Alliance for European Flax-linen and Hemp


Linen has been dressing mankind for over 38,000 years. Innovative and creative, it has survived the centuries by adapting to the needs of the times, and now meets all environmental concerns. Grown in Western Europe - and largely in France, the world's leading producer - Flax is transformed in textile fibre thanks to the expertise of flax farmers and dyers. It is also used in the manufacture of high-performance bio-sourced composites.
