Derived from the flax plant, linen is noted for its strength, its absorbent nature and, the ability to keep the wearer cool even in the harshest heat. A sustainable fabric, linen has a history dating back to over 6000 years. Linen is naturally anti-bacterial which makes it precious both as a fabric and a medical aid such as bandage. Its non-elastic nature makes it prone to wrinkling naturally, but that essentially is the beauty of the fabric. For golfing to sailing, vacationing and attending brunches/high teas, fashionistas and nature lovers around the world have invariably chosen linen to impart that casual yet statement look.
