WHY LINEN ?
If you care about being healthy, looking good, and feeling energized, then
you should care about getting a good night’s sleep. The sheets on your bed
can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. Actually, we spend
a third of our lifetime sleeping, during which our bodies actively absorb some
of the toxins, synthetic fibers and irritants that exist in our bedding. A decrease in
energy, fatigue, asthma, allergies, and skin rashes can be traced back to the
harmful pollutants in the sheets that wrap us up every night. We have a healthier
alternative – 100 percent pure linen. Its health properties are endless; however,
we will briefly outline just a few of its benefits, so you can discover why
linen is the only choice in quality bedding.

WHAT IS LINEN
Linen comes from the nutrient-rich flax plant that grows throughout
many parts of the world, but mostly in Europe. It is eco-friendly, requires
little water and thrives in direct sunlight. Once it reaches five feet in height
it is harvested. Its seeds are used for food, and its inner stalk strands, for
luxurious fabrics. Look closely at a linen sheet and you will see long, fibrous
strands that have been dried, rinsed and woven into naturally anti-bacterial,
insect-repellent fabric, free of lint and other irritants.
WHY IS LINEN IMPORTANT?
A recent study shows that we come in contact with over 700,000 chemicals
daily, including cancerous levels of arsenic, dioxins, and DDE. They are in
the air we breathe, the paper products we touch, and the food we eat.
If you are not sleeping on 100 percent pure linen bedding, these toxins are
in the sheets you sleep on. During sleep, our body is in cellular recovery mode.
Sleep allows us to flush bad toxins, repair damaged cells, and dump unneeded
thoughts from our brain to reduce stress and bring clarity. Linen has natural
anti-bacterial qualities that encourage circulation and draw toxins away from
the body, improving air quality and circulation, which in turn contribute to a
healthier sleep environment. Blended cottons and polyesters can trap toxins
against your skin and suffocate cells during regeneration
LINEN IMPROVES SKIN HEALTH
The number one cause of aging skin, lines, and wrinkles is dehydration
linked to inadequate sleep. Good, quality sleep allows the body to repair
itself, reduce oxidative stress, and secrete natural antioxidants that are
essential for cellular recovery. 100 percent pure linen bed sheets encourage
circulation while retaining and absorbing moisture for optimal temperature
control. Only linen can keep you cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather.
That property prevents excessive sweating or rapid dehydration. Synthetic and
cotton material can hold moisture, leaving a layer of damp sweat on your skin.
Linen lifts moisture up and off your skin, so you are more comfortable and
wake up healthier, happier, and better hydrated.
LINEN REDUCES ALLERGENS & IRRITANTS
Researchers estimate that one in ten adults and one in thirteen children
now has an allergy, an almost 50 percent increase in the last twenty years
at an expense of 25 billion dollars. Parents, teachers, and the kids themselves
are asking why? There are many theories that point to various answers, but
what remains indisputable is that we adults must create a healthier
environment for our children. 100 percent pure linen sheets are completely
natural, anti-bacterial and antiviral – reducing free radicals in the air for
better air quality.
LINEN IS THE CLEANEST, DURABLE FABRIC
100% Pure Linen is the worlds most durable and fabric. It is the only natural
fabric that wards off germs, pests and toxins. Since linen is made of natural
flax fibers and not woven threads, it stays cleaner, whiter longer. Dirt, oil and
dead skin cannot become trapped in the fibrous softness, as they can with
cotton or blends. Linen is a material that has stood the truest, longest test of
time having been discovered in 8,000 B.C. revered by Egyptian royalty and
dignitaries from around the world. These sheets are now available to you.
LINEN IS ECO-FRIENDLY
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.2 billion people lack
access to clean water. Our earth is struggling to sustain precious natural
resources that we all depend on for life. That makes it hard to process that
it takes an average of 1,800 gallons of water to produce enough cotton for
just one pair of jeans. One pair of jeans…! It is almost irresponsible not to
support the linen industry. Here’s why. Linen grows naturally in moist
climates and requires 60 percent less water than cotton. Linen is virtually
self-sustaining, naturally pest-repellent, and much kinder to our planet than
cotton or synthetics.
