This fabric consists of 55% linen and 45% viscose. Linen is made from flax, a plant that grows really well in our low lands, and of which every part is used. The treatment of the plant is based almost entirely upon the sun, rain and wind. This makes it a natural fibre that is very environmentally friendly. Viscose is made by treating wood or cotton cellulose with chemicals, after which the obtained solution is spun into yarn.
This combinationfabric feels nice and sturdy and yet supple. The structure is a bit rough, but the fabric itself still feels soft. Due to the addition of viscose the fabric doesn’t wrinkle as quickly as pure linen. It’s a robust fabric that breaths, doesn’t lint, and is ideal for the warmer months. The five colours are all mixed, accentuating the natural character of the fabric.
In order to give your garment a long life, it’s important to pay attention to the washing process: To start with, only wash clothing when it’s dirty. Always sort your laundry by type of fabric and colour. Use the right laundry detergent and the right amount. Don’t stuff your machine with too much laundry. Turn your clothes inside out (also for ironing). Avoid the tumble-drier if possible, it uses a lot of energy and is generally not good for you clothes.
This combination fabric is easy to maintain. Wash it at maximum 40° on a normal program, but don’t dry it in the tumble-drier. It’s best to shape and smoothen it before hanging it to dry, this makes the ironing easier. You can iron the garment on a hot temperature, and preferably while it’s still a bit humid.
