Linen and it's importance throughout history
Linen comes from the Flax plant, which has been used for thousands of years. The technical name for this plant is "Linus ussitatíssimum". This plant grows in humid and clay soils and is sown in autumn. The main areas of flax cultivation are located in Belgium, France, Germany and Spain.
The fabric was one of the first to be used, even before wool and gradually became more prominent throughout history. It is considered the first vegetable fibre and has been used by man for centuries, starting from the Neolithic to the present.
Advantages of flax
The main characteristic of flax is its great ability to absorb moisture. It is one of the most natural fibres with a centuries old tradition. It offers a resistance and durability over time that makes it stand out as a desirable material in both bedding as well as textile manufacturing in general. Flax is considered one of the earliest vegetable fibres that exist and was the first to gain acceptance in the textile industry. Linen is also an ideal fabric for people suffering from allergies, as the linen absorbs moisture and prevents allergens.
