The Linen we use in our shirts is cultivated in Normandy, where favourable conditions and generations of knowledge gives life to the most precious linen of the world. Linen is a fibre which is European by history and tradition.
The nature, composition and architecture of the fibres give the flax excellent properties; maximum resistance, high capacity to absorb humidity, insulating and thermo-regulating properties, non-allergenic characteristics.
The flax requires no additional irrigation on top of what the atmosphere provides, making it a self sufficient and very environmentally conscious choice. There is also no wastage in the weaving process as the entire plant may be used.
