The linen shirt made of 100% linen. Linen production is almost zero waste, as flax roots are so long that almost 100% are utilised and leftovers like flax dust can be used for wall insulations. The seeds provide oil for dyes, paint, cosmetics and floor coverings. When ground, they form a flour used in poultices. The fibers have been used as sutures. The by-products of linen production are processed into a pulp used for banknotes or fiberboard.The extraction of flax fibers is mechanical, so no chemicals are needed in the process. As linen garments are said to get better with age and each wash, having and cherishing a linen garment for a long time is desirable.
The shirt is made in a small atelier in Tallinn, Estonia. Manufacturing nearby enables us to produce only what our customers want and need, eliminating excess and surplus use of resources, in respect to the environment. And moreover, it enables us and our customers feel good, knowing that the people who make our clothes are treated well. Each garment also carries the name of the person who made it.
