Let Me Linen Vanilla Dress

The story behind. From seed to garment.

Honest.

Because the story matters.

We believe that you deserve to know the story behind your ADVA piece because, in the end, you are the one who creates its story with us. #wearingADVA

Fiber Origin

Linen fabric is made from a flax fiber. Flax season starts in March, when the seeds are planted, after 100 days, usually between June and July, the harvesting begins. The most important part of the process starts - retting - starts in August and nature plays a huge part. 

Flax Origin: North France and Belgium

Textile Manufacturing

After the harvesting, the fiber needs to go through scutching and hackling. The quality of the fiber is assessed manually. 

The process of weawing and spinning takes place in Belgium. In mills that run on renewable green energy.

Fabric Origin & Our Supplier

Next, the linen fabric is fed through a machine where shearing blades remove the last pills and impurities. This is a required step for a perfect finish. The shearing dust is collected and upcycled. It can be used for paper or insulation production.

Supplier: Libeco, Belgium (from seed to finish fabric) Company with a tradition since 1858.

Each of the ADVA pieces is designed in our London studio. The entire process, first thoughts, mood boards and samples, take place in there. 

Our studio runs on renewable energy, to minimise the environamental impact.
