Spotlight On: Linen

An All Natural Fabric

Given the choice of man made or natural fabrics, more and more people are choosing natural and this season it’s all about linen. This year we’re very excited to introduce gorgeous linen pieces to our new season collections, a first for Jacques Vert and Dash.

We are big fans of this beautiful material: the feel of the fabric against the skin, the quality of the fibres, the lightness, all lead to a refined and elegant look. Choose a linen suit for a smart summer workwear look.

The Low-down On Linen

It is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant. It’s a fabric that’s arduous to manufacture, but the end result is a fibre that’s very absorbent and pieces made of linen are revered for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather. What’s not to like?

Linen is therefore the perfect material for warm spring and hot summer days, the ideal holidaywear. We just love how cooling it feels on holiday, but we understand it can be a little tricky to pack without opening your bag to find a heap of creased clothes at your sunny destination! Here’s our little packing guide to help you.

How to Pack Linen for Holiday

  • Turn the item inside out so the  lining is on the outside and fabric on the inside
  • Place tissue in the middle of the item before folding
  • Fold with as little folds as possible
  • Hang items up as soon as you reach your holiday destination and for any stubborn creases hang your item in the shower for a quick steam

We are very excited about Jacques Vert’s new range of linen pieces this summer, so keep your eyes peeled for the launch! Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect…
