This fabric is also one of the oldest and most expensive to produce. It has been around since ancient times and was used to wrap mummies of the pharaohs and royalties in Egypt. Linen fabric is quite expensive because processing flax fiber and weaving it into cloth is a long and laborious process.
When shipping pieces of linen clothing, they must be properly packed to avoid damage. Here are tips on how to properly pack and ship linen clothing.
While it is impossible to prevent linen clothing from wrinkling, properly folding it will minimize unsightly creases and folds. Individually wrap each piece in tissue and insert in a clear plastic bag to protect them from the elements such as dirt and moisture.
Place the wrapped linen apparel in a box lined with tissue paper, shredded paper or bubble wrap. Fill any remaining space with fillers to prevent the item from shifting.
Close the box and seal with packaging tape. Address and label the package and take to your local post office or shipping company.
