Linen is an ancient fabric—a favorite in countries that are extremely hot. Even though linen wrinkles that is part of its panache. One of the best properties about linen is the fact that it absorbs water quickly and dries just as fast.
Why is it that linen is the preferred fabric in hot, arid parts of the world? It has great breathable properties. It resists mites and dust. When wrinkled it presents a comfortable, lived-in look and leisure attitude.
Health-wise, organic materials are hypoallergenic, meaning they don't harbor the particles in the air that can make it hard to breathe. It's also anti-static and lint won't cling.
Just recently we received a sample towel from a company called LinenMe. LinenMe is Lithuanian-made linen coming from a third generation family business—they are just now introducing their line to the United States market.
