Linen is one of the oldest natural vegetative fiber. Even 5000 years BC linen garments were worn in Egypt and linen fabric was sacred and was used during prays and sacrifice, also for the mummification of Egypt pharaohs. The Lithuanian people were growing linen many years ago. The national Lithuanian songs and tales are mentioning about linen: linen growing, snatching and spinning. The linen is named like sainted plant, sward of sun and corn of women.
Linen fabric is the most acceptable and favorable material for human’s organism: everything what is useful for a person the fabric passes in and what is harmful – doesn’t pass. Linen cell perfectly matches with human’s cell and creates the favorable effect for human’s organism.
