Linen is one of the oldest fabrics in the world, made from fibres from the common flax plant.



Common flax is an annual crop: planted in spring and harvested in autumn.

Before use, the flax fibre is separated from the stalk and pre-treated with micro-organisms, either in water or in the field.

During the pre-treatment, the flax fibres become suitable for further processing.




Linen makes a very strong yarn, and clothes made from it absorb moisture well and dry faster than woollen items.

Linen is a very good conductor of heat, which gives the fabric a cool feel and makes it ideal for making summer clothes.

The fabric is antibacterial and antiperspirant.

A person wearing linen clothes sweats 1.5 times less than when wearing cotton clothes.




Linen has a wide range of uses: clothing, accessories, and various home textiles (bed linen, curtains, towels, etc.)
