Linen is one of the oldest and most widely used fabrics thanks to its versatility. Particularly in countries that experience hot summers for a large part of the year, Linen exists more as a soft summer breeze that just happens to cover up their body as clothing! It feels oh-so-comfortable to the skin while appearing crisp and sturdy even in humid conditions. However, it is not a bed of roses to make a Linen saree. The stunning Linen saree come from pretty hardcore and labour-intensive procedures. Flax is grown (it takes around 100 days to cultivate) and its fibre is separated before it is woven into fabric. Each of these processes involves manual labour and extensive physical work. The separation of flax fibres involves a process called retting and the weaving is done with specific counts as per requirements. The earliest Linen in Egypt is said to have had a thread count of 450 to an inch, which is finer than anything woven today! In a world of factory produced fully machine made fabrics, the Linen stands stubbornly demanding the involvement of workers. So, the Linen that reaches you is a story of these heroes who pack in that extra little bit of love along with their amazing work.
