Linen is a thermo-regulating fiber that provides permanent comfort. Cultivated in Europe and mainly in France, flax is an ecological fiber because its cultivation requires very little irrigation and inputs.
Lithuania has a long tradition of weaving Linen.
This expertise gives us some beautiful fabrics.
The scarf is hand-dyed in Picardie with vegetal pigments.
Light Blue is dyed with Woad. The pigment is extracted from the leaves of the plant that is cultivated locally. For Dark Blue we use Indigo.
Beige is dyed with Onion. For the Browns, we add Gallnut to the Onion. It takes about 6 dips to obtain a deep and uniform color. This artisanal process makes each piece unique.
Machine wash at 30°. Tumble dry and/or iron with a lot of steam to give a soft hand-feel to the fabric.
