FROM FIELD TO FIBRE,

FROM YARN TO FABRIC

The best flax in the world is grown in Belgium, Northern France and the Netherlands. This region’s local soil and climate, where sun and rain alternate, are ideal for growing a fibre that is known worldwide for its quality. Belgian flax and linen are extraordinary regional products just like Belgian chocolate and Belgian beer.

Did you know that flax is one of the most sustainable fibres in the world? There is no waste material as all parts of the plant are used ánd the fibre is biodegradable. A perfect resource for a more sustainable future!

In June, many flowering flax fields adorn the Belgian countryside. The local expertise was passed from generation to generation and the industry is still flourishing today. Belgium counts 2000 farms that grow flax, approximately 50 companies that process the fibre and 7 linen weaving mills.
