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 linen dress fabric is woven in Poland and sewn in Kirkkonummi, Finland.

Wash the line in 40 degrees, separate from the rest of the laundry. If you want to avoid wrinkling, do not wash with full machine and use a short, about 30 second spinning. It is advisable to iron flax textiles with high heat while the fabric is still damp.
Thin, wrinkled, linen textiles are washed by hand in approximately 30 ° C water. Wash the fabric by pressing with your hands. Add rinse solution to the final rinse water and hang the fabric to dry. Please note that linen fabrics may shrink by 5%.
