Benefits Of Wearing Linen In Summer
May is here and it has brought some scorching heat with it. It gives rise to some intense fights while juggling the AC’s on and off buttons. How many of us are in ‘AC Wars’ due to this heat? While AC is one option, clothes play an important role in keeping the heat away! If you end up choosing the wrong fabric, this prickly heat can cause you to sweat more or you might have immense breakouts, and even rashes.
While we stay safe in the comfort of our own homes, it is best to choose the right material that’s most suited for summers. And while cotton is globally famous for being summer’s best fabric, linen is actually a much better choice. Not only it’s extremely comfortable, but the natural fibre also manages to keep you cool & dry. The best part? You won’t have any AC wars!
Here are some of the benefits of wearing Linen in summer -
1.It is hypoallergic and naturally anti-bacterial.
Some people are allergic to certain types of fabric as it can result in rashes and painful breakouts. At times, certain fabrics can agitate the prevailing skin conditions and fire up the symptoms. Linen, on the other hand, is quite breathable and allows the air to move easily.
Being one of the oldest fabrics used by humans, linen is not only reliable but actually beneficial. Did you know that linen is naturally anti-bacterial? It’s a great option if you want to buy men’s shirts that don’t cause itching. And these shirts come in different colours so you can pair a white shirt for men with jeans and blazer for a party look! (We have some amazing linen pants collection too)
2. It is highly breathable.
As a fabric, linen is considered stiff and that’s why it doesn’t cling to your skin. The wind allows the fabric to dry quickly. Linen is not only a good conductor of heat but also highly absorbent. It absorbs all the moisture (read perspiration) and dries off faster than other fabrics.
So, you won’t feel clammy ever! Doesn’t it feel like the best cooling system you could ever ask for? Additionally, you won’t have to juggle with AC’s on and off button!
3. It is a sustainable choice.
Made from a flax plant, linen fibre is more environmentally friendly (read sustainable) as it requires less irrigation and energy. But we have made a conscious effort and decision to opt for natural dew-retted flax, which significantly reduces the water consumed in our supply chain. And through the European Flax® label and audit process, we not only ensure that the flax we use is cultivated sustainably but also has minimal wastage.
Our parent company, Jaya Shree Textiles is India’s first integrated Linen factory, with state-of-the-art spinning, weaving and processing systems. In the past seventy years, sustainability was never about following a certain set of standards. Our vision always has been to go beyond sustainable operations and create sustainable products for people.
By the way, do you know what’s another best part about this fabric? It is more durable than cotton and that’s why linen shirts are extremely long-lasting. While it isn’t indestructible but if you take proper care, it’s more likely that the shirt will last for years. With classy linen shirts for men, you can feel extremely comfortable and be fashionable at the same time. So, how many linen shirts do you own currently?
