You read that correctly — water-resistant linen is real and a fabric breakthrough that we couldn’t be more excited about. While pure linen is hypoallergenic, cooling and breathable, our premium blended version, sourced from one of the world’s foremost textile mills, offers all these same exceptional features and more.
The Breakthrough Tech
Made from a mix of linen and polyester, this combination of fibers gives the fabric greater resiliency so that it can be coated with water-repelling sealant. That means it still feels ultra-soft and pliant to the touch, however, is swimmable, resists water-log when wet and dries in practically no time.
Pair one of our Water Resistant Linen Camp Shirts with a matching set of trunks — the solids and curated prints are intended to coordinate and work off one another, perfectly. The fabric will also look great opposite our Stretch Chambray, Towel Terry and pure Linen assortment.
Ease of Care
It doesn’t take much to keep our water-resistant linen looking its best. Simply wash by hand in cool water with mild detergent and hang dry. Although wrinkling is a desirable, natural characteristic of linen, iron on low heat if the need ever arises.
