Living with Linen

From washing to storing, here are some tips on caring for your linen wear so you can enjoy the linen pieces for a long time.

  • Washing

    Linen fibrous strength increases when wet, therefore it is able to withstand repeated washings in the washing machine. However, avoid using bleach and whitening agents as they can damage the fibers and cause discoloration.

  • Drying

    Straighten the shape and smooth out the wrinkles before hanging it to dry, this will make the ironing afterwards smoother. As the fabric is firm, you can also enjoy the natural texture without the need to iron. Linen fibers are hollow so it absorbs water and dries quickly when hung in a well-ventilated area.

  • Ironing

    To iron linen, it is recommended to smooth out small creases on the inside before you iron the front. A buffer such as a pressing cloth can be placed between the hot iron and the linen garment to prevent press marks or flattening them to the point of creating a shine.

  • Storing

    Linen is best stored in cool and dry places to prevent mold growth. Steer clear of plastic and wrap them in thin paper to allow air circulation and preserve the integrity of the fabric.
