The Nature of Linen

As we have come to realize the importance of SUSTAINABILITY, we loved Linen for all the right reasons and today it is one of the most environmentally friendly textiles.

When describing Linen the words cool, organic, sophisticated, comfortable and wrinkles come to mind.   The natural feel is what makes Linen so attractive that the tendency to wrinkle has to be appreciated for the authenticity of the material; in addition to the fact that after silk, it is considered one of the strongest and most durable fabrications.

Made from flax fibers, the plant has been cultivated for over 6000 years.   Linen was one of the first plants domesticated by humans and it is rooted in tradition as the natural fabric that innovation has not been able to reinvent to such a level of perfection and range of quality.   Linen is not only durable and attractive, it is simply perfect to wear all year round; cool in the summer and warm in the winter due to the breathability of the fabric. Since it is derived from the cellulose-based fibers of the flax plant, Linen is naturally hypoallergenic.

Taking care of Linen garments is straightforward and they will age well, even after many washes, if simple care instructions are followed.

Do not use hot water as it weakens the fabric.

Do not twist the linen garment or use bleach as these damage the fibers

Dry on low heat and remove while still damp and iron at medium-hot setting.

Linen is one of the most environmentally friendly textiles available due to the method in which flax is grown. Very little water is required so farmers do not need to irrigate or fertilize during the growth process. Fewer pesticides are required to ensure the health of the crops and other parts of the plants, such as its seeds can be used to produce oil and flax seed for consumption. Choose Linen.

Our artisanal production and design process lends itself to a summer of comfort and style wearing MATTHILDUR Linen. From our dresses to our pants and blazers, our Linen will bring a smile to your face and style to your being.
