Linen as a Material
Flax is one of the world's oldest crops and can be used to make fiber and various oils, among other things. Flax cultivation actually peaked in Finland in the 18th century. This is due to the fact that use of man-made fibers momentarily reduced flax cultivation. But now worldwide production is increasing again as the value and popularity of natural fibers continues to rise. Linen fiber is widely used in clothing and accessories as these linen accesssories and clothing are especially good for hot weather. In addition, flax is also a very ecological choice for the sustainability conscious as a material during its cultivation absorbs carbon dioxide emissions from the air and mentains the healthy diveristy of the ecosystem where planted. In the textile production of linen, all aspeects of the flax plant can be fully utilized and since it is also completely biodegradable material no waste of the precious flax material is produced in the production of the linen.

Linen is durable, when cared for correctly
Linen keeps for many years if not washed too often with a washer or dryer because both maschines lead to unnecessary agressive linen fiber loss. The long washing program and, for example, tumble drying the linen scarf thins and loosens the fiber from its weave. Thus, the best way for linen to be washed would be to only hand wash and air dry the product. It is also important to note that linen can easily get dents and streches when it dries as it is a delicate wringkle material. Thus, you can either incorporate this look into your own bohemian style as is or alternatively iron a scarf whenever needed.
Linen itself is a wonderful natural material, the benefits of which stand out particularly in our world of accessories. The fabric is resistant to abrasion and is highly breathable and moisture absorbent. Linen repels dirt, cleans easily and improves in use over years.
