SIMPLY THE BEST
Once you discover more about linen, anything made of it becomes your "must have" goods in your kitchen and home from napkins to towels, tablecloths to pillows! This is exactly what happens! Let us explain why?
- Linen is eco-friendly! It is made of fibers sourced from the stems of flax plants. Flax fibers are up to three times stronger than cotton! It is also known one of the strongest natural fiber in the world which makes linen super durable and contributes its’ longevity.
- The flax plant does not require much energy or water resources to produce and the entire plant used to make linen, leaving no waste footprint. (The little waste with flax; other part of the plant, like the seeds, can be used to produce linseed oil or flax seeds for consumption)
- Linen is known for its absorbency; it can absorb up to 20% to 35% of its weigh in moisture and dry faster. It is naturally moth resistant.
- Linen is a breathable fabric which you feel it at every touch! It feels rough initially, but by time, use and repeated washing, linen becomes softer and even more absorbent.
- Linen fabric usually has natural slubs which gives its volume and unique texture on it. The natural wrinkles creates the distinction between the cozy yet luxury look of linen and all other textiles. It makes every meal and gathering special!
And yes, we love linen! Enjoy!

HOW TO IRON LINEN
Linen will always have natural wrinkles after washing. This gives the rustic and modern look to your linen. No need to iron! You can flat and smooth your towel by shaking it with your hands. If you would like to have it pressed, use low temperature iron while it’s still damp. Use a damp tower to overlay on linen when pressing a dry linen.
