Organic cotton is produced using non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. As a result, organic cotton has a low impact on the environment – protecting soil fertility and water systems, and using significantly less resources. In order to preserve each fibre, organic cotton is handpicked, resulting in improved durability and softness. Although the current production of organic cotton accounts for less than 1% of global cotton, demand continues to increase each year. Today the production of organic cotton is monitored by certification authorities such as the Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS).
What is Linen
Linen yarn is woven from the fibres found inside the stem of the flax plant. The plant has a growing cycle of a mere 100 days, at which point it can be harvested. It is then left out to dry in a process called ‘retting’ (literally meaning rotting). This causes the stalks to ferment and dissolve so that the flax fibre can be separated from the rest of the plant. Thereafter it is rippled, dried, scutched, combed and spun before being dyed and woven.

Care For Linen
As a general rule, wash linen fabrics on a gentle cycle at 40°. Wash with like colours and avoid bleach. Warm iron while the fabric is still damp for best results. Linen prefers air-drying in the shade. Some of our items can be tumble dried at a low heat, but always check the label to be safe. Linen products age gracefully, becoming softer and more absorbent with each wash.
