• Linen is recognized as one of the most ecological fibers in the textile industry today. Its culture originates in France and Belgium, close to Baserange’s fabric and garment factories.
• Linen requires no irrigation—in fact, it can be grown even in poor soil where food cultivation would be impossible. It requires no chemicals for growth or for rendering into yarns for textiles.
•A breathable fabric with a nice fall, linen is strong and absorbent. It’s more durable and dries faster than cotton. Its naturally cooling properties make it an appealing option for summer wear.
• The only issue with linen production is that France and Belgium no longer have any spinning and weaving factories. Currently the plants must be shipped to China to be transformed into textile yarn.
The linen Baserange uses for our knitwear is spun in Poland by a French company.
