Linen is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant, Linum usitatissimum.   It is a labor intensive fabric, valued for its exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Linen is one of the oldest textiles known ~ their history goes back many  thousands of years.  Fragments of straw, seeds fibers yarns, and various types of fabics dating back to about 8000 BC have been found in Swiss lake dwellings.  


and of coarse the we have the lovely Baroness Karen von Blixen with her beautiful wardrobe...
