Linen is a natural and sustainable fabric that is made from the flax plant. It is stronger than cotton and has been used to make clothing and household items for the past 6000 years. The fiber has natural heat and moisture-wicking properties which makes it a popular warm-weather fabric.

You either love or hate linen. It is a high-maintenance fabric because it tends to wrinkle very easily. I love the look and feel of linen clothing and its casual and timeless elegance. Linen pieces are great for the summer months because the fabric breathes and keeps your skin dry. Blending linen with cotton can create a fabric that is easier to care for and still drapes well and feels soft.
Let’s take a look at a few linen pieces that are pretty and timeless.
