Soft and fresh table linens
Linen is a noble material, which stylists and designers like to highlight in their collections. By opting for table linens sewn from this natural material, you will create a very refined ensemble that will sublimate your dining room, imbuing it with a soft and soothing atmosphere. Linen is naturally pale beige, but you can also choose dyed napkins in a wide range of colors. You will create an atmosphere that invites sharing and conviviality: ideal for meals with family or friends, no? It is a hypoallergenic textile with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Moreover, did you know that linen has the property of becoming more and more supple with each wash? A little rough when first used, your napkins will become softer and softer against the skin. Once machine washed at 60°C, your linen tablecloths and napkins will dry very quickly. Linen is a very light fabric and does not retain moisture. You can use the tumble dryer or put them in the open air. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, as your tablecloths may fade. When you wash them, do not use chlorine-based detergents, which may cause the fabric to turn yellow. The only disadvantage of linen might be that it wrinkles easily: to overcome this problem, simply iron it when it is still a little damp or spray it. Some steamers also have a linen function.
A sustainable and eco-responsible investment
By choosing linen table linens, you are opting for an entirely natural material, made from the maceration of linen stems. The resulting fibers are both fine and very strong, ideal for making excellent quality textiles. The cloth napkin is an ecological and responsible choice because you can reuse it for a long time, unlike paper napkins that are thrown away after each use. If you take good care of your linen napkins, you can keep them for a long time. Did you know that France is the world's largest producer of linen? It is also the oldest natural material in the world.

It is also a very ecological plant in terms of its cultivation, as it requires very little water, compared to the cultivation of cotton for example. Linen farming also absorbs large amounts of CO2. Buying linen tableware allows you to reduce the country's carbon footprint.
