Linen clothing made in South Africa. We love linen because it is biodegradable, water-wise and long-wearing. Linen clothing thermoregulates and absorbs excess moisture. Read More
The clothing in this section of Equilibrio are either made from 100% linen or are made from a blend of linen and another fibre like cotton. For years we pushed against wearing this fabric that creases easily but we have learned to “embrace the crease” and its natural, luxurious characteristics which improve over time and with every wash. These garments will last you a lifetime and become the favourite items in your closet.
Linen clothing has been around for centuries. All of ours is made in small quantities in South Africa. One of the oldest textiles used by humans, linen is made from the beautiful purple-flowered flax plant.
Beyond its rich history and aesthetic appeal, linen is 100% biodegradable and will return to the earth in less than six months, leaving no trace behind.
Linen clothing is also water-wise, requiring very little for both growing the plant and making the fabric. It’s a hollow fibre insulator which means it thermoregulates, it can absorb up to 20% of its weight whilst still feeling dry to touch. Once absorbed, it releases the moisture to the outside air.
Linen is also virtually lint-free, non-static, non-allergenic, gives UV protection and is a natural insect repellent. As with most things, it gets better with age too – softer and suppler the more you wash it.
