Green Credentials
Flax farming uses around 80% less pesticides that cotton farming. It does not require additional irrigation and is a renewable and rotative crop. Indeed, the skills and technologies involved in Flax production, cultivation and harvesting mean that there is no waste. By products produced include, Linseed Oil, Pulp used for Paper production and Shive which are flakes from the Flax used in insulation materials.

Further, the flax once fully growth is left in the field to the elements (sun and rain) so nature can take its' course allowing the fibres to be more easily extracted. Therefore, Linen does have vintage years like wine production and for the same reasons - weather.
