OUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH LINEN
Our aim is to create garments which are made to last, good to our planet and your skin. And that's why we've chosen linen for our creations.
We solely work with low-impact linen from Italy, the Czech Republic, Belgium and Austria.
All our fabrics are certified with the MASTERS OF LINEN®-mark, ensuring a responsible and sustainable production (no soil irrigation, no GMO, zero waste no carbon sink and field retting) on European soil and a lower carbon footprint.
THE BENEFITS OF LINEN
1. IT'S GOOD TO OUR PLANET
Linen is made of flax - and some say it's the cactus of all textile plants. Flax is a cute, blue and very easy-going flower that loves dry soil and grows on marginal land (hence, growing linen doesn't compromise growing food!). It's a very sturdy plant that happily grows with rain water and prospers without needing pesticides.
Plus, flax naturally grows in Europe which allows us to keep our carbon footprint low due to shorter transportation routes.
2. IT'S MADE TO LAST
Linen is one of the oldest textiles in the world, appreciated for thousands of years for its durability, breathability and luxurious feel.
It also gets softer with time - handle your linen piece with care and it will reward you with its temperature-regulating, antibacterial and hypoallergenic features.
3. IT'S TEMPERATURE-REGULATING
You may have heard that linen is the perfect holiday companion as it keeps you cool during hot summer days while absorbing water without making you feel damp ... but did you know that linen is actually temperature-regulating, meaning that it will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter?
By the way, that's why we have decided to create a few timeless coats and two-pieces ...
4. IT WRINKLES
We say: embrace wrinkles. We find it charming that linen is an elegant excuse to avoiding ironing. Be imperfectly perfect.
5. IT'S ZERO-WASTE
Not only does linen biodegrade within as little as two weeks (in the right conditions), but it's also a zero-waste product as all parts of the flax plant can be used. Whilst the fibers are turned into textiles for interior or clothing or paper, the flax seeds - which are in fact linseeds - can be used in the kitchen to make vegetable oils or bread or can be sprinkled over your muesli for an energy boost.
