What makes linen a sustainable fabric?

We use certified linen for our gift wrap because it’s a wonderfully sustainable material (and it looks beautiful too).

Here are a few facts about linen and its eco-friendly properties:

  • Biodegradable - linen is made from natural flax fibres making it fully biodegradable.

  • No waste - the whole flax plant is used in production so nothing is wasted. Common by-products include flax seeds and linseed oil.

  • Energy efficient - linen production uses very little energy and water compared to other materials. Flax is the second most water-efficient fibre (after hemp).

  • Durability - linen is super durable, making it stronger and less likely to wear out than other materials - no disposable consumer culture here!

All of our linen comes from the EU and is OEKO-TEX® standard 100 certified. This means that it is free from harmful chemicals, making it kinder to the environment and safe for human use.
