It’s not that outlandish to say linen’s popularity reached Biblical proportions. In fact, this fabric predates the Bible and was even woven in ancient Egypt.

Linen itself is created from the flax plant, which was abundant in the Middle East, so archaeologists have found firm evidence of the cloth dating back 5000 BC. It was a favourite among men of the cloth.

Flash forward a few thousand years—and countless heat waves—and linen’s popularity endures. It does not cling to the skin and dries quicker than most textiles, which also helps it cool down again. Like seersucker, it promotes—not inhibits—the circulation of air so it has a breezy feel.
