The refined texture and durability of linen is found in the flax plant fiber. The priceless technique used to weave linen allows it to breath making it a living piece of fabric either as a standing roll, a full length curtain or on a piece of furniture it expands and contracts. This unique feature makes it one of the sort after fabric material as it can be used to make fine and delicate items and revered for its coolness and freshness in all seasons. On the other hand, cotton is more soft and fluffy, which comes from stale fiber in the plant. It’s softness and breathable textile results from being spun multiple times, turning boll of cotton into thread. Comparing cotton to linen, cotton is a good insulator making it a desired fabric material simply because of it’s comforting softness and warmth were as linen absorb 20% of moist. Cotton does not crease easily and it’s easy to dye.
