Linen is environmentally friendly as the whole flax plant can be used, leaving no waste. Flax grows naturally and requires less water and fewer pesticides than cotton, making it a more eco-friendly fabric. Because it is a natural fibre, flax linen is recyclable and biodegrade.
It is resistant to bacteria and fungus as well as helpful in diminishing a number of allergic reactions. Linen does not accumulate static electricity and it is excellent in protecting against chemically aggressive medium, noise and dust.
It is thought to be UV protectant and may helps reduce fatigue and lifts spirit.
This may explain the popularity in making garments, bed linen and underwear!
