NOUVELLE VAGUE is a bed linen in 100% linen cultivated, scanned, combed, woven and dyed in France. Our linen, a very long and beautiful fiber, goes through a bath of pure water, a real machine wash without any chemical product, the time to purify it of its production dust, to let the fibers take their place and soften, the fabric to let go without too much flippancy.
After a blow of iron for even more flexibility, ensuring a clean and fresh aspect of a linen just returned from an afternoon in the sun, NOUVELLE VAGUE is ready to envelop you in well-being. From this natural process is born a wonderful texture: soft without being worn, casual without being too wrinkled and naturally soft. .

An activist product
We define our linen as pure thanks to the majority of the operations which are carried out in France. Our impact on the territory is so direct that we want it to be beneficial and fair.
We consider flax as one of the most legitimate and ecological fibers. It operates in a virtuous circle. Climatic and hypoallergenic , linen linen contributes to your well-being, as the flax plant contributes to enriching the soils that welcome it, it does not require watering, fertilizer or pesticides. Its by-products are a concentrate of nature: all the elements from flax are used. From seed to straw, there is no residue
Its production is local over most of its chain, which further limits its carbon footprint and consequently increases its sustainable value and its social and economic contribution in our territory, France.
The linen is then woven in the Vosges, dyed in the north and made by us. All these steps guarantee a low carbon footprint and real care of the material by our services.
We are citizens and consumers , our consumption choices are our real weapons to take care of Tomorrow.
