Linen is a vegetable fiber found in the stem of the flax plant, a crop that grows in cool places. The material has an airy and cool character. Linen can slightly loose its shape during wearing, after a wash it regains its original shape.


Wash garments inside out as much as possible and wash delicate fabrics in a laundry bag. For colored garments, use a colored laundry detergent. White detergent may contain bleach and can only be used for pure white laundry. Certainly during the first washes, garments can give off color, so only wash with similar colors.

Tumble dryers use a lot of energy, can shrink your garment and cause faster wear. Dry your garment as much as possible on a drying rack with indirect sunlight. This is not only more sustainable, but you can also enjoy your garments for longer.

The washing instructions described are guidelines for the materials in their purest form. Before washing your garment, always check the washing label on the inside of the garment first.


Wash at a maximum of 30 degrees with a liquid detergent.

Tip: add a small splash of natural vinegar (1dl) to the wash for optimal color retention.


Dry linen preferably lying inside out on a drying rack. Gently pull the garment into shape before hanging it on the line. In some cases, linen can be put in a tumble dryer.


Linen has a low elasticity and therefore creases quickly, iron linen inside out in a moist state. Linen is heat resistant and can be ironed on the highest setting with steam.


Linen can be treated by soaking in lukewarm water with a scoop of borax. Rinse manually and then wash as directed. Use as little chemical products as possible on linen, as this can damage the fibers.
