Linen fabric – a fashionable it-piece since many years
Flax, which forms the basis for Linen fabric, is one of the oldest cultivated plants about which we know something. More than 5000 years of history lie on it and yet today it is more in demand than ever before. However, the path to this was not always free of obstacles.
Initially, this was due to the obvious economic advantages of cotton. Yarn production and weaving were not only easier with cotton, but also much faster – quantity was clearly more important than quality.
It was not until the 1970s that the beautiful material fought its way back into wardrobes, where synthetic materials had previously found their way - albeit at the price of being regarded as old-fashioned and too ecological. A lot has happened since.
