Of all the feedback you offered, one request stood above the rest. So of course, we’re pleased to introduce the material that so many of your customers have asked for—classic linen. These lighter, natural fabrics will complement our thicker linen-weave favorites like Estate, Lady Moura, Looking Glass, and White Rabbit.
Linen is known as the king of natural fabric. It is woven from flax fibers and is one of the oldest known natural fabrics—flax has been cultivated in just about every country in the world and used to make fiber for over six thousand years.
You create images for your clients that appeal to their senses and emotions. Few fabrics elicit as many sensory reactions as linen. It brings to mind the comfort and freshness of line-dried bedsheets and the luxurious sophistication of fine dining. Linen is crisp, clean, cool, and fresh. The relief of a breeze on a hot summer night. The perfection of a blue-sky wedding day. The unspoiled purity of a newborn.
There are countless album applications for classic linen, so we’re offering you a range of colors to complement your finest work, regardless of specialty. Because of its porous nature, linen fabric holds dye colors wonderfully. Choose from a generous range of solid shades—natural ivory, soothing muted hues, summery shades of a cottage garden, rich jewel tones, and classic neutrals.
Linen has many benefits as a choice of album cover. This fabric is:
- gentle, naturally anti-bacterial, and hypoallergenic.
- smooth and lint free thanks to long fibers reaching up to eight inches.
- strong and durable—two to three times stronger than cotton. Linen fabric lasts a very long time.
- pre-washed for softness, with just a touch of rayon to keep it crisp and looking fresh forever.
- the perfect partner for foil imprinting (debossing).
You will love linen’s natural woven texture and gentle luster. We can’t wait until you and your customers experience the immense satisfaction of holding a linen Finao album.
