OUR MATERIALS

Linen is a noble natural textile processed trough old techniques still governed by natural forces and carried out with enduring respect for the environment

Linen

Linen is the most used fabric in Ninaleuca collections: it’s versatile, feminine and 100% natural. Since ancient times linen, has been viewed as a symbol of divine purity, with beneficial properties. Nowadays linen is the only natural textile produced in Europe, thanks to the ideal conditions found in northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands. The delicate pale blue flower of the flax plant blooms for just one day, while the textile fiber comes from the robust stalks of the plant. The stalks are then dried and processed, using techniques that have been improved over the centuries, but are still governed by natural forces, and carried out with enduing respect for the environment. Linen is one of the most resistant fabrics that exist thanks to the cellulose component that strengthens its fibres. The not too tight weave makes the linen fabric breathable, light and cool to the touch. It has insulatingthermoregulating and moisture-absorbing properties, making it an ideal fiber for both clothing and household linen. Being a natural fiber, it is hypoallergenic – therefore it does not irritate the skin and does not attract dust – and 100% sustainable, biodegradable and recyclable. At NinaLeuca this precious fabric is   sourced from the best Italian mills as Canapificio e Linificio Italiano, whose row material comes from European provenience.

COTTON

Cotton is used mainly as yarn to wave the intricate, geometrical or floral, loom made patterns wich embellish Nina Leuca creations, these patterns are used as inserts for the bust part of the dresses, a part called pettorina, accordingly with designer personal revisitation of ancient costumes of Salento folklore. The fabric is sourced from the local weavers, who supply themselve from America or India.

HEMP

Hemp is one of the most enviromental friendly fabrics in the world. Its cultivation does not require chemicals, controls soil erosion and produce oxygen

In Ninaleuca collections hemp is more marginal compared with linen and   it’s used when it’s required a certain rough, but distinctive hand feel. Hemp is a very ancient, natural  fiber , extracted from the herbaceous plant of the same name of the Cannabis sativa species, a plant that flourishes in areas with temperate climates, such as Italy. It  t became out of fashion in the fifties with  the up raising of synthetic fibers, but it has been re-discovered and valorized  recently  with the    increased interest for sustainability, moreover considering that is reputed one of the less impactful of natural fibers, not requiring much water and being resistant to  parasite attacks, which means less chemical substances to make it grow
