WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE MATERIALS THAT BREATHE?
Clothing and bedding is something that is the closest to your body and your skin. Since skin is your largest organ it is very exposed to materials you wear and sleep on. Probably you’ve already experienced materials that make you sweat and obtain odor, make your skin feel itchy or irritated... And there is even more to it: some materials can actually be dangerous for your health because of the risk of absorbing harmful substances into your skin. That’s why it’s so important to choose breathable materials which are good for your skin, your comfort and health. This way you increase the quality of your everyday, and with that, the quality of your life :)
Breathable materials such as silk and linen are a great step in self-care: not only because they are comfortable, but because they are good for your skin and health. Here are some of linen’s amazing characteristics:
It is a natural, environmentally friendly, recyclable and biodegradable material. It is produced from flax plants, which can grow in poor soil and require very little water. Around the world there is way too much textile waste which has negative effects on the earth and our health. When choosing linen, you are contributing to solve this problem.
Linen offers great breathability and has natural temperature-regulating properties. It seems almost magical how it helps to make you cool in the heat and warm in the cold.
Linen is hypoallergenic and antibacterial, because it releases moisture quickly so there is no “perfect” environment for bacteria and microbes, which are bred in moisture. Your skin will love it, because it won’t cause redness, irritation or itching.
Linen is usually densely woven and this makes it more resistant to UV rays. Choosing lighter colors for summer is recommended, as harmful UV rays do not penetrate light colors as much as dark ones.
Another great thing about linen is that you can style it for all types of occasions, not only for relaxed summer days! Modern linen clothing offers various great looks for work, meetings, celebrations - anything you need to look & feel good.
Linen is also very durable, easy to take care for and it doesn’t stretch or lose color. It’s totally worth the investment, don’t you agree?
