Where do we use burlap

Airy linen

Linen is a vegetable tissue that is obtained from the stems of the flax plant.
The short linen fibers are spun into coarse yarns, while the long fibers are processed into the finest linen yarns. Linen has the following positive properties:

  • Robust
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Breathable
  • Absorbent

Because of these properties, we often use linen in Sandwich's spring and summer collections. This mainly applies to fabrics made from 100% linen; however, the material is also used in combination with other fibers. Linen is easy to dye. One dyeing process that Sandwich often uses for linen is garment dyeing, which involves dyeing the finished garment in one go.

Linen can be machine washed without any problems. Please note, however, that many detergents contain optical brighteners and are therefore only suitable for white or undyed linen products. These detergents should not be used on dyed linen as they can cause color fading and discoloration. If a linen garment has contrasting colors or a print, the colors may rub off when washed. Use liquid laundry detergent sparingly and add 100 ml of white vinegar to prevent the color from fading. When you hand wash a garment, never soak it in water.

Gently pat the linen product into shape before drying. Do not tumble dry the garment as this may shrink it. Never hang linen clothes in the blazing sun.

Iron linen when it is damp and set the iron to the highest setting. There are two ways of ironing: If you iron the linen inside out, the natural sheen of the fabric is emphasized. When ironing inside out, on the other hand, the fabric gets a more neutral and natural look.
