Linen: Natural Antiseptic
These days it's really important to pay attention to everything that touches your skin. Nothing can be compared to the natural touch of softened linen, especially when we talk about the most intimate things - bedding sets. Let's discover some properties of linen, reasons to fall in love and keep it forever!
This important property of flax fabric distinguishes it from other natural fibers. Anciently known that abrasion under a linen bandage heals much faster. Contained in flax material - silica - prevents the growth of bacteria, suppresses harmful microflora, acting as natural anti-virus, anti-microbial and anti-fungal agent.
Linen, because of its natural fibers and production process is inherently hypoallergenic. Sleeping in and wearing linen will help you avoid common allergic reactions found with other fabrics, particularly synthetics.
Natural flax fiber is indispensable for any season. On hot days, a product made of linen creates a cooling effect - the temperature between its surface and the skin stays a few degrees cooler. During cold weather, linen preserves heat and allows you to warm up quicker.
High Absorbability & Permeability
Flax fibre is capable of rapidly absorbing large amounts of water - up to a quarter of its own weight, while air gaps between the fibers, allowing the skin to breathe and contributes to a comfortable sleep.
Flax fabric is known to be 3 times stronger then cotton. Egyptian Mummies have been found wrapped in linens, proving this fabric stands the true test of time.
100% natural, biodegradable and recyclable. The cultivation and transformation of flax into linen is environmentally friendly requiring less irrigation, pesticides and energy than most other fibers. Also all the parts of the linen plants are used without leaving waste.
