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 beautiful linen scarves have been produced entirely by hand by a small group of women artisans in Nepal as part of a sustainability initiative. Our women have been trained in spinning and natural dyeing techniques working with some of the finest natural fibres. Not only will your beautiful hand loomed scarf be an heirloom piece, your purchase is supporting sustainable development, ethical labour practices and above all a superior product - the ultimate in ethical, sustainable luxury.
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.
