Linen - From Ancient Agriculture to Custom-Made Shirts
With its soft, sensuous feel, rock-hard durability and unrivalled comfort, it's no wonder that linen has been the fabric of choice among discerning men for thousands of years.
Of course, as with all great inventions, the origin of linen has been the topic of many heated debates among historians. Some say that the evidence of this ancient cloth can be traced as far back as 7000-8000 B.C. in Mesopotamia and Turkey, while others claim that the ancient Egyptians domesticated the flax plant about 5,000 years ago when they developed the labor-intensive process of transforming the tough, fibrous stems into a luxurious, highly sought-after fabric.
Made from the stalks of the flax plant, linen is indisputably the most ecologically friendly of all the fabrics: the flax plant requires no irrigation and is rarely treated with chemicals or pesticides. Every part of the plant is used - the seeds are transformed into oils, medicine and food products.
Aside from the fact that it looks and feels great (and like a good wine, linen shirts get better with age), linen boasts some enviable qualities. It is naturally hypoallergenic, lint-free and best of all, it's the hands-down most breathable fabric on the planet. With frequent wear tailor made linen shirts develop an unmistakable patina, which explains why men refuse to give up their old, well-worn linen shirts.
Here at Vitruvien, linen tops the ranks as our most popular fabric for our custom-made shirts, thanks in part to the fact that we don't just use any linen in our tailor-made products, we use only top-shelf linen made from genuine Belgium flax seeds.
Why? Because we've searched the world over, and we've concluded that custom made Belgian Linen shirts is quite simply the most luxurious fabric on the planet!
