"Metis" is the French word for a beautiful fabric that is a blend of linen and cotton. Although it can be stiff when it is new, it softens with laundering but retains its extraordinary strength like linen does. It combines the best features of both fabrics. It's comfortable, breathable and natural as well as hard-wearing and beautiful!
