Our linen scarves have been hand-loomed using European linen which is also one of the most sustainable fibre crops grown.
Linen is one of the oldest fibres used in textiles and precedes chemical fertilisers and pesticides as well as synthetic fibres, the benefits are that it:
- Requires fewer resources and less water to grow and produce
- Can be grown without pesticides and chemicals
- Is durable meaning each piece lasts longer and reduces waste
- Is a natural biodegradable material which reduces waste
Although thicker than cotton, due to its weave and the natural properties of the flax plant, linen fabric is naturally breathable, allowing air to flow between the fibres. This means wearing linen clothing keeps you cooler in warmer weather.
