Linen saree, as the name suggests, is made out of linen fabric
Linen is a type of (natural) fabric made out of flax yarn. It is mostly natural as most of the fabric has organic( plant based) origin. It can be used to make most type of apparels. Since it’s a natural fabric, it is comfortable in summer/hot/temperate climate.
Majority of younger generation prefer linen over cotton, although linen is a bit tedious to care for as compared to cotton but it’s every bit more comfortable.
The reasons why Linen is not very popular:
- Slightly expensive compared to organic cotton because of limited yield.
- Difficult to maintain
- Not as long lasting as blended fabrics
