Linen is a natural fabric made from the flax plant. The plant grows in cold and rainy climates. It’s naturally resistant to many diseases and doesn’t require the use of pesticides. Always choose linen instead of cotton, when possible, as growing cotton is a process that requires a lot of water and chemical usage. Cotton is also grown in warmer climates, with the fabric ending up travelling halfway across the globe. Learn more about linen here.
Linen clothes are comfortable to wear, and when properly cared for they will last for years. Linen is also great for people with allergies, as it’s naturally dust repellant.
