Why we now use 100% French Flax Linen
Where is it from?
Linen is woven from the flax plant which is then harvested and spun into fabric. Our signature flax is sourced from registered farmers in France. France and some other parts of Europe are known to have the most ideal growing conditions for flax, therefore producing the most superior flax fibres and creating a high-quality linen – the exact reason we now source from there for our clouds!
Proving comfort all year round, linen is an effortlessly luxurious fabric that contains natural temperature regulating qualities and adjusts as the body’s temperature does; becoming lighter and cooler in summer, and warm and insulating in winter. You can see the natural strands of yarn in your linen fabric, and because of this delicate weave the open structure lets air flow through the fabric. Linen can also absorb 20% of its weight in moisture while remaining dry to touch, feeling incredible for your bub to lounge!
Easy to care for
Linen is the strongest fabric of the plant fibres and is 30% thicker and stronger than cotton. This makes it super durable, long lasting and an amazing investment for daily use of your Bubba Cloud®. As it has that naturally distinctive “lived in” look, it makes it easy to care for, clean and dry. Simply remove your Bubba Cloud cover, throw it in the wash and be ready for its quick-drying properties to make washing a breeze (even without a breeze!).

Linen is for life and relaxes with every wash, turning buttery soft and feeling more luxurious as time goes on. It feels amazing on the skin, providing the utmost comfort for your bub to snuggle and lounge in. It also holds hypoallergenic properties so is safe for bub’s new skin, or anyone with allergies.
Sustainably sourced & no nasties
You’ll also love that our linen covers are sustainably sourced, and environmentally friendly with French flax requiring less water and reduced energy than most other fibres making it a more friendly option for both you, your bub and the environment.
