Linen is a beautiful, environmentally friendly natural fibre. It is recyclable and biodegradable, which means that it will not end up overflowing in landfill like many of its synthetic counterparts. Its composition and loose weave also allows air flow and heat conductivity. This makes it the perfect cooling fabric for our subtropical climate, especially as we approach the tail end of winter and warmer days begin to return.
Linen is also produced from the flax plant, which is also harvested for flaxseeds and linseed oil. Its wide range of uses means that it leaves no waste. Flax also grows naturally and does not require chemicals to be processed into textile. It also uses fewer pesticides and less water than cotton. It is a productive crop which requires little space. It produces a high yield and is gentle on our land. Linen has been used since ancient times, serving as a testament to it’s sustainability and longevity.
On top of the environmental benefits, linen looks effortlessly beautiful. Soft and light to wear, it provides a rich simplicity for the wearer. Our beautiful model Becky McGuire imbues this natural beauty in our latest editorial.
The current ILMA collection has been crafted from pure linen in a bid to provide this reconnect to the environment, minimize our impact and embrace each wearers pure beauty.
