Why choose linen curtains for your home?

What is linen fabric?

Linen is a fabric that has been used for centuries to create garments and home furnishings, it’s a natural fabric woven from the fibres of the flax plant, these natural fibres give the distinct quality and texture that is soft and smooth to touch. Linen is lint free and laborious to manufacture but creates heavy duty durable fabric which gets softer with use.

Making linen does not use as many resources as producing other fabrics, nor does it leave behind as many harmful by-products, offering you an Eco alternative to normal fabrics. Organic linen is sold in its natural colour and therefore does not go through the rigorous dyeing process that most fabrics do. This fabric is naturally moth resistant and is easy to care for when used as a window treatment.
