MUJI's linen and hemp
Unbleached, natural color
The term "natural" for linen and hemp does not refer to their color but the fact that they have not been bleached. To allow our customers to enjoy materials in their natural state and in view of the environmental pollution caused by bleaching, MUJI is pleased to offer a wide range of items made of natural materials.
The softer the more they are washed
Linen and hemp are believed to have some of the strongest fibers in nature. As their fibers become stronger when moist, you can look forward to a softer material and deeper texture the more you use and wash these fabrics.
Environmentally friendly natural materials
Linen and hemp are derived from fast-growing plants that can be cultivated sustainably with almost no pesticide and little water. These plants also improve the quality of the soil in which they grow, making these materials highly environmentally friendly.
A variety of flax
Excellent permeability to air and moisture absorption/desorption, durable, and dries quickly
Lower environmental impact than linen, coupled with natural antibacterial and UV-blocking properties
Stable material perfect for making bags for grains, etc., due to its shorter fiber length and lower elasticity as compared to linen
