      MATERIALS

      Cultivated primarily in cooler climates all over the world – from Western Europe to India and Pakistan – flax plant has a growing cycle of only 100 days.

      However, the journey from the humble flax seed to woven linen fabric is a laborious and complicated process, which explains why linen is considered a luxury item and comes at a higher price point compared to, for example, cotton.

      The linen is also a hardy, sustainable plant that is organically grown and naturally biodegradable. The manufacturing process uses up to 20 times less water than cotton or synthetic fabrics and linen is twice as durable as cotton.

       

          LINEN MANUFACTURING PROCESS

            1. Flax blooming season. Linen is typically sowed in March and harvested in July. During that time, the flax plant goes through a magical transformation with its peak – the ephemeral bloom when the whole field gets colored in sky blue blossoms for one day only.

            2. Flax harvest season. Once the bloom is over, the flax plant is harvested but unlike most other crops, it cannot be mowed – flax has to be pulled up by the roots to maximize the length of the fibers and preserve the full potential of the plant, which will later be used to make a variety of different products.

            3. Flax retting process. Harvested flax then goes through a process called retting, which means exposing it to moisture in order to separate the fiber from the stem. The flax plant is soaked in water until existing bacteria breaks down the pectin holding the fibers together – this is a risky business because under-retting burdens the separation of the fiber while over-retting weakens it.

            4. Flax scutching process. After retting, the plant goes through another process called scutching that separates the woody stem called shive from the raw material – the flax fibers: short coarse fibers are called tow and are used to make paper, twine, and rope, while the longer flax fibers called line are used to create linen yarn that goes into clothing, bedding, and other high-quality textile products.

            5. Linen spinning process. The next steps are spinning the linen fiber and weaving linen yarns into yards of fabric, which can then be bleached and/or dyed.
