Linen is a natural fabric that cools and absorbs sweat, which has many advantages.
1. Good heat dissipation: Flax fabrics are known as “natural air conditioners”. Flax is the only bundle fiber among natural fibers. Bundle fibers are formed by the adhesion of single flax cells with the aid of glue.
2. Moisture absorption and release: Flax has a natural hammer-like structure and a unique pectinic beveled pore structure. When it comes into contact with the skin, it produces pores, which can help the skin wick away sweat and clean the skin.
3. Health care and antibacterial: Scientific experiments have proved that the antibacterial rate of flax against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans and other international standard strains can reach over 65%, and the antibacterial rate against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus beads is over 90%.

The history of linen: highlight the luxury and elegance of linen.
Linen is made of flax fiber, which is the oldest textile fiber in the world, and is still shining now.
In 1954, people discovered flax fragments 10,000 years ago at the bottom of the Swiss lake. This is the oldest linen fabric found in the world. Subsequently, people discovered that a piece of linen cloth dating back to 9000 years in the 20th century has been completely preserved. It was used to wrap Egyptian mummies. It seems that the mummy’s well-preservation is also related to this piece of linen. In ancient Egypt, people had a deep meaning to linen-as a symbolic significance of purity, and called it “woven moonlight.” They believe only the most noble people can use linen fabric.
Linen is also a Christian holy object. The most influential piece of linen in the entire Christian world is a piece of linen-the “Turin Corpse” which was used to wrap the body when Jesus was unwound from the lower shelf.
Today, flax fiber is the main linen material and is mainly produced in Western Europe. Flax is produced in Colombia, Poland, Austria, France, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and other countries. The main center of flax production is Ireland. The best flax in the world is produced in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. The flax crop produced in Ireland is called “Linen usitatissimum”, which is mainly grown in Ireland and France. The growth period is about 3 months, and the internal long fibers are strong and strong. Currently, the world’s best linen fabric production center is located in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
