Linen, a 100% ecological, sustainable and compostable fiber

For today’s post, here’s a slightly “technical article” in order to introduce you to a material that Aatise loves: Linen Flax is a plant that grows in Europe which then provides 80% of the production of flax worldwide. Additionally, did you know that France is one of the biggest producers?!

The best thing about this natural fiber is that it doesn’t require the use of pesticides or fertilizers and the plants are not genetically manipulated. In addition, very little water is required for cultivation. Now you know why we love linen so much!

The fiber passes through a whole series of natural and mechanical treatments: roasting, breaking and swinging, combing, spinning and weaving or knitting. After undergoing all of these, quite technical, steps, the garments made from linen are soft, light and durable because the linen fiber is extremely sturdy and resistant itself

If you're still not sure that a piece of linen is a must-have for your wardrobe, then let us tell you this: it is also a natural, biodegradable and compostable fiber! Convinced yet?
