Shop Trendy Linen Dupatta from Chinaya Banaras Did you know that linen was produced almost 30,000 years ago in parts of Europe? Cotton may be the most famous plant-based fabric we know but clearly, Linen takes the prize for being one of the oldest textiles produced by humans. Linen is made from the stalks of the flax plant. Initially used by the rulers of Mesopotamia, the usage of linen was popularised by the Egyptians. The breathability of the fabric made it a favourite choice to beat the heat of ancient Egypt. Linen continued to be mass-produced in Colonial Europe until they discovered cotton. Gradually, it vanished from the scene as cotton became a cheaper and more easily available alternative. In the last few decades, the popularity of linen is on the upswing again. More people, especially celebrities, are opting for ethical and sustainable fashion. Sarees, dupattas, Kurtis and even men’s suits made in linen are in vogue today.
Top Reasons to Wear Linen Here are a few reasons why you can never ignore linen fabric. ∙ Linen is the strongest natural fibre (yes, even more than cotton!). This makes clothes made from linen extremely durable. An item of clothing like a linen dupatta can last for many seasons.
∙ Linen does not require any special care. It can be easily washed in machines.
∙ Linen is luxurious. Over time the fabric becomes softer and smoother on your skin.
∙ Linen is hypoallergenic. People suffering from allergies find that certain fabrics aggravate their conditions. This is because many fabrics lock in moisture leading to the growth of microbes. But linen is breathable, a fabric that lets air move freely.
