Linen was the fibre of choice up until the 18th century. With the Industrial Revolution came machinery that could quickly process the cotton from large plantations. Because cotton became more affordable, it also became the preferable fibre.
Natural Linen requires time. The way in which Natural Linen is cultivated influences the colour of the fibre. Temperature, humidity, sunlight, rain, and soil all have their effect in creating the colours of Natural Linen. In other words, Natural Linen has never been bleached, nor has it been dyed. The colours are derrived naturally.
