Thu, 2021-12-02

Here at Her Velvet Vase, your one-stop platform to shop for women’s clothing online in Singapore, we provide a range of apparel in varied designs that you ladies will come to love. 

And just like our designs, the materials we choose have been long thought out to only provide the best - some of these include ribbed knit and polyester. Even so, we are big on linen too and have been expanding our line of clothing to include this superior material.

But you may also be wondering: What exactly is so good about linen? Well, we are here to answer all your doubts with these reasons why we love linen. 


Nothing feels worse than seeing your favourite piece of clothing disintegrate due to wear and tear, even if it is only natural as time goes by. Luckily, with linen, the process is slowed down since it is one of the world’s strongest natural fibres and is said to be more durable than cotton. This also means your clothing will not go out of shape with washes, but rather, becomes softer and even more comfortable on your skin. When buying dresses online, look out for those made using linen material and it will help you to save more money in the long run. 

Easy to maintain

Although linen is durable, giving it the appropriate care is also vital in increasing its lifespan. However, there is no need to fret as it is extremely easy to maintain the material. All you have to do is machine wash it in cold water with detergent and hang it to dry. Take note to stay away from bleach or any whitening detergents to prevent weakening the fibre.

Linen is a breathable material with hollow fibres that allow more airflow around your body, as compared to other materials so the chances of moisture building up are reduced. It is also highly absorbent, helping you to feel cool and dry all day long without having to worry about awkward sweat patches, especially in sunny Singapore’s weather. 

This also makes linen a great material for office wear so you never have to dread walking to the office in this sweltering heat drenched in sweat. 

Very versatile

Certain materials are not really appropriate for all occasions, such as leather jackets not being suitable for the office setting. But with linen, you can rest assured that it brings you from work to play effortlessly - one of the biggest reasons why we love using it for women’s clothing. It is classic, elegant and romantic all in one, making it a versatile must-have in any ladies’ wardrobe. 

For instance, our Bindi Linen Ruched Cropped Top is perfect for a ladies’ night out while the Casablanca Linen Belted Jacket is just right for office wear.



Linen is a sustainable material made from flax plant fibres and the plant itself uses less water consumption than cotton. When left untreated, linen is 100% biodegradable, which means it is a lot kinder to mother nature. This is also why certain linen clothing come in colours such as off white, grey and tan, as those are their natural shades. 

Her Velvet Vase has a wide variety of women’s clothing made from linen for you to shop from online, so stop hesitating and start experiencing the benefits of this lovely material for yourself. Shop our linen range or newest collections now.
