10 Eco-Friendly Linen Clothing Brands for Breathability & Comfort
sustainable linen clothing brands
There’s no doubt about it; linen is the perfect fabric to wear during the warmer months. This natural fabric has so many great benefits to wearing in heat; it’s no wonder it’s a classic favorite.
Why choose linen before other natural fabrics?
Linen is more durable than cotton, it’s incredibly easy to care for, and it’s moisture-wicking making it very breathable and always cool to the touch. The flax plant (where linen comes from) is more sustainable than most because it requires little water to grow. However, not all linen is created equally. If linen is grown naturally (without pesticides) and undyed or only dyed with eco-friendly dyes, it would be able to biodegrade relatively quickly.
which type of linen should you look for?
My suggestion would be to look for organic linen to ensure no chemicals have been used. I know this can be not easy because organic linen is rarer to find. However, I think linen is already a more sustainable fiber than most, so if you love an ethical brand that uses linen (without an organic label), go for it! You can always mention the fabric and see if they will make the switch (or if it is even attainable for them in the near future). You can also find a couple of certifications like Oeko-Tex & European Flax, which hold higher standards for the production of linen. Overall, linen is a better fabric choice, and it will make a great addition to your Spring & Summer wardrobe - or if you live in warmer climates, your wardrobe all year long!
