Linen fabrics

Shop online by the metre our premium quality Italian linen and linen-blend fabric for dressmaking and fashion.

Linen is a natural fiber made from the stalk of a flax plant. It was the first fiber used to weave fabric and dates back over 8,000 years. It was considered a symbol of purity, light and wealth.

Characteristics of linen

Carachterized by natural irregularities, linen has exceptional properties: it softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable, has a high moisture absorbency, which make it ideal for wearing next to the skin; its fibres are anti-static and hypoallergenic.

Flax is also an environmentally sustainable fiber as the plants require limited use of herbicides, fertilisers and pesticides and limited use of water.

Western Europe is the world's largest producer of flax fiber: France, Belgium and the Netherlands account for 80% of production.
