Linen is made from the flax plant and is one of the oldest cultivated crops. Linen is cool, breathable, and the textiles made from it have a long life. Especially in the summer, linen wears wonderfully due to its natural properties. The more you use it, the softer and stronger it gets. Linen is less elastic than, for example, cotton and will therefore crease faster. But that is precisely one of the charming characteristics of linen.
