100% French Linen
This garment has been crafted from 100% French Linen, a natural fibre from flax grown in the northern regions of France. Linen is a light, breathable fabric that is durable and strong. It wrinkles easily which is part of its appeal, it is easy to care for and becomes softer with age and wear.
Flax is a highly productive crop requiring minimal water, herbicides or pesticides to grow, making it a better environmental choice than many other natural fibres, such as conventionally grown cotton.
Linen has a beautiful texture with knotted fibres called slubs. This is a feature of the fabric that occurs due to the fibre's natural properties, the weaving process creates a tactile look and feel.
This garment has a surface print and as the ink is applied to the linen, the natural slubs will move and may lift. This creates speckled variations in the print appearance which vary from garment to garment making each piece unique. Linen is beautiful to wear and becomes softer with age and over time the colour of the print will naturally fade.
