Linen & care

LINEN IN ANCIENT TIMES

Fabrics, made out of linen, are among the oldest. Egyptians have first discovered linen fabrics more than 8000 years ago. Linen fabric was considered to be holy and was used during prayers and sacrifices and for mummifying of Egypt Pharaohs.

During Renaissance linen became a sign of luxury, the aristocrats used to decorate their tables with linen items, also they used linen items for personal hygiene.

Lithuanian ancient people considered flax the holy plant, our forefathers believed that flax had a special power for fighting against the devils, witches and other evil spirits, there are many Lithuanian folk songs about flax and linen.

ABOUT LINEN

Linen is a nice, elegant, long lasting and steady natural material.

Linen is useful for skin, because it allows skin to breath, it cools in summer and warms up when it‘s cold. Linen doesn‘t cause any allergic reactions, it is antistatic and doesn’t accumulate the sediments of dirt, soap and lime settlings.

It‘s scientifically proven, that if you choose linen sheets, you will sleep better.

Linen is very strong (about 2-3 times stronger than cotton), has good wearing properties, and perfectly absorbs humidity.

It‘s easy to wash linen fabrics and they get dry very fast.

Linen is ecologic. All items, manufactured from linen, biologically decay.
