Linen is a natural textile fibre from the herbaceous flax plant native to Egypt.

This fibre is extracted from the stem, which can grow up to one metre tall. The flax plant has a short-lived blue and pink flower. Linen is 70% cellulose. It is great for allergies, it absorbs moisture and it allows the skin to breathe, making it excellent for summer clothing, bed sheets, table cloths, bath towels and handkerchiefs.

It is very resilient, especially when wet. It can be washed many times and stay looking nice.

White linen clothing should be machine washed at 60 °C, colours at lower temperatures and preferably on delicate cycles.
