Linen represents 0.4% of the textile fibres used
worldwide. It is cultivated in Western Europe
on a wide coastal strip stretching from southern
Normandy to northern France, from Belgium to
the Netherlands: from Caen to Amsterdam.
Linen fibres are renowned for their high water
absorption capacity. A property that reflects the highly
hydrophilic nature of pectins, those compounds that
combine fibres with each other.
To guarantee 100% European traceability of finished products, spinners and weavers commit themselves to criteria concerning their production, but also their supplies.
