Linen is one of the oldest fabrics and the earliest evidence of it being manufactured dates back to Egypt, approximately 4,000 years ago. It is through trade that linen eventually reached Ireland. Once this fabric was filtered into England, it came to India during British Rule. Largely worn by wealthier British people, the fabric was eventually produced in India as well to cater to their needs.

Handling Linen Sarees:
Linen sarees also need pre-wash treatment before the first wash to lock the colors. Soak your linen saree in normal water for 10-15 minutes in normal water mixed with table salt.
Use mild liquid detergent to wash your linen saree in normal water. Wash the dark colored sarees separately.
Never starch your linen saree. It will lose its natural softness on starching.
Avoid hanging linen sarees for drying. Instead, you can spread the saree on a plain surface.
Always dry your linen saree under shade away from direct sunlight.
Linen sarees can be best ironed when they are slightly wet. Use the right temperature setting meant for Linen as per instruction on your iron.
As linen has no stretch, folding the sarees from the same crease repeatedly could lead to tearing of the fabric over time.
