BENEFITS OF PURE LINEN
What is Pure Linen?
Pure Linen is a natural fibre, made from the stalk of the flax plant.
It is regarded in Europe as the best quality fabric.
Europeans have long favoured linen for their sheeting because of its amazing properties.
It softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable and can last for decades when cared for correctly.
It is not uncommon that European families will pass linen sheets on to the younger generation as a family heirloom.
Vintage linen is very desirable, it’s soft and the feeling is very hard to replicate by any mechanical process.
Anyone that has trawled the antique shops of Italy would know that antique linen bedding is a highly prized and expensive commodity.
