed king of the fabrics for summer. Its natural fibre is obtained from the stalks of the Linum plant, which became important during the Egyptian era, as they used it in their clothing production. It absorbs and wicks away moisture quickly, making it ideal for the warmer days.

Strength

It’s a strong and long-lasting fabric whose appearance improves as it ages. Contrary to cotton, after years of use and wash, a linen shirt will become shinier and smoother. And linen is even stronger when is wet.
