Linen Fabric Types

As we all probably know well – linen fabric or weave is produced of fiber of the flax plant. Its softness, natural origins, durability and strength, as well as its antifungal and antibacterial properties are the reasons linen fabric is loved by its fans for. And of course there are various types of the linen fabrics – distinguished from each other by the texture and weave pattern.

Damask linen fabric is a type that is woven on a jacquard loom, using a mix of plain and satin weaves. The fibers most often are flat and reversible, and therefore damask fabric has a smooth texture with a reversible pattern. To make the design and pattern stand out, damask usually comes in one color and is usually used for linen napkins, linen tablecloths, linen table runners and other home textile pieces.? A variation of damask is a Venise linen fabric. It is very finely textured and characterized by large floral patterns.??

Meet Huckaback Linen Towels

Pure linen towels are considered a premium type of all bath towels. Why is that? Let’s get acquainted with huckaback linen towels which are the most popular choice.
