The most sustainable fabric is having its time in the sun. Made from flax, this temperature regulating fabric is also anti-bacterial, naturally moth resistant, stronger and longer lasting than cotton and uses less water to produce. It can be grown without the need for fertilizers and pesticides and is a fast growing plant that easily regenerates. It also generates very little waste in its production. At a time when people are more environmentally conscious than ever, linen is winning everyone's hearts. But don't buy from fast fashion companies that add to the problem- choose vintage and small business instead!
