Discover UNIQLO Linen

Authentic 100% Premium Linen & signature Linen blended fabrics, crafted with care.
Published 23 October

Linen is one of the world's most enduringly popular fabrics; we turn to it every summer for lightweight, breathable comfort and elegant, breezy style in one simple layer. But what does linen bring to your wardrobe that other time-tested fabrics do not?

The Power Of Flax


The flax plant that eventually becomes linen is pretty special as it requires no irrigation to grow; rainwater is enough. In fact, if flax cultivation was replaced by cotton, 650 billion cubic metres of water would be used in the process.

The flax plant is also a carbon well; each year one hectare of flax retains 3.7 tons of CO2*. The growing process also requires no GMO, no defoliant and only low fertiliser use.

Flax is also a zero-waste plant. Each part of the plant has its purpose: scutching tows can serve as raw material for paper or composite production, shives are ideal for manufacturing chipboard or for animal bedding, and linseeds are transformed into oil.

UNIQLO's women’s premium linen shirt is made exclusively from European Flax® that has met the high standards of the Alliance for European Flax-Linen and Hemp. Partnering with European Flax® since 2017, their label gives UNIQLO shirts a guarantee of quality and traceability.



Why Linen? 

The flax fibre is hollow and can absorb moisture well. In fact, linen fabric can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water! The fibre also releases moisture easily, which makes the fabric dry quickly.

Contrary to popular belief, linen clothing is a great choice for all seasons; not just summer. Linen is naturally thermoregulating, meaning it offers a cooling feeling in summer and insulating properties in winter.

Linen is a very durable fabric and therefore ideal for keeping up with your day-to-day, while staying supple and resistant without pilling or becoming distorted. It can last years and has a high resistance to wear and tear.

Easy care
Linen is easy to care for, and can be hand washed, machine washed or dry cleaned.
