Frequently asked questions

general

Our founders are two beautiful Lithuanian women, Vaida and Indrė. They were tired of chasing trends and wanted to fully embrace the idea of sustainability. Year 2016 was when they started making the very first models of Son de Flor’s iconic Classic Dress with a Peter Pan Collar. And so their dream continues to live on until this day..

If you want to know more about us, visit the “Our Story” page.

“Son de Flor” is a Spanish phrase and it translates to “Sound of Flower” - something whose origin comes from flowers. It is directly related to the conception of Son de Flor’s brand - our clothing is made from linen, which is derived from the plant of flax.

All About Linen

During photo shoots, our photographers try to do their best to picture products as closely to real-life colors as possible. However, slight differences may occur from time to time.

Not always. As linen can be called an “alive” material, its color and texture is not always the same. The outcome of the fabric highly depends on the conditions that the flax plants were grown in. Therefore it is a natural material, and can not always be the exact same.

Please read more about linen here.

Twill fabric is heavier than plain weave linen with a more structured form that is why colder weather is much suitable for twill linen clothing. The fabric is marked by its distinct diagonal pattern. Also, the Twill Linen material has more wrinkle and stain resistance than regular Linen.

Read more about it here.

Yes, there is the Son de Flor’s Linen Color Catalog available for order.

We have a blog post available for you to read on this topic - "How to Wash Linen?"

That is entirely for you to decide. We do have a blog post dedicated to this topic - "How to Iron Linen Clothes?"

Sustainability

Most of the manufacturers use Retting for dying linen garments nowadays. Read about this technique more in our "What Color is Linen?" blog post.

To answer shortly, yes. It is a fabric made from the flax plant and is entirely natural. Read more in our "How Sustainable is Linen?" blog post.
