Neu Arrivals: Introducing Organic Linen
We are thrilled to introduce our capsule organic clothing collection of gorgeously natural linen. Woven from the flax plant, linen has been used for thousands of years and is known for being one of the most eco-friendly fabrics in the world. Read on to find out all the reasons we are loving this incredible fabric.
We chose this incredible fabric for the spring and summer season because it's in line of our ethos sustainable fabrics sourced from nature. There are lots of reasons why linen is a great sustainable choice for your wardrobe, from organic dresses to super-soft sleepwear. Here are some of the reasons we love it!
- Flax linen is one of the strongest fibers in the world which means your clothing will last for years and years
- The flax plant grows naturally and requires no additional water other than rainwater
- Because it’s a natural fiber and sourced from plants, flax linen is recyclable and biodegradable
- Linen fabrics are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness so they're perfect for hot and humid weather
- The whole flax plant can be used, leaving no waste
- Our linen collection is lint-free and becomes softer the more it is washed
- Linen fabrics can be recycled into paper and insulation materials for the many industries including cars!
We have chosen the highest quality organic linen fabrics and use GOTS and OEKO certified dyes. Linen is a great eco-friendly but luxurious alternative to cotton and only requires rainwater to cultivate. The flax plant can be harvested in areas that are unsuitable for food crops.
The collection features soft and relaxed styles in neutral hues - sand, white and rose pink.

It’s a cold day in NYC as we send out our email questionnaire to our latest Neu Woman, the fabulous Emily Doyle, so we’re in need of a little of her warmth. While all Neu Nomad stories are special, Emily’s relationship to our brand has always been more than skin deep.
2022 is the year something shifted. It might be our imagination, but this year felt different. This was the year it felt that sustainability in our society really took off. It was certainly the year of monumental changes in the way our governments discussed and legislated against the climate crisis, and we saw activism, peaceful protests and rebellion in 2022. Change is coming. We’re entering 2023 standing on the cusp of a new era.
When you think of Santa coming down the chimney in Christmas-lore, he’s a jolly, portly old man wearing a cozy red suit and scoffing mince pies. Yuletide, and the seasonal celebrations of those around the world, is a time for family, over-indulgence and presents-galore.
