Linen is a plant based natural fibre, it's made from the stem of the flax plant which blooms with the beautiful blue flowers you see above.
Unlike other crops, every part of the flax plant is used. For example flaxseeds and linseed oil are some of the by-products of flax production. They have huge health benefits thanks to their richness in omega-3 fatty acids.
Flax also grows naturally and does not require chemicals to be processed into a textile unlike conventional cotton. It is also resilient and is able to grow on a majority of soils.
Flax fibres are so sought after because they are recyclable, biodegradable and carbon positive. So they actually absorb more carbon dioxide in the growth phase than they release during processing.
We have some lovely new linen styles available for you to enjoy. Both made from a knitted jersey fabric which means creasing is nothing to worry about.
Features a flattering V neck and half sleeve, pockets hidden in the side seams and a lightweight lining. This is the kind of dress you can easily dress up or down, day to night with a simple change of accessories.
With a racer back and cute front pocket, this quirky future classic is a fun addition to your summer capsule wardrobe. Great for layered looks in the city or for a trip to the beach.
Both of these styles are from our friends at About. They make innovative high quality leisurewear. They focus on both ethics and sustainability in their factory in Lithuainia.
