Linen - a vegan option -

Linen is renowned for its superior properties and is again coming to the forefront for its natural health benefits and general well being as well as its ecological and long lasting qualities. 

Our skin is permeable and can absorb the harmful chemicals from synthetic dyes, this is a good reason to be kind to yourself and wear natural colours dyed with plants .

I source  linen from Merchant and Mills laundered European linen traders in New Zealand. This linen is Oeko-Tex certified which is a guarantee that your new clothes have been processed without harmful chemicals .

The flax plant takes around 100 days from planting to maturity, when the flowers bloom it is  a spectacle that people celebrate and enjoy.

Unlike cotton, the entire plant is used including the roots, which are as deep as the plant is tall.
