Linen is considered the champagne of textiles. So, it’s no coincidence that linen has been coveted for thousands of years. When it comes to its velvety feel and its ability to be easy-breezy and breathable, linen reigns supreme. When it comes to our linen bedsheets specifically, here’s the lowdown: Tess. linen bedsheets are manufactured in Europe and woven from 100% French flax hailing from the Normandy region, where the best linen plants grow. At Tess., we’re obsessed with offering you premium linen, which is luxurious, high-functioning and adapts to your body’s temperature. That’s why we sourced the highest-end manufacturers, to ensure you enjoy the best that linen has to offer. The cream of the crop. Although we’re diving right into discussing linen bedsheets, its benefits go way beyond the bedroom: linen is super durable and highly absorbent, making it ideal for towels, tablecloths and napkins.
Here are just some of the reasons why we love linen, for every room of the home.
Linen is the oldest and most desired natural fabric in the world: Linen was the cloth of choice in Ancient Egypt, thanks to its excellent quality, wicking properties and breathability.
Linen is perfect for hot and cold weather. Linen makes the ultimate “light and airy” sleep experience possible. But here’s why it’s next-level fabulous: it has the unique ability to feel cool in balmy weather and cozy in colder temps. Break your old perception of linen: Although we tend to associate linen with hot weather, it also acts as a natural insulator, which keeps you warm when the temperature is cold. And keeping your body within a certain temp can greatly improve your sleep.
And at the same time...
Linen always feels fresh and cool. Linen is porous and has the remarkable ability to absorb up to 20% of its own weight in moisture, while still feeling dry to the touch; this makes it extra appealing as the material of choice for towels.
Linen is allergen-free. Beyond how comfortable linen bedsheets actually feel, linen’s claim to fame as a natural fiber means that is also repels dirt and allergens. So for those of you prone to allergies, linen is a treat. It’s virtually lint-free and non-static, and also offers up UV protection if you decide to bring your linen sheet to the beach.
Linen sheets get softer with each wash.The more you launder your linen sheets, the closer you get to ultimate comfort. Test it out yourself; if you can get out of bed, that is...
And when you consider that Tess. linen sheets are pre-washed several times using a stonewash technique, they also have a vintage-like look and super low-maintenance vibe. On the topic of low-maintenance, linen’s effortless aesthetic means you don’t need to worry about ironing your sheets. Part of linen’s allure is that it’s meant to look lived-in. Need we say more, really?
Live your best life with linen, the Tess. way. You’re welcome.
