The return to basics, in the service of manufacturing a garment that is just as essential: nature and its magnificent resources are the engine of our creativity, respect for its balance motivates our choices of raw materials.
Natural elegance and durability
Entirely produced from natural fibers of animal or plant origin, the fabrics used at LILI + HENRY reflect the convictions that guide us.

In the same spirit, the dyes used to color our scarves do not contain any toxic, irritating or allergenic products.
For their texture, their unique quality and their durability, merino wool, linen and hemp are the standard bearers of our creations, focused on slow fashion and the making of timeless clothing.
It was Napoleon's favorite: the wool of merino, sheep originating from Spain, has that little something royal. Of great finesse, it is recognized for its softness and whiteness, heritage of the purity of this sheep breed.

Cultivated by men for more than 30,000 years, flax has gone through the ages, sometimes in the form of oil, sometimes in the form of textile used to make useful objects, fabrics and clothing. Incomparably strong, its durable, entirely plant-based textile fibers stand the test of time. Extracted from the stem of the plant by maceration, linen fiber is synonymous with comfort, freshness and resistance. Its fluid, airy, supple and light fabric gives the clothes made from it a distinctive elegance.
Hypoallergenic, thermoregulatory and biodegradable, it comes from a plant grown with very few inputs, pesticides or weedkillers, making it an undeniable eco-responsible choice. Harvested from root to stem, flax production also results in no waste. Italian-milled, the linen we use in our creations gives freedom of movement and a timeless look to LILI + HENRY scarves and scarves.
