Additional Information

We like to think of the Grid Linen Shorts as the blogger shorts. A garment worth putting on even if you get paid to f around on the internet in your underwear all day. Made from our beautiful Grid Linen, which is lightweight, breezy and has the wonderful ability to absorb moisture while staying dry to the touch. They have mesh lined pockets, a magnetic rear pocket closure and a comfortable elastic waistband with compression strap belt so they stay in place. Whether you're just trying to get halfway decent for the delivery guy or need a lightweight pair of lounge shorts to throw in your travel bag, these shorts can hang.
Linen has the strongest tensile strength of the plant fibers and is generally considered to be one of the oldest used for textiles. With its low static and pilling it easily weaves an open structure that lets air flow through the fabric. Linen also has the remarkable ability to absorb 20% of its weight of moisture while remaining dry to the touch.

We chose a box weave linen, its three dimensional structure maximizes the surface area of the linen fibers. It absorbs moisture better, dries faster and shrugs off sand and dirt better than a flat weave linen.

High quality linen gets softer and softer over time, and when cared for properly can be handed down through generations.

*A note on handling linen properly:

Linen has many times the lateral strength of cotton, which is why it was once used to make ropes; however it is significantly less flexible. In day-to-day use this doesn't make much difference, but in certain conditions, particularly those found in top loading washing machines, it can become a problem. So wash yours in a front loading washer on a gentle cycle and you should be all good.
