    High Summer - Keeping Cool in Linen and Lace

    • Linen is one of the oldest and most environmentally sustainable fibres. It has undoubted ethical and aesthetic appeal. Derived from the flax plant, the second-most productive fibre crop, it is surpassed only by hemp. 
    • Linen flourishes organically, and in contrast to cotton, needs only rainwater to thrive.
    • Linen has strong hollow fibres with almost no elasticity. Its ability to absorb 20% of its weight in moisture makes it an ideal summer fabric.
