Zavi's Linen

Linen is a plant-based fabric made from flax that happens to be one of the oldest continuously cultivated plants in the world. Flax thrives in pleasant climates and is a resilient plant, requiring few fertilisers or pesticides. Usual rainfall is enough to irrigate cultivations of flax, unlike cotton which can require high volumes of water. In fact, buying a linen shirt instead of cotton will save 13x 1.5 litre bottles of water. Linen can withstand high temperatures, making the fabric ideal for hot summers and is highly moisture absorbent without holding bacteria.
