Since the release of this beautiful linen shirt at LEGIO GLORIA, if you’ve wondered about the origins of linen as a material, something you should know first hand, is that it’s one of the best textiles ever to suit on the human skin. Linen textile is made out of fibers of the flax plant.
Suiting perfectly for sensitive skin.
Garments can be worn 24/7 because skin is allowed to breathe and doesn’t block pores.
Due to the fabric’s structure, the touch on skin improves blood circulation and relieves stress especially in the evenings.
Reduces heat in both wet and dry environments, so it adjusts to the environment’s temperature and hugs your body.
Absorbs moisture and dries quickly.
The fiber prevents inflammation and fungus on skin, flax was used to cover wounds since ancient times.
The linen fiber does not produce static energy, hence garments can stay clean for longer.
With a 30% more strength than cotton, linen fibers allow for a large number of washes without losing any of its properties, hence making for a long-lasting garment.
Traditionally, the process of production for linen was a little slower, hand-driven, and part of trade between households.
Nowadays, the production of flax has made it easier, however until not long ago flax was still being managed manually due to its particularity.
The thread used in linen garments comes from the stem of the flax plant. Housewives used an array of self-made tools to knead the stems before starting a process of studding in order to slide the entire length of the stems resulting in long fibers ready to be cleaned.
Due to the durability of this fiber in particular, navy services have used the thread of linen in rope manufacturing!
