Why use Linen for Sleepwear?
Sustainability and being kind to the earth is important to us at Jade and May - and although we are far from perfect, we do attempt to choose fabrics and processes that leaves the least impact on our environment as possible whilst also producing a high quality and beautiful product.
For this reason, Linen features heavily in our range of sleepwear here at Jade and May.
Linen is produced from the flax plant, and the benefits of using the product of the flax plant rather than a manmade fabric are huge.
The flax requires less water to grow than other natural fibres, there is very little waste from the Flax plant, less pesticides required during the growing process - and best of all it is a highly durable so you will wear it for many years to come!
But the benefits don't end there.. linen is a breathable fabric which can wick away moisture allowing you to stay fresh and cool in summer yet will regulate your temperature to keep you warm in winter - meaning you can wear your sleepwear all year around. No need to purchase different sleepwear for different seasons anymore.
Antibacterial in nature, linen is a luxurious and highly durable fabric that naturally does not allow germs to breed meaning your linens can be washed less often and will not only last you many years to come but will even become better with age, softening and becoming more pliable to your touch.
And then when the kimono is finished with, remove any labels and cut the kimono into smaller pieces and throw it into your compost! It will break down naturally in a matter or weeks without releasing any chemicals.
