The consumer properties of linen fabrics and products made from them are truly unique: naturalness and environmental friendliness, wear resistance and strength, breathability and hygroscopicity, high thermal conductivity, minimal electrification, antiseptic properties. Sufficient air permeability, hygroscopicity and moisture capacity ensure quick removal of heat and moisture from the human body. The presence of even a small amount of linen fiber (up to 10%) completely eliminates the electrification of the fabric.
It prevents a number of diseases, neither bacteria nor fungus can get along with it. This absolutely environmentally friendly fabric is a natural antiseptic.
Flax contributes to more intensive blood circulation, stimulation of the body and reduction of its fatigue.

Linen does not clog pores and provides good ventilation for the skin.
Psychotherapists are convinced that flax fibers protect a person from depression, neuroses, and mental disorders. Therefore, flax is relevant right now, in times of constant stress.
Linen fabrics absorb moisture better than cotton and dry faster. Flax is a good conductor of heat and contains very highly organized cellulose, which provides the strength (the breaking load of linen fabrics is 2 times higher than that of cotton), resistance to abrasion (this indicator is 3.5 times higher than that of cotton fabrics), resistance to acid hydrolysis and heat resistance
Linen cloth is less dirty, it needs to be washed less often, which increases its service life. In the process of wearing and washing, unlike cotton canvas, it does not turn yellow but retains its freshness and whiteness.
Now flax is made softened, so all the legends about this material can be forgotten. Caring for it is much easier than decades ago.
Linen, like all natural materials, shrinks from 2 to 9%, so bed linen is sewn taking into account the previous shrinkage (the fabric is washed before cutting), and about 5 cm is added by all measures for subsequent shrinkage of the fabric (after 3-4 washes, the size becomes as accurate as possible).
Care is quite simple - wash at a temperature of 30-40 degrees, without spinning or in a delicate mode. When washing, we recommend not to use bleaching agents.
Iron in a damp state, with steam. At the moment, there is a trend in the world for crumpled linen to emphasize its texture and heterogeneity, so many people do not iron it. It gets softer with each wash.

Is it hard to sleep on linen and are clothes made of it hard?
Many people who are not familiar with linen think that bedding made from this material is not a good idea because it will be hard to sleep on. These are stereotypes that came to us from the Soviet Union, when linen came from grandmothers, it had to be washed by hand, and it is very hard, then boiled or bleached, dried, and ironed with difficulty.
But now you can forget about all that!
Thanks to modern technologies, linen has become softened, especially for bed linen and clothes, it can easily be washed in a washing machine - an automatic machine, following only a couple of recommendations, linen immediately has very interesting and original colors, and most importantly - thanks to the fashion for linen, it is not necessary to iron!
All over the world, flax is especially left crumpled to emphasize its texture and naturalness. It looks very beautiful crumpled and uneven.
Therefore, clothes and textiles made of linen are the best choice!
Why do linen products have such a price?
Many people are frankly surprised when they learn about the cost of linen products. It seems high and not everyone understands why the price is so and how linen is so different from cotton or other materials. We have already written several times about what makes flax better, but not yet about the price.
The fact is that the cost price of any linen product is already high enough, because a meter of fabric is quite expensive, and a set of bed linen takes about 8-10 meters of fabric, so the price is usually not small. In particular, the fabric is so expensive because of the complex and expensive technology of obtaining and processing flax, and the multitude of biological and chemical processes used in this process, so linen fabrics are more expensive than cotton and even more so than synthetic ones. Flax is difficult to grow and process.
According to scientific research, he feels most comfortable in the lands of Belarus, where there is a humid climate, moderate heat, and sun. The fabric from different regions is very different to the touch, although it retains its qualities.
In our products, we use flax and cotton OEKO-TEX Standard 100 quality certificated.
Linen and other fabrics are used in different densities and textures depending on the product.
The fabric is pre-treated and softened.
