What is linen?

Linen is a natural material made from flax, also known as linseed. Flax is used both as a source of food (including an egg substitute in Vegan baking) and for its fibre to make clothing, bedding, and towels to name just a few. If you are a visual person like me, this 2 minute video on making linen is definitely worth the watch.

Is Linen Sustainable? 

Compared to other natural materials like cotton, linen requires less water and pesticides to grow, and you can avoid pesticides altogether by choosing organic linen.
Linen is 30% stronger than cotton and is long lasting thanks to the long, thick flax fibres that are spun or woven together to form the linen fabric.
There is very little waste from growing flax as most parts are used either for fabric or food production.
It is also said that linen improves with age, becoming softer with every wear making it a wonderful life-long addition to any conscious closet.
            These qualities make linen a great sustainable choice for your home and clothing.

            Why we are a huge fan of linen dresses?

            While soft, linen can have a natural stiffness, which means linen dresses have a beautiful flow and drape to them. Linen is also breathable and a great fabric to wear in Australia as the fibres are porous and keep you cool in the mid-day sun, while also having the ability to insulate during cooler periods. This makes long linen dresses a great tran-seasonal choice. Linen is also fast drying, making it perfect for beachwear that might get splashed at the shoreline.
