In this book linen artisans describe the making of linen, from fiber to fabric.
Flax is one of the strongest and most sustainable textile fibers in the world. It
takes months to grow the plants, spin a yarn from its fibers and finally weave
a fabric. Each of these steps requires a great deal of craftsmanship and skill to
produce high quality linen. The flax plant grows best in the north of France,
Belgium and the Netherlands. The people represented in this book are still
located in this historic region. Close to their roots, close to their history.
