Fine Linen - Europe's superfibre
For thousands of years linen was the preferred summer textile for the nobles. The rise of cotton and polyester has dominated fashion at the expense of the less affordable fine linen - and mother nature.
It's time to revive the oldest textile of mankind. There are good reasons for it: It's natural, sustainable and keeps you cool in summer.
Faros Linen was built with the objective to make choice easier for men. To offer a shirt you’d want to wear all summer long for any occasion. Whether you go to the beach, a rooftop party, a wedding or a meeting - it’s both elegant and casual.
We use only the best natural materials and focus on real craftmanship - all made in Europe. True sustainability and fair wages for all involved are a given to us.Our story
There is linen. There is fine linen. And there is fine linen from Cotonificio Albini - a member of Masters of Linen. We looked around Europe and were amazed by the silky softness and airiness without being too see-through.
100% made in Europe. 100% sustainable and natural.
Mother of Pearl (MOP) Buttons
MOP made from Pinctada Maxima shells have traditionally been the choice in the luxury shirt segment.
Our buttons come from Bottonoficio Padano in Italy. The shells are a by-product of shell farms supplying the jewelery industry with pearls.
100% sustainable and natural.
One year to craft the best fit.
It took us quite some time to find a modern fit to the body and yet keeping the airy feeling that's so typical to linen.
We've all been there. You're bending down while you're sunglasses are hanging in your shirt - and they fall.
So we thought about how to fix it and came up with the first sunglass holder on a shirt. Open the top two buttons and slide your glasses into the hidden holder below the third button.
"Never thought linen makes such a difference in summer. Great shirt and beautiful buttons."
"I'm in awe with the fabrics. They really stand out and are incredibly soft for such a natural material."
"I love apparel that's both sustainable and great to wear. And the sunglass holder actually works."
