Why Linen Is Better For The Environment

Your doona is a vegetable.

That’s right, linen is made from cellulosic fibres found inside the flax plant. Grown across the world, flax is a highly resistant crop that can be grown in poor soil, requires little watering or pesticides, and is one of the few fibres available in which almost every inch of plant is used in the meaningful production of products.

Whilst the body of the plant is used by the textiles industry, flax seeds can be found in your pantry as a high fibre ingredient, and flaxseed oil is a staple in any painter’s kit.

With use dating back to at least 8000BC, linen is one of the oldest fibres known to man.

Due to its natural structure, linen is three times stronger than cotton, and boasts both a higher abrasion resistance and a lower propensity to pill. As a result, well looked after linen can last generations and become heirloom pieces.
