The wonderful linen | TOP 5

The wonderful linen | TOP 5

In the heatwave that lasts for weeks, one of the hardest tasks is figuring out what to wear that is at once breezy yet comfortable to wear. The dress made of natural linen is not only comfortable, but also really pleasant and always fashionable for summer wear. In our selection today, we collected the best brands in Eastern Europe that use this ancient material with great passion.

Why is linen the best choice for summer? This natural fabric helps the body regulate the temperature on the hottest days, as it is breezy and excellent absorbent, but not only absorbs moisture quickly, but also releases it fast. Lightweight and skin-friendly material, thanks to its cool feel, it is really comfortable to wear. Clothes made of linen are almost indestructible, we can wear them for a long time, and over time, these pieces only become even softer and more pleasant over time. The only downside is that it is hard so it can crease easily. Its inelasticity is usually improved by mixing other materials such as cotton or synthetic fibers.
