Linen is a sustainable and functional material which we use in shirts and jackets and which actually has a very old textile tradition. Before the discovery of cotton, linen was generally one of the most important fibres and was also grown a lot in Germany. However, over the years lots of know-how was forgotten. The tradition was kept alive in the Asian region. Linen has been grown there for centuries. For this reason we get our high quality linen from a small, GOTS and Fairwear certified company in China.
