The Linen Road takes us through history, emotions and beauty along an open timeline as the fibre of civilization for 38,000 years. 

New scenarios and growth impulses emerge while fashion wants to change rhythm and styles are no longer identity indicators.

A responsible creative recovery towards a dynamic balance: linen as material of choice, safe, durable with a low environmental impact combines with functional solutions and blends for well-designed, comfortable and resilient collections.

Linen Trends for fashion textiles by Elementi Moda for CELC


[]Precious images of primordial past tracing the origin of Linen highlight a suspended time and timeless materials.

The colour of Linen, raw by nature, recalls the eternal base from which new proposals arise.

The handcrafted trend loses rusticity. The naturalness of linen is emphasized by controlled imperfections: elaborated mix of fibres, roving yarns, mélange colours, micro-macro textures and stripes.
[]The classicism of the Ancient Greece inspires an illusory simplicity, ensuring comfort and aesthetic pleasure. 
The universal blues introduce an essential low-profile atmosphere of high quality. 
The familiar aspects of tonal micro geometrics, graded blue checks, striped gauzes, fine linen denim, blue pigment dye become durable timeless fabrics and interpret an androgynous rigorous style.
[]Projects arise at the boundary line of creativity, art, fashion, design. Joining past and present we are projected into the future.
The range of blue green, harmonized by violet, is expression of refined freshness and formal harmony. 
The contrast of mat and shine stands out in linen-silk shirting, tonal linen-silk herringbone, compact lightweight stretch linen, fine linen cashmere blends for a smooth touch.
[]The historical memory of the Ancient Egypt inspires inventions to promote contemporary and conscious materials. 
The range of greens vibrates of acidic tones and deep nuances stolen from the rich vegetation of Nile. It highlights the desire of revenge of an abused nature.

Irregular space-dyed chenille yarn, shot shirting checks, jerseys in linen blends, pique relief in linen-cotton, tonal Jacquard, marled fine basketweave in mix of fine and coarse yarns.
[]A path along the “linen road” crossing Pompei, inspiration source for products with a strong aesthetic value. 

Warm and burnt tones, reddish and golden shades are an invitation to positivity, to an emotional and feelgood design.  
Shirting stripes with printed yarn show polychromatic combinations. Compact linen with shiny coating, precious blends with a touch of gold, geometric tubular weave, loose honeycomb weave.

Thought goes to Flanders, historic lands where the most precious, fine and shiny flax fibre is cultivated.  
The luminous yellow in all its variations is the vigorous, energizing, nourishing element.  

The golden patina, the warm brightness give value to textured monochromatic fabrics. Fine linen with gold print, marled yarn with a touch of metal, bouclé relief stripe, waxed water-repellency, tonal gauze.

[]The current present leads us to the capitals of fashion. Milan instills its creative energy into sophisticated and unique products.  

The range of vibrant reds fades in a delicate pink and plays contrast with a saturated burgundy. 

The printed florals or pictorial designs tailor the textures in light fluid linen. Shiny and matte linen-silk, laser-cut linen weaves, bright linen and banana fibre blends, raised stripes, honeycomb jersey, lacquered effects interpret a seductive style. 
[]In Paris the Haute Couture is protagonist and dares complex, sensual and glamorous materials. 
The fuchsia pink of Schiaparelli leads the game together with delicate pink and traditional violet of impressionist painting.  
Lightness, transparency, movement characterize the 100% Linen voile, floral jacquards, glittering yarns, iridescent prints, shiny twill, compact satin.
