Lemuel MC is a brand with a story to tell about linen, ethics, transparency and longevity.
Founder Marta is a passionate advocate for a more sustainable way of life, stripping away complexity and working exclusively with linen and what linen already exists wherever possible.
Linen, layers, pleats, pockets and poppers; the signature DNA that gives Lemuel MC ageless appeal… Linen for its sustainabilit6y credentials, layering for year round wear and multiple styling options, pleats for form and structural detail, and metal poppers for their infinite recycling capabilities, easy wear and detachment for recycling… everything carefully considered. Linen is a woefully underestimated fabric that Lemuel MC exclusively shines the spotlight on… Flax from which linen is made is a brilliant crop, incredibly resilient meaning minimal pesticide intervention, and able to grow using far less water than cotton (6.4 litres vs 2,700 litres for cotton). The entire plant can be woven into fibre or used meaning minimal waste whilst also being biodegradable and recyclable, incredibly strong and breathable with natural thermal properties, the fibre is biodegradable and recyclable. It is a chameleon of a fabric which can compete with wool, denim, cotton and silks without the associated environmental impacts and humanitarian impacts.
All Lemuel MC pattern are original, created through organic development and finalised using what already exists; charity shop wallpaper finds that provide the required materials structure but remove the use of new materials, treading lightly on the planet. Hand drawn, hand stamped labels created from offcuts, telling the story and love of linen sit alongside care labels that really care and remind you to care too…
