Ecological and easy
to care, flax is a fiber
with multiple qualities

To crease
or not to crease?

• Designers have a wide range of linen fabrics to choose from, each with different creasing behaviors: classic plain weave, patterend weaves (such as a twill), knitted linen, stretch linen…

• Wrinkle-resistant finishes are used on fabrics to reduce the wrinkled effect.

• Washed linen (pre-washed with fabric softeners) does not need ironing and its irregular effects are used in fashion for a casual look and for home textiles for its decorative effect.

Easy to care for

• Linen fabrics are machine washable.

• 90° for white linen, 40° or 60°C for colours.

• Linen is easy to iron: preferably when the fabric is still damp and inside out.

• Avoid extensive spinning and tumble drying.

• Linen does not fluff or deform, thanks to its very structure: linen consists of long fibers, which is not the case with other natural fibers.

• It is possible to use oxygen-based bleach.
