What is Linen?

When it comes to natural fabrics, nothing can quite compare to linen.
Linen is crafted from the fine fibers of the flax plant, resulting in a luxurious material that is also known for being strong, long enduring, and breathable. Because linen is produced from the entire flax plant, linen production is eco-friendly, also requiring little water and pesticides to grow. This makes 100% linen fabric one of the most sustainable textiles, with a much lower environmental impact than cotton and other materials.

Linen fabric can come in many different colors and is considered one of the most luxurious natural fabrics. While many expect linen to feel rough on the skin because of its textured appearance, they are often left pleasantly surprised by how soft linen feels after pre-washed process, a fabric that is especially gentle on those with sensitive skin.
Ideal for bedding because it is durable, soft, and quick to dry, many households also appreciate the virtues of linen fabric in every room of their home, from the bedroom, the dining room, to the living spaces.

What Makes Linen Bedding the Best

100% linen bedding differs from other traditional bedding materials in several ways, holding key virtues that many households and families love in their homes.
Linen is the fabric of choice for sleepers who want an organic and all-natural fabric. It is also the optimal choice for eco-conscious shoppers who do not wish to sleep on uncomfortable, unsustainable, and skin-irritating synthetic fabrics.
Linen's charmingly rumpled appearance lends plenty of casual grace to the bedroom as it is a material that wrinkles easily. It is both laid back and luxurious, crisp to the touch in the beginning, but with time and wear, linen becomes soft and supple. Often described as a fabric with a personality of its own, linen is versatile and looks great with any home interior, whether in rustic-style bedrooms, minimalist spaces, and in traditional, classic-style bedrooms.
Nothing looks quite as elegant or as inviting as an all-linen bedscape, and we are sure you’ll agree.
Because of the natural benefits of pure linen, it’s no surprise that people who already use linen bedding never desire to switch to anything else. Linen is a fabric with many great natural properties that suit the demands of anyone who wishes to sleep and live comfortably.
