Why natural fibers?One of Linen Way’s important goals is to raise consumer awareness and educate our customers. Contemporary textile markets offer a wide range of products, so sometimes it’s hard to decide. You make your choice based on the fabric, end-use, and care of your textile products nearly daily. By making an informed decision regarding even a small purchase, you, as a consumer, have the power to affect the direction of the market and the future of our planet.
Products made from natural fibers are the most eco-green alternative on the market. The reason for this is the source - nature itself! Petrochemicals are the main source of synthetic fibers like polyester, acrylic, and nylon. Petrochemicals are chemical products made from raw materials of petroleum or hydrocarbons. In simple terms, the base material for synthetics is oil. Most synthetic fabrics are not biodegradable, so this means that unless it is properly recycled and utilized, they will remain in your local landfill forever. The processes needed for synthetic, artificial fiber production are very polluting and one of the factors that contribute to global warming. On the contrary, natural fibers are completely biodegradable; unlike oil, they are a renewable resource. Increased use of natural fibers such as linen, alpaca, wool, cashmere, and silk means reduced dependency on oil consumption. The use of natural fibers supports the ecosystem of our planet. Plants are food and shelter for animals and insects and produce oxygen for humanity. Natural fibers have unique properties that man cannot substitute made synthetic fibers.
So if you want quality, durability, and environmentally friendly products, welcome to Linen Way!
