Why did we choose linen instead of cotton?

Manufacturing
When it comes to production, linen is much more sustainable than cotton. The flax plant requires significantly less water to produce than the same amount of cotton. In flax, natural rainfall is sufficient for plant growth and no additional irrigation is required.


Flax is very undemanding and thrives even on poor soil, while cotton requires large areas of cultivation with good soil. In addition, flax cultivation uses 5 times fewer (or no) pesticides and fertilizers than cotton cultivation because flax is not as vulnerable. Unlike flax, cotton is grown in distant locations, requiring transportation and associated emissions.
Linen is processed mechanically and no chemicals are needed, while conventional cotton uses a lot of chemicals.
Linen is far better than cotton in terms of both emissions and chemical use.


Characteristics
Linen is much more durable and stable than cotton because the flax fiber itself is extremely tear-resistant. As a result, linen products have a long lifespan. Cotton products wear out over the years and lose their shape after several washes. On the other hand, linen products become more beautiful with every wash.


Unlike cotton, linen is antibacterial and dirt-repellent. Thanks to its bacteriostatic and water-binding properties, linen releases very little moisture and prevents the development of bacteria, making it naturally germicidal and hygienic. The material even neutralizes odors. Linen is also hypoallergenic and therefore ideal for allergy sufferers and sensitive skin.


Linen is also more breathable than cotton and has a very high water absorption capacity. A linen fabric can absorb up to 35% moisture and exchange it very quickly with the environment. This makes it the perfect material for a towel.


Buying linen products is definitely more expensive than buying cotton products, and that's how it has to be. This is due to the fact that linen is much more complex to process because all processes and work steps are mechanical and therefore time- and cost-intensive.

But for the additional price you get a sustainable product that lasts much longer and is easier to use in everyday life.
