Origin of the material
The linen in this fabric was grown in Belgium and France, the organic cotton in Turkey (Aegean organic cotton). The fabric is woven exclusively for Ecological Textiles in Germany.
Linen is considered to be one of the most sustainable textiles known. The flax plant doesn't require irrigation during growth and even when it is grown conventionally it needs little or no treatment with herbicides or pesticides. Linen is a natural product, 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
The organic cotton warp is made from yarns from Aegean organic cotton, one of the best qualities known. It was grown organically and spun in a GOTS-certified factory.
