More and more of our customers are asking us about the environmental impact of linen, and more specifically, what we are doing to create a more eco-friendly product.
Healthy and sustainable fabric and fibers are at the root of what we offer here at Majeste Linens.
Flax offers multiple ecosystem benefits. Flax is biodegradable and can be grown in cold climates (or off season), allowing for increased crop rotation and helping farmers use less land. This can alleviate deforestation as farmers seek to meet increasing demands. Flax also grows quickly and requires less irrigation, pesticides and herbicides, helping to stabilize and protect local water sources.
The whole flax plant can be used, leaving no waste.
Flax grows naturally and requires less water and fewer pesticides than cotton, making it a more eco-friendly fabric.
Because it’s a natural fiber, flax linen is recyclable and biodegradeable
Flax is gentle on the land and is easy to incorporate into modern crop rotation cycles, preventing soil depletion.
Very little energy is required to process flax.
Linen yarn is inherently strong, which reduces the need for starching during spinning and weaving.
Linen fabrics can be recycled into paper and insulation materials for the car industry.
Flax linen is many times stronger than cotton, which means clothing, window treatments, and upholstery made from linen are made to last, rather than wind up in a landfill.

Both markets are completely unregulated, meaning they have very little or no standards or rules about how the product is made.
Including child labor, terrible working conditions, massive amounts of nasty chemicals used in the processing and no respect for the environment.
