Linen, known for its breathable fibre exudes its utmost elegance that requires no complexity in design. It wants to be simple, it wants to stand out. Lignan, a natural resin found in linen fiber, helps prevent bacterial growth and keep linen odor free. The linen fibers are hollow, making them excellent fabrics for moving moisture and air. They feel cool in the summer and retain warm air in the winter. This fabric ages beautifully. In time, comfort revolves around you.
