How to Care for Linen
Linen has some strong attributes that place it high on the list of eco-friendly fabrics. Its versatility and environmental properties make it the perfect lightweight fabric for summer. For this reason its plays an integral part in our summer collection year after year.
The Finest Producers
This summer our collection features some of the finest, most beautiful yarns from crisp white linen shirts made from the finest French flax, to beautifully cut tailoring the from the finest producer of Irish linen: the renowned Baird McNutt.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Linen is produced from the fibres of the flax plant which require only rainwater to grow, making it a eco-friendly alternative to cotton. Every year the growing of flax in Europe results in the capture of 250,000 tonnes of CO2, so it really is a breath of fresh air for the planet.
Better With Age
Our European linen has a wonderfully soft hand feel which only gets better with age. This is down to the washing formula applied to the fabric, which gives it that special softness and minimises creasing. With every wash, it becomes softer and its natural beauty and lustrous quality are enhanced. It’s also hypoallergenic, so really soft on sensitive skin.
