It grows with rainwater without irrigation, which saves groundwater and maintains a healthy ecosystem. The plant does not require hardly any plant-protection products.
Flax is one of the oldest textile fibers in the world. We use European linen yarn that is produced in Europe according to Öko-Tex standards. Our mill is certified Masters of Linen weaver. This gives a guarantee of 100% European traceability of the plant to the thread and the fabric.
