What is Linen? [read more]

Linen is a Natural, cellulosic fibre made from the stem of the flax plant, one of the oldest plants and oldest textiles in human history.

“We regard Linen as the best quality fabric because…” [read more]

“The stiffer yarn with natural slubs offers the finished garment a unique rich texture that adds dimension to any outfit. The fabric itself is also more lustrous (brighter & slightly silky) and dyes very well. And it is famous for its antibacterial properties.”

Linen is highly absorbent and dries quickly wicking moisture away from your skin – offering exceptional breathability.

Constructed out of hollow fibres, linen acts as a natural insulator – keeping you cool in the summertime and warm in the dead of winter.

The strong flax fibres also make it extremely durable and more winter ready.

Linen softens the more it is used and washed and can last decades when cared for correctly.

 

What is Rayon? [read more]

Rayon Fabric is made from artificial silk and not classified as either entirely synthetic or entirely natural since it is made from highly processed plant materials.

‘We often choose to work with Rayon because… [read more]

Rayon is a great option if you are looking for a lightweight material with a nice drape, a lustrous finish, and a soft feel that is easy to dye. We love it because it conveys luxury at a slightly lower price point.’

As a plant-based fibre, Rayon is not inherently toxic or polluting. Unlike polyester, Rayon is highly absorbent & highly breathable – ideal for cool summer dresses & high-quality jerseys where breathability is essential for ease. Rayon also prevents sweat marks on your shirt by absorbing it into tiny micropores in the fibres themselves – locking it away.

 

How to care for my Linen Rayon garment? [read more]

Most Linen Rayon products are machine washable at no more than 20C, and because Linen Rayon is so quick to dry there’s usually no need to tumble dry. We recommend hanging the product straight from the machine, stretching it back into position and leaving it to finish. No need for ironing as creases and wrinkles is a part of the character of linen.’

 

Does Linen Rayon shrink?  [read more]

‘Linen Rayon tends to shrink. It is a natural fabric – you should expect your Linen Rayon garment to shrink a bit after the first wash.’

 

Why are Linen Rayon clothing so expensive? [read more]

‘Linen is expensive because harvesting linen and turning it into fibre is a much longer and more difficult process than with other fabrics. Unlike other plants, the flax plant cannot be mowed, but must be pulled up by the roots.

Furthermore, the inelasticity of the strong flax fibre causes it to break easily in the production process pushing production costs up.’

‘Rayon is also no longer a cheap fabric as it is imported & subject to large duties, so clothes made from it can sometimes cost more than linen or cotton.’
