Breezy and luxurious linen is considered a summertime staple. Adults love it for being lightweight and low maintenance, but have you ever considered linen baby and children's clothing? Linen has many positive attributes that translate well into children’s wear. If you thought linen was reserved for summer wedding suits or holiday blouses, get ready to change your mind. Find out all the reasons we love linen below, because we can't stop talking about it.
Is Linen A Sustainable Fabric?
We’ve got excellent news for you - the answer is a big fat yes! In fact, linen can be considered the original sustainable fashion fabric. It’s been used for centuries, dating back as far as Ancient Egyptian times.
Linen is a completely natural and biodegradable fabric that is derived from the eco-friendly flax plant. Its production process is also gentle on the earth, as flax is a resilient plant that can grow in almost any type of soil. Manufacturing linen requires minimal water consumption and pesticide use, resulting in a low environmental impact.
Another great thing about linen production is that barely any waste is created. Flaxseed and linseed oils can be derived from the flax plant, which can be used in everything from cooking to cosmetics. It's a true gem of ethical fashion.
The Benefits Of Children's Linen Clothing
Linen is one of the strongest fibers out there, which means it will stand the test of time. You’ll never have to worry about linen garments falling apart after a few washes. Linen baby clothing will retain its amazing quality no matter how many spills or stains come its way. Linen’s long lifespan makes it a prime candidate for luxurious and stylish hand-me-downs for new siblings, cousins, or friends.
Fun fact: linen becomes softer and more pliable with each wash. It also has the ability to absorb moisture without holding onto bacteria. Linen clothing will keep your baby feeling comfortable and fresh all day long.
As if linen couldn’t get any better, it’s also undeniably stylish! Linen creates an effortlessly luxurious feel on wearers of all ages. Plus, it actually looks good with creases so kids are free to be their active selves when wearing linen. What could be sweeter than a baby girl in a linen dress or a baby boy in a linen romper?
Due to its lightweight nature, linen is often considered a summer fabric. It is great for keeping you cool in the heat, but linen’s temperature regulating properties also make it an excellent choice for staying warm once the temperatures drop. To extend linen’s life beyond the summer, simply choose pieces in autumnal hues that can be dressed up with light layers.
