oneself by linen at home, in the life, is a privilege. Linen is a

- timeless fashion

The Linen fibre is straight, quite stiff and has lustre. Its smooth
surface makes dirt not hang on to it very well. Linen has a good
ability to keep moisture and is stronger wet than dry. Linen has not as
good strength to abrasion as cotton. It also can wrinkle more than
cotton. But it is very pleasant to wear and is not as hard to nature
growing and producing as cotton.

and beautiful quality.

not as hard to the nature growing and producing as conventional cotton.
The very best is of course organic grown and produced materials, and
compared by social commitments to secure safety and salaries to live on.
