The sun has been shining and we have had the luxury of incredible weather. It is warm in the air even when it is raining and Linen has made a HUGE come back to our stores with social media pushing it!
As we are getting back to the new, normal way of life it is time to start thinking about what we should have in our wardrobes. Venturing out to have socially distanced meet ups is giving everyone a new meaning, on the super hot days we have been having there is nothing better to wear than linen clothing!
A Few Facts about Linen!
(The following information I retrieved from the website linked below so for anymore please click on the link (for more in depth).)
Click the link below to see the making process; I do want to point out that there are 2 processes -
- Natural Retting - This is where natural bacteria breaks down the pectin, this takes longer but is the best way.
-Fast Retting - this is where chemicals are used to break down the pectin which is much worse for the environment and more likely to be used in Fast Fashion.
I have come across a lot of linen in high street stores but if you are looking for something a little different, here are 2 great linen summer brands I want to share with you and I believe are perfect for now!
(I am no way affiliated with either of these brands, this is NOT an AD. I love to support small businesses and I would love to share them with you)
Or 'The Míe' if you are looking on instagram. This brand is based in Lagos in Nigeria, they have the most stunning linen and cotton pieces. Made in Nigeria .
'Míe is a lifestyle brand that provides design and fashion consciously made to be nature-friendly. Our focus is on resort wear, made with natural and biodegradable fabrics, that are breathable, elegant and functional, for conscious women and all women with refined taste.'
They currently don't have any stockists in the UK, however they do deliver here and I would highly recommend taking a look at their website!
