Linen is a natural and sustainable fibre.
Its quality is based on three main factors: the availability of suitable lands, the favourable climatic conditions and the exceptional know-how of the growers.
Furthermore, linen is ecological: its cultivation does not require irrigation or pesticides and does not produce waste, as all parts of the flax plant are used.
Hemp is an annual plant that grows in warm tropical areas and temperate climates.
Its cultivation does not require pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. On the contrary, it is a plant that grows quickly, produces a lot of oxygen and leaves the soil in excellent condition. Furthermore, it does not produce waste as all its by-products are used.
For all these reasons, hemp is considered one of the most ecological fibres in the world.
Kapok is a natural fiber obtained by a tree belonging to bombax family, the Ceiba Pentadora, also called Ciba, that grows spontaneously in the forests of South America, Central America and Africa.
The tree, that stands over the others, can reach up to 70 metres height and the hollow fiber that’s obtained contains 80% air, so it’s very light.
Thanks to its peculiar aspect it is also called “vegetal wool”.
