FANCY & GLITTER
Visual and tactile richness: textured jacquards, vegetal and aquatic prints; lace and tulle, embroidered and hand openwork effects, floating or delicately unraveled threads. Interplays with metallic threads ; iridescent, mother-of-pearl and metallic surfaces.
A versatile fibre that takes colour exceptionally well: linen yarns lend themselves to the most sophisticated weaves and finest lace in a vast range of colours; in its more natural form, it comes enriched with a wide array of finishes, coatings and contrasting decorative effects.
TAILORING & CLASSIC-CHIC
Dealing with density and suppleness: softened compact suiting in 100% linen and Linen- recycled cotton ; dry linen-wool suitings , classic masculine weaves, tone-on-tone reliefs, finely-cut solids, assumed or suggested stripes, XXL geometrics. Linen-silk with a sober fluidity, compact glossy pure linen satins ; calendered, mercerized or waxed finishes; light coatings with soft stiffness. Dense and fluid linen-Pa jersey.
By nature, the processing of linen integrates blending; it also combines well with other fibres, whether traditionally refined or technical. A fusional fibre, linen successfully suits this synthesising, lending a certain body – in both its hang and its durability – a firm but soft handle, density without the weight.
