Linen is a natural fiber, made from the stalk of the flax plant. It is regarded in all over the world as the best quality fabric. Linen have long favoured for their sheeting because of its amazing natural properties. It softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable and lasts decades when cared for correctly. Vintage linen is very desirable it’s soft and the feeling is very hard to replicate by any mechanical process.
Linen was the first fiber used to weave fabric and dates back over 8,000 years. It was first used by Mediterranean civilizations and was then quickly adopted by Europe where it reached high popularity during the medieval times. It was the most readily available fabric and remained the most popular even after the introduction of cotton fabrics by the Arabs during the 1300’s.
Linen remained the fabric of choice until the 18th Century during the Industrial Revolution, when the introduction of spinning machines and the large plantations of North America’s ‘Upland Cotton’ became much more affordable than the traditional linen techniques.
Now because of the laborious time it takes to produce linen yarn, and the manual processes that have to be undertaken, linen has become a higher priced commodity, and considered among many to be a ‘luxury’ fabric.
