Linen can absorb up to 20% moisture of its weight and it becomes more soft and absorbent with each wash. Whatever the weather, linen sheets will make sure you’re comfortable all night.

It’s more significant if you have sensitive or problematic skin, or have allergies. Linen bedding is super soft and gentle for your skin. It is also Oeko Tex certified - we use linen which is free from harmful chemicals and is suitable for the most sensitive skin. It creates a pleasant microclimate for the skin and maintains natural pH levels for the body allowing it to focus only on getting rest.

Therefore linen bedding is more breathable and temperature-regulating. Linen will keep you comfortable during all seasons - it will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There’s a much lower possibility for you to wake up because of excessive heat or cold.

Massaging effect

Last for generations

Linen is one of the most durable natural materials out there and if cared for correctly, can last for decades. Linen sheets tend to be more expensive than others, for example, cotton, but there’s a simple reason for that. The process of producing the linen sheets is complex, timely, and very expensive, yet the result is super worth it. We get to save money over time and sleep in high-quality bedding with many health benefits. Plus, your linen duvet cover, sheets, and linen pillows will get softer and softer with each wash allowing you to stay comfy all night long.


As you already know - linen is completely natural fiber and also - sustainable material. Why so? In the production process - nothing is wasted and is cost-effective. Other parts of the plant can be used to produce linseed oil or flax seeds for consumption. Growing linen requires less water than cotton or other materials, it is fully biodegradable material (when not dyed), needs fewer pesticides, or can be made without and is a very durable material which means - less spending. You will sleep better just by knowing that you have chosen bed linens that lower your footprint on the planet.
