Linen is the oldest and most fascinating fibre, it was widely grown by Egyptians, Babylonians, Phoenicians and other peoples of the Middle East. The production, processing and use of linen are widely documented in tombs, pyramids, and other Egyptian monuments. White linen was a symbol of divine purity. Even today the techniques of linen growing, harvesting and processing are in constant evolution. This makes linen a unique and modern fabric

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.
