Linen is an extremely popular natural fiber that has been around forever and stems from the flax plant. It is typically blended with other natural fibers to create a more wrinkle resistant fabric. Linen is smooth, soft, and therefore extremely comfortable. It gets stronger when wet and is antibacterial, abrasion resistant, mildew resistant, fairly fade resistant, does not pill, and is generally considered eco-friendly. Linen upholstery fabric is a natural, soft, beautiful, and all around great fabric for any number of upholstery fabric applications.
