Linen is manufactured from the flax plant. The entire flax crop is used so no waste is created during harvesting. Processing uses less energy than artificial fibres processing. It has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and offers UV protection.
Our linen fabrics are imported from Europe and have been sanforised by the manufacturer. This means they have been prewashed and preshrunk without any chemicals.
