It takes 1/5 the energy and water to cultivate and process flax into linen fabric.
Linen is 40 times more absorbent than cotton and dries faster.
The special qualities of linen are
Anti-moth- you can pass on the fabric as an heirloom
Antiseptic – Linen has been used to cover wounds; resistant to bacteria and fungus
No lint – wipes glassware with no streak
Linen should be rolled when stored as it will memorize a crease
The tensile of linen fabric three times stronger than cotton; three times stronger than wool
The more linen is washed, the softer it becomes.
Natural silica in flax fiber protects linen against rotting…that it why mummies that were wrapped in linen are still protected by their covering.
MATERIAL 100% Belgian Linen
CARE Machine washable in cool water. Line dry. Medium iron (with steam) if needed. Belgian linen air dries easily and will not pill.
We are proud to introduce Thieffry, a French linen line, family run business since 1837. Produced in Roubaix near the border of Belgium, known as the Flanders. Flax is cultivated in France, Belgium and parts of the Netherlands then harvested and processed with adherence to tradition and craftsmanship using five times less energy and water than cotton.
The linen fabric is more absorbent and air-dries easily. It is lint-free, does not pill, is naturally repellent to mold and moths, gets softer as you use it, is non-static and non allergenic.
Real Belgian linen is a timeless product and we're happy to bring this line to you.
