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. To this day, the techniques of growing, harvesting and processing are still the subject of a continuous evolution that makes linen a modern and unique 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 body. Its main features are its softness, the immediate absorption and evaporation of liquids, as well as the fast elimination of heat and moisture.
