Pourquoi le lin est-il la matière textile écoresponsable de l'été ?

Je suis la fibre textile naturelle la plus ancienne au monde, déjà très utilisée en Égypte antique, et je suis la matière phare de la nouvelle collection capsule de Balzac Paris, qui suis-je ?

Le lin !

Aujourd’hui, le lin ne représente qu’1% des fibres textiles utilisées dans le monde. Pourtant, c’est LA star des matières écoresponsables ! On vous explique pourquoi :

It is local 🇫🇷

France is the largest flax producer in the world, and 50% of French flax is produced ... in Normandy! More broadly,85% of global linen is cultivated on the coastal strip that runs from Caen to Amsterdam via Belgium.

It is sustainable 🌿

This fragile blue flower becomes the most resistant natural fiber once transformed into wire! Your linen pieces can cross washes, seasons and years without damaging.

He has magical powers✨

It is thermoregulator and hydro-regulator (heat in winter, freshness in summer). It is resistant to light and water, and it isAnallergic and antibacterial!

It is zero waste 🌍

All parts of the plant are valued! Long fiber for textiles, short fiber for paper or cord, seeds in food or cosmetic oils ... Even dust are valued in agricultural amendment And too thick fibers are used for example as insulating materials.

He is delicious in CO2 ☁️

Linen is a real carbon pump! One hectare of linen retains 3.7 tonnes of CO2 each year, Its culture therefore makes it possible to absorb 250,000 tonnes in France every year!

He takes care of the oceans 🌊

It is a plant that requires very little water and few pesticides, which contains neither fertilizers nor GMOs. And did you know? If everyone in France bought a linen t-shirt instead of a cotton t-shirt, we would save the equivalent of water drunk by all Parisians for 1 year and a half!

He leaves no trace of his passage ♻️

Linen is a bio-soupped, biodegradable (If it has not been mixed with synthetic fibers or was chemically dyed), And recyclable!
