Linen fabric is one of the oldest known fabrications used for clothing and one of the most luxe. It is also one of the most sustainable options available to us today.
At Fabrik we include Linen in every collection as a beautiful addition to a capsule wardrobe for many reasons.
Linen is super absorbent making it comfortable to wear. It will keep you cool in warm weather.It is also thermo-regulating fabric so a good choice for layering when the weather cools! Made from the flax plant which is one of the strongest fibres known, making it very durable and long lasting and a wise investment when planning your wardrobe. Linen can be grown with less water than other crops and in poorer soil and with no fertiliser, making this a great sustainable option. The fibre's strength directly contributes to the fabric's strength, making linen clothes very long-lasting. It has a lower environmental impact than cotton with the same breathable and highly absorbent properties. Linen is also naturally insect repelling! All our linen is dyed with Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) standard inks and dyes, which are free from chlorine bleach, toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, and aromatic solvents. Keeping our waterways clean and safe and giving you peace of mind. We choose timeless cuts and styles for our linen clothing to adhere to our slow fashion principles.
Our linen garments are sewn by our talented team in our sustainable studio.
Our 'Canvas to cloth' collection features local artist Ash Leslie's hand painted pieces, digitally printed onto a linen fabric using Oeko-Tex passport certified inks. By using the digital print process we save 60 litres of water per garment in production!
