The oldest traces of flax cultivation in Europe date back to about 4000 BC.
They were found in houses on stilts in Switzerland.
Linen is the ecological fibre par excellence, which does not require water and does not produce waste.
Flax provides seeds for animal feed, oil and fibre for textile production, mainly bed sheets. Together with cotton, it is also used as household linen for other high-quality wrinkle-resistant textiles, such as paper towels and kitchen towels.
