The type of fabric everyone recognizes, makes its comeback season after season and no one will ever get tired of… That must be linen! There is no quality more decisive for the appearance of a garment as linen. Linen has remained a favorite fabric throughout the years of its characteristic properties, it's comfort, durability and strength. But how is linen actually produced? How do you wear it, what are the advantages, how do you care for it and how do you ensure that it creases less? We give you the answers to the most frequently asked questions about linen.
Where does linen come from?
Linen is made from fibers derived from the flax plant. This strong plant requires little water and pesticides during the production process, which ensures that the production of linen can be pointed out as sustainable. Products made of pure flax are completely biodegradable or recyclable and because of its fiber strength, linen garments often last for years!
What are the advantages of linen?
Most women will answer that it's comfortably breezy to wear. Vegetable materials are known for their cooling and highly absorbent properties, a distinct advantage for Summer clothing. However, if you ask us? We would say that linen garments offer that typical and natural looking texture we cannot compare with any other fabric. Furthermore, linen is a strong fabric with a high abrasion resistance which adds to the maintenance of a garment's fit - which is not a minor detail.
How do you care for linen?
During the first times of washing, colored linen can run out. Therefore, we advise to wash it the first couple of times separately and to use 1dl natural vinegar to keep its color optimal. Linen can be washed at a low temperature to a maximum of 40°C. Don't put linen items in the dryer and let them hang to dry in a shady environment to prevent shrinkage and discoloration.
How do you ensure that your linen garment creases less?
Where some believe that wrinkles are a sign of authenticity and high quality, others see it as the main downside of linen. To make sure linen stays wrinkle-free for a longer period of time, we recommend to iron the garment while it's still damp - without steam and on the inside of the fabric. Another way to make linen wrinkle-free - without using an iron - is by using The Laundress Crease Release spray. Even when wearing the garment, you can smooth out wrinkles.
How do you wear linen?
Linen is the perfect fabric to add contrast to your look and lends itself to combine effortlessly with all types of styles, silhouettes and qualities. When combining linen with distinctive fabrics as denim, leather or satin, linen balances your look and provides it with a natural and soft appeal. Please notice! Linen often runs about half a size when wearing. After washing, it regains its original shape.
