Plain weave of GOTS-certified organic linen in Flax colour

A sturdy fabric from 100% organic linen, with a distinct character and woven in a plain weave. This colour 'Flax' is a unique and natural colour created only by the natural interplay of sun, rain and earth during the retting process. The colour is not obtained by dyeing and therefore contains no chemical residues. It also means that colour differences between lots are possible, due to the colour of the natural fibre. Also note that this natural colour fades away by each washing.
With a weight of 495 g/m2 this fabric is perfect for interior design (plating, curtains) as well as for making bags. The flax from which this linen was produced, was grown in Europe and processed there.

SUSTAINABLE LINEN

Linen is considered to be one of the most sustainable textiles known. The flax plant doesn’t require irrigation during growth and even when it is grown conventionally it needs little or no treatment with herbicides or pesticides. Linen is a natural product, it is 100% biodegradable and recyclable and feels very nice on the skin.

Today, flax is also very much a ‘European’ plant in the sense that France and Belgium are the leading flax producting countries in the world. These countries, to which the Netherlands may be added, can bow on a long tradition which was made possible by ideal climatic conditions and soils. More than 80% of the world production is European, with nearly 75.000 acres under cultivation annually.
