The Benefits of Natural Cotton & Linen Over Synthetic Materials

The Benefits of Natural Cotton & Linen Over Synthetic Materials

Cotton has been used around the world since prehistoric times, with some cotton samples dating back all the way to 5000 BC! Linen, not to be confused with cotton bed linens, is a textile made from flax fibers that has been used around the world for thousands of years.

While nylon and other oil-based synthetic fibers have grown in popularity, natural fibers can't be beat. At Victor Custom Shirts, we use 100% natural cotton and linen in all of our shirts.

Here are some of the main reasons we prefer using natural fibers over synthetic ones:

Natural Fibers are Hypoallergenic: Cotton and linen are resistant to dust mites. People with skin allergies, sensitive skin and asthma can confidently wear cotton and linen without putting their health at risk.

Perfect for Warm Weather: Cotton and linen are extremely breathable. Natural fibers absorb sweat and moisture, helping you feel comfy and cool on hot days. This is also why cotton and linen are both travel favorites.

Powerful Durability: Cotton shirts are super durable and last for years. After all, who wants to buy clothes they can only wear for one season?

They Don't Hold Onto Scents: Natural fibers are great because they don't hold onto odors like synthetic fibers. This means you can wear them longer with less washing.

Form Fitting Not Clinging: Cotton and linen emphasize your physique without clinging to your body.

Great for the Environment: Both cotton and linen are biodegradable and renewable products, meaning they are easy to recycle and great for the environment.

Easy to Care For: Choose either a cold and gentle machine wash or gentle hand wash and cotton shirts will retain their beauty for the long-term. Full cleaning instructions here
