Fabric Focus: Linen
23 Aug, 2022
We love styling our homes with fabrics made from natural and sustainable fibres. The casual beauty of pure linen bedding and homeware will create relaxed and comfortable spaces to enjoy living in. Linen looks good, feels even better and is a planet friendly choice for your home. Read on to learn more about one of our favourite fabrics, why it’s sustainable and discover beautiful linen pieces for your bed.
Why Choose Linen?
Linen is a sustainable fabric choice for your bedding, homeware and clothing. This is because linen is a pure natural fabric that requires little water for its production and is completely biodegradable. Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibres that grown inside the leaves of the flax plant. The whole plant is used in the linen making process, creating minimal wastage during production. Unless it’s particularly hot and dry, flax plants need little watering compared to growing cotton. Due to the strength and durability of flax linen fibres, linen fabric creates bedding and clothing which can last a lifetime.
Choose bedding made from pure linen to enjoy a beautiful and comfy place to sleep, relax and feel good about your reducing your impact on the environment.
Sleep Blissfully in Linen
For the best nights’ sleep, bedding should be breathable, soft and comfortable, so you can regulate your body temperature for a rejuvenating slumber. Linen fabric is woven using a looser weave which allows air to circulate more freely and it has excellent moisture absorbing properties. This results in bedding that will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, making linen perfect for sleeping in every season. And the more you launder your linen, the softer and more comfortable the fabric will become. For timeless and enduring style, choose linen bedding for a relaxed look and feel that will never date.
