Flax has been known since the ancient ages. It is an oldest natural textile fiber. Historical sources dates almost 9000 years ago when flax was grown in the countries situated on the Mediterranean coast. Flax surface is slippery and smooth. It is a live natural fiber. Always ecologically-correct, every part of the flax plant is at man’s service.
It’s colour depends on various factors such as linen quality, circumstances of cultivation -humidity, temperature, sunlight, land surface and treatment. The Baltic Sea region is the most suitable place to cultivate flax because of its natural environment.
Linen fabrics are widely used in households for its strength and practicality. The utility of linen in the kitchen is unrivaled. Compared with cotton or other similar fabrics, linen fabric is much more durable (two to three times stronger) so clothes will last much longer.
Linen has many advantages over other textiles:
Linen is typically a little smoother than cotton and an incredibly strong fiber. Linen garment gets softer and softer over the time with washing and adjusts perfectly to the body. Flax remains colourfast and launders beautifully, but it’s good to remember, that under the direct sunlight items made from linen might change the colour. Linen requires ironing, but the tendency to wrinkle is often considered part of linen’s particular charm.
Linen offers fashion designers unlimited creative potential and wearers lasting enjoyment. No other fiber can offer this unique blend of luxury and comfort, supreme elegance and down-to-earth practicality.
