Why choose linen: We love linen, it’s an amazing fabric. It is not only wonderful to wear (absorbent, breathable) it’s also highly sustainable! This is because:
The durability of linen (which is many times stronger than cotton) means it lasts longer than other materials. Even when linen does reach the end of its life, it doesn’t need to rot in a landfill. As a natural fibre, it’s fully compostable.
There is very little waste with flax. Other parts of the plant, like the seeds, can be used to produce linseed oil or flax seeds for consumption.
Flax grows naturally and requires no additional water other than rainwater, making it far more eco-friendly.
Very little energy is required to process flax.
Linen yarn is inherently strong, which reduces the need for starching during spinning and weaving.
The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2 .
