I source my Oeko Tex certified linen fabrics from Europe. Linen is known for its low environmental impact as it is grown without the need for much extra water and very few pesticides. It can also be grown in relatively poor soil conditions. Linen is also fully biodegradable as well as hypoallergenic & highly breathable.
The fibres within linen can become damaged over time if washed with a biological detergent- a natural detergent such as Bio-D is preferable. Linen should be ironed on the reverse side.
You may notice tiny 'slubs' in items made of linen which are not faults but rather characteristics of the fibre. The products made from washed linen are designed to have a more casual look and get softer over time through washing & wearing. I would suggest washing dark fabrics separately particularly for the first few washes. Always test stain removers on an inconspicuous area before using them.
The tencel fabric I use is made from wood pulp which is sustainably harvested from traceable tree farms. It’s construction requires a lot less energy than cotton & it is highly breathable and biodegradable.
