The NEW Maiwa Linen Clothing

by - Wednesday, May 01, 2019


Silk is elegant. Cotton is hard-working. Wool cares for you and keeps you warm. But linen … linen is the reward. Linen has a singular character and gives a hand to fabric that is unlike anything else. It rewards the skillful weaver, knitter, dyer and artisan. 

Linen gets better with age - taking on a buttery smoothness. These clothes are easy to wear. They can be combined with almost anything. To wear linen is to experience the profound pleasure of cloth.

Linen is one of the most challenging fibres to naturally dye. Maiwa was one of the first to revive the art of naturally dyed and block printed linen. We feel we've nailed it. Beautiful rich jewel-like tones that are deep and true. Light colours that are delicate without being weak. Natural dyes that show the true beauty of hand block printed fabrics.

Maiwa clothing is available at Maiwa on Granville Island

These garments are naturally dyed on linen by the famous Dabu printers of Rajasthan, India.
