Linen reduces gamma radiation almost by half and protects humans against solar radiation. It can withstand high temperatures, making it perfect for hot climates. It also absorbs moisture without holding bacteria as it is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. Linen gets stronger when it’s wet. Meaning that unlike fast fashion cheap fabric, linen will look the same after a few washes, and it will actually become softer, stronger and more comfortable over time. Heat conductivity of linen is 5 times as high as wool, and 19 times as silk. Wearing linen clothes may help to decrease some skin issues like rash and eczema.
At Sundays, our linen is grown and processed at mills in Russia and Lithuania. All of our garments are OEKO-TEX certified and the production of the linen causes no air, noise or water pollution. Our linen has been tested for over 100 harmful toxins and chemicals before approving it for public use. All of our fabrics have been softened using an air process that loosens up the stiff natural fibers without affecting the fabrics durability - no chemicals are used to soften any of our fabrics.

Care for Linen
Linen can be machine washed but we recommend that you use cold water or hand wash it if you choose. Washing linen in cold water will not only prevent it from shrinkage but also from color fading. As we always keep you and the environment in mind, we recommend you reduce the laundry time, the less you wash it the longer it will last.
You can also iron or steam straight out of the wash or when they are dry if you don’t like wrinkles! Use the linen function on your iron or if you don’t have that set it to medium-high- heat setting. When you iron dark colored linen always iron it on the backside so you can avoid your piece to become shiny.
