How do you combine beauty, comfort, and creativity in textiles with environmental and social constraints?
The answer is premium quality European flax fiber which is high performance, and is used in fashion, lifestyle and home.
The flax plant is the origin of linen textiles, and has been around since the time of the Pharaohs. We still find evidence of linen fabrics in Egyptian tombs that date from 1000 BCE and are still fairly intact. Talk about longevity!
Linen bedding styles run from rustic chic (DONATELLA
by Signoria Di Firenze), timeless elegance (FIORDILINO
by Quagliotti) and sophisticated moderne (PUROLINO
by Christian Fischbacher). It's intrinsic chic is appreciated by the well traveled, sophisticated consumer.
Linen is essential in decorating. Because you can keep the same interior for decades, this timeless fiber is a no-brainer. You will find brilliantly colored linen fabrics at Ligne Roset, B&B Italia, Christian Fischbacher, Zimmer + Rohde to name a few.
Fashionistas will find 100% linen with such luxury brands such as Balmain, Armani, Chanel, Etro, Ermenegildo Zegna, Celine, Valentino, Balenciaga, Fendi, and many more. Light and airy, linen is much stronger than its delicate appearance might suggest. Because the fiber gets softer with repeated washing, linen clothes create a natural and soft silhouette. They also keep you cool in hot, sticky climates (We know this because we live in sunny Florida).
Linen has a timeless aesthetic, and has proven to be incredibly resistant. Whether dyed, printed or left in it's natural state, linen has never really gone out of fashion.
