Linen is easy, timeless, and long-lasting, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t best practices to consider when it comes to working with the material. Just like leather or wool, there are countless different blends, qualities, and production processes to consider when choosing your next linen piece. Top-tier linen products are typically made from 100% linen, so be sure to opt for pieces with high percentages of linen to make sure you’re going for the best quality. In the linen world, the best of the best usually has an extremely soft, buttery texture, so if the linen you’ve sampled feels rough or scratchy, it may be time to look elsewhere for your summer style needs.
