The benefits of linen:

An ancient fiber with the future in mind.

As a preface to this blog post, let’s take a moment to start at the very beginning. While evidence is scant from prehistoric times, it appears that Neolithic peoples in Europe were making textiles from linen as long as 36.000 years ago. Therefore, linen is one of the longest-produced textiles, and its history may stretch back even farther than the most ancient evidence that modern archaeology has uncovered.

Linen is an ancient fiber that has been used for thousands of years, but it's still loved today thanks to its benefit for the skin and for the planet.

In fact, linen is a strong and breathable fiber that's fresh enough to be comfortable against your skin, and sturdy enough to hold up well under repeated wear. It's also thermoregulating and easily absorbs moisture, so it feels dry and cool all day long.

Linen's hypoallergenic properties are due to its natural lignin and cellulose content, which means that it's less likely to irritate sensitive skin. Linen is an ancient fiber that has been used for thousands of years, but it's still loved today thanks to its benefit for the skin and for the planet.
