Linen is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant. It is very strong and absorbent, and dries faster than cotton. Because of these properties, linen is comfortable to wear in hot weather and is valued for use in garments. It also has other distinctive characteristics, notably its tendency to wrinkle.
Linen is a fabric used widely in the fashion industry and is made of fibers that are procured from the flax plant (also known as linseed). This fabric is known for being extremely sturdy, durable as well as highly absorbent, which is why is it used not just to create clothes but also to make towels, tablecloths, bags, aprons, napkins and cushion covers. Linen, like most other fabrics, can be embroidered on or printed on to create different patterns or designs as per the creative vision of the designer working with it.
Linen is basically a bast fiber, which means that this is a fiber that is obtained from the inner section of the bark of the plant (also known as the phloem) which is why is has superior tensile strength when compared to other fabrics. In order to get the longest fibers (as these determine the overall quality of the fabric), flax plants are harvested by hand or the stalk of the plant is cut close to the roots. The fibers are then pulled away from the stalk and this is done through a process known as retting wherein bacteria is used to decompose the natural pectin that acts as an adhesive and binds the fibers together.
