The sophisticated fabric is both effortless and comfortable. Our 100% European linen and linen blends are made to elevate your everyday.
100% PREMIUM LINEN SHIRTS
This warm weather essential is made from 100% European linen that has long fibers to give it a supple feel and slight sheen. It also takes colour incredibly well. The silhouette is tailored and we cut the body slightly shorter to look good on the days you prefer to leave it untucked.
In 100% European linen (known for the best linens worldwide), this is the essential summer shirt. It features a smooth and cool feel against the skin and because it is bound to be your wardrobe staple, we made it in several rich, saturated shades (one for every day of the week, perhaps).
LINEN BLEND OPEN COLLAR SHORT SLEEVED SHIRT

FAST FACTS ABOUT LINEN
In addition to its effortless everyday style, linen is a remarkable fabric thanks to its naturally sustainable and functional properties.
Linen is made from flax, which requires no irrigation to grow; rainwater is enough. In fact, if flax cultivation was replaced by cotton, 650 billion cubic meters of water would be used in the process. The flax plant is also a carbon sink, as it traps nearly 250,000 tonnes of CO2 every single year. The growing process also requires no GMO, no defoliant and only low fertiliser use.
Flax is also a zero-waste plant. Each part of the plant has its purpose: scutching tows can serve as raw material for paper or composite production, shives are ideal for manufacturing chipboards or for animal bedding and linseeds are transformed into oil.
Flax fibre is hollow on the inside and can absorb moisture well. In fact, linen fabric can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water! The fibre also releases moisture easily, which makes the fabric dry quickly.
Contrary to popular belief, linen clothing is a great choice for all seasons; not just summer. Linen is naturally thermoregulating, meaning it offers a cooling feeling in summer and insulating properties in winter.
Linen is a very durable fabric and therefore ideal for keeping up with your day-to-day, while staying supple and resistant without pilling or becoming distorted. It can last years and has a high resistance to wear and tear.
Linen is easy to care for. Hand washing, machine washing or dry cleaning: whatever suits you best.
France is the world's largest producer of flax. 85% of the world's production of scutched flax fibres comes from Europe, the result of close-proximity cultivation which is part of a well-conceived, eco-responsable, agricultural program. All UNIQLO’s flax fibres are sourced from Europe, which has a long history of producing high quality linen.
