There are a lot of reasons why we love linen. Not only is it beautiful to wear, it is one of the most ecologically friendly natural fibres you can use.
Linen is made from flax, the stalk is cultivated for its fibre. Flax grows naturally and requires less water and fewer pesticides than most other natural fibres. Because flax is a natural fibre it is completely recyclable and biodegradable. Flax is gentle on the land and is easy to incorporate into modern crop rotations, preventing soil degradation.
Linen is a very strong fibre, it has a high moisture absorbency and is hypo-allergenic. Furthermore the beauty of linen can be found in its ability to soften the more it is used.
Our gorgeous linen scarves play an important role in our mission to preserve the artisan crafts.
They have been hand loomed in a small village in West Bengal providing the opportunity for the next generation to continue the family tradition of weaving.
Linen yarn is inherently strong, which reduces the need for starching during spinning and weaving. We are currently providing ongoing work for 8 young weavers, who have been trained in weaving specifically for the production of our scarves and as we increase our orders, we will continue to provide opportunities for young weavers to learn these skills.
We think this is really special and we hope you do too.
This is a beautiful hand crafted product so we ask that you care for it accordingly. We don’t use chemical detergents, we recommend a gentle wool wash. Please do not dry in direct sunlight.
