A deal not to be missed

Linen is the oldest and most fascinating fibre, it was widely grown by Egyptians, Babylonians, Phoenicians and other people of the Middle East.
Still today linen is grown both to harvest seeds and to produce a very precious, soft, flexible and strong fibre.
Since it is a natural fibre, it has hypoallergenic characteristics and promotes the well-being of the organism. Its main features are its softness, the immediate absorption and evaporation of liquids, as well as the fast elimination of heat and moisture.
