Half linen

What is half linen?

Under this seal, linen of the highest quality combines with the advantages of cotton. The definition of half linen means that the warp threads of the fabric are made of pure cotton and the weft threads are made of 100% linen. The proportion of linen fibers is at least 40%. A composition of high-quality yarn qualities that are woven and refined in Germany.

Quality control has been established to a high standard in German linen culture for centuries. Evaluating the quality of linen has a centuries-old tradition. The sale used to be subject to the so-called laying obligation. Official laying masters got up close and personal with the laid out material. They tested yarn, weaving and dyeing quality and classified them according to classes. A stamp or cloth seal sealed the quality mark.

Since the 1920s, the German oath seal has stood in this tradition of self-confident and critical control. The stylized hand raised to swear an oath guarantees the highest quality. Real linen with character. It is natural and authentic, durable and easy to care for.

Raw fibers from Western European fields are spun into yarn in specialized German or European spinning mills. These are processed and washed in local linen weaving mills and dyed in German finishing companies. This is the long chain of people, often family businesses, who stand behind the oath seal. To this day, purchasing a timeless, confident textile remains a question of trust. Trust in the promise of the tried and tested oath hand seal.
