At Tumbledown we are passionate about thoughtfully designed, carefully sourced, high quality products. We believe in the beauty of bringing these products into our everyday lives.
It is therefore critical to us that we use the highest quality fabric and sewers to create our bedding. The best linen flax is sourced from Europe, this is due to the ideal weather climate. For this reason, Tumbledown's linen is grown, woven and sewn in Europe.
Why we love flax linen...
Flax linen is highly absorbent
The flax fibre, from which linen is made, is hollow and absorbs moisture well. To be precise, it can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water before starting to feel damp. And because it absorbs and transports moisture rapidly, linen keeps your skin dry (and you comfortable) throughout the night.
Flax linen is breathable
Besides absorbing moisture well, linen fibers are also able to release it fast. The flax plant is hollow allowing for higher air permeability, thus linen fabric dries out quickly and doesn’t stick to the body. Linen is also a natural insulator meaning it keeps you cool in the summer and retains heat from your body in the colder months.
Flax linen is hypoallergenic
Linen has many health properties, some claim it heals wounds faster and helps alleviate skin conditions such as eczema. But most importantly, linen is hypoallergenic and is perfect for those who have sensitive skin or suffer from allergies.
Our linen is OEKO-TEX certified, meaning it is absent of allergenic dyes, pesticides, or heavy metals. To attain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, the fabric has been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health.
