Linen comes from the flax plant. Flax grows naturally and requires no additional water other than rainwater, making it a very eco-friendly fabric. Because it's a natural fiber, flax linen is recyclable and biodegrade. The whole flax plant can be used, leaving no waste. According to the European Confederation of Linen and Hemp, flax respects the environment and preserves the land. Very little energy is required to process flax. Linen yarn is inherently strong, which reduces the need for starching during spinning and weaving. The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation has positive effects on eco-system diversity as it allows for an “environmental pause”. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2 . linen is also naturally anti microbial.
