  • 100% linen

    We produce our very own 'Nanga Mai Linen' using only Euroflax long-line linen yarn . We want you to feel the difference on your skin, that's why Nanga Mai Linen is carefully woven in plain weave with 26 threads in weft and 24 in warp in order to meet the highest quality standards of linen craftsmanship. Nanga Mai Linen is pre-shrinked prior to the cutting process thus lowering the typical shrinkage of linen shirts from 2% to 0.4%. The manufacturing process of the yarn is subject to 4 quality control steps at different stages of the weaving procedure.

  • Hand-made in Italy

    Our linen shirts are certified with the stamp "Hand Made in Italy". We weave our Nanga Mai Linen in traditional mills in the region of Como, Northern Italy. The finished linen is sent to Rome where our local craftsmen proceed to retracing, cutting and stitching the yarn into the final shirt. Everything is made by hand. We invest in high quality processes in order to be compliant with the World Fair Trade Organisation's directives to create opportunities for economically disadvantaged producers, commitment to non discrimination, gender equity, respect for working conditions and the environment.

  • Pursuit of happiness

    Linen is the material of choice for warm weather. Since it is a premium yarn it has always been used for rather elegant apparel. For this reason linen shirts are the perfect outfit for summer elegance. Nanga Mai is born as Italian Masters of Linen, but being Linen experts means we are Summer experts too! And what is summer if not the happiest time of the year? Nanga Mai embodies the mediterranean lifestyle whereby Happiness is first and foremost. Summer deserves fresh and colourful, yet classy and elegant outfits. Because happiness is a lifestyle you choose to wear every morning.
