Linen clothing - what so great about them

Clothes made of linen breathe well, feel lightweight and can be worn for casual or formal occasions. It provides unlimited air access to the body. In such clothes you will never be hot - linen tops, skirts and dresses are pleasantly cold, creating around the body of the owner a certain layer of cool air. Even to the touch, this fabric remains cold in bright sunlight. What could be better in the scorching heat?

Linen fabric removes moisture at high speed, the release of which is inevitable in hot weather, from the body. But the tissue itself does not remain wet for a long time. Linen things dry very quickly, evaporating the liquid from the fibber. The flax has unique bactericidal properties, stops the development of bacteria that cause an unpleasant odor of sweat on the skin, minimizes the risk of skin diseases caused by increased sweating.
Linen is durable and practical and the more often it is worn and washed, the softer, smoother and more beautiful it becomes.

Hаving your own рrivаtе niche in the world will hеlр you еѕсаре when уоu nееd tо decompress after a lоng day. It can bе a hiddеn ѕроt in a lаviѕh hotel lоbbу nеаrbу, оr it can bе a tuсkеd-аwау brеаkfаѕt nook in уоur hоmе whеrеvеr you fееl соmfоrtаblе аnd ѕаfе iѕ where уоu should set up shop.

2. Comfort Food

However, fоr the tоtаl hуggе еxреriеnсе, experts recommend that уоu spend рlеntу of timе in nаturе оr, barring thаt, a fеw hоurѕ outdoors every wееk brеаthing fresh air аnd tаking in the sights. You can even inсоrроrаtе these connections to nаturе in unlikely ways, likе starting a ѕmаll vеgеtаblе gаrdеn on your patio оr crafting a beautiful succulent аrrаngеmеnt fоr уоur dеѕk аt work. Tо mаximizе thе hуggе-nеѕѕ оf connection, trу a day triр with friends tо a rеmоtе and bеаutiful аrеа.

5 Tips - How to make brands collaboration photoshoot

We did it and so can you! As my experience showed the hardest work was to organize everything. This was a great experience and opportunity to make something interesting and different. And now I would like to share my story and tips how we did it.
1. Clear vision and goals for the shoot.
Like any other project you need to spend some time to set your goals and to clarify the vision. Our idea to make a brands group photo shoot came to me about 6 months ago. I spoke with some colleagues that have their own handmade business and we agreed to implement this idea. After discussing the idea several times we put it aside for a while. But this photo shoot hasn’t left my mind. I found some free time and started organizing everything.
Main idea.
The first step was the main message, what we would like to show. How to show all individual brands in one shot. And the best thought comes through debates. So we decided to show some Hygge lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to ask your partners for help. Keep in mind that more people brainstorming are better than one and it may help you with some organizing.
You need to decide where your photos will be used.
  • Website 
  • Sales pages 
  • Blog posts 
  • Social media
  • Newsletter
  • Business cards, postcards etc.
2. Inspiration board for your photo shoot.
It’s time to gather inspiration that will help to capture the look and feel you’re hoping to show in your photos. Creating an inspiration board will help to brainstorm specific shot ideas. Do research in Google and Pinterest to find what you can use for your shots. Use your imagination and find out how you can gather the ideas with your brands and make everything stylish and solid.
3. Make a detailed shot list.
Organize your ideas with color palette, style and personality in mind. Write a detailed list of shot views, angles, things that will be in the shot, props. You can make some pictures collages of how the photos should look like. Our ideal personality of shots was decided earlier, so I just needed to think about colors, shot angles, and styling. In every picture we wanted to show cozy, happy, fulfilling life…
4. Find the right place and interior.
Find a place where you will make a photo shoot and analyze in which spaces you will make your shots. Our biggest challenge was to find the interior that fit our main idea to show the hygge lifestyle. After a few days of browsing apartment rent sites and calling asking if they will let us in just for a few hours to make a photo shoot, we had found the right place. Unfortunately the day before the shooting a rental agent called me and cancelled our reservation. So the search marathon took one more day. Keep in mind that there is always risk that something can go wrong and you need to have an extra plan.
5. Find matching brands and items.
As everything started with my CozyLinen textile, WoolenClogs slippers and shoes and Pillowlink pillow cases, we knew that all products should be eco friendly and cozy. We needed a few more brands to finish the full design so I found a great ceramics master MissdishCeramics and we also needed some clothes for our model so Gusste helped us with knitted clothes from wool and cotton.
All our brands matched in style and colors so it was easier to work with all products together.

Is linen organic material or not?

Organic fabrics do not use pesticides. For people who are sensitive to chemicals and other allergens, organic fabrics have the ability of minimizing allergic reactions. Also, one of the reasons why there are groups that are against the use of pesticides and other chemicals used in crops, is because of the fact that it has the ability to kill birds and other animals. Also, this can trigger the growth of bacteria that are resistant to previous chemicals. Therefore, it disrupts the balance of nature.
All fabrics we use is certificated with a STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
What does that mean? With its decades of experience, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 therefore contributes to high and effective product safety from a consumer’s point of view. Test criteria and limit values in many cases go far beyond applicable national and international standards. Extensive product checks and regular company audits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals. With this concept, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 has taken on a pioneering role for many years.

According to the European Confederation of Linen and Hemp, Flax respects the environment and preserves the land. Organic flax cultivation is viable as flax requires no additional water other than rainwater, little to no fertilizer, and is phytosanitary. The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2 . Not only is growing flax environmentally friendly, but there is no waste when it is processed. Every part of the plant can be utilized.
