The common flax is a plant that grows well in the areas with a temperate climate but also adapts to more rigid and cold climates. Linen is one of the first plants to have been cultivated by man and does not require large intervention for its production; for this reason an ecological and eco-sustainable culture is satisfied. From linseed oil is obtained both oil and flour used in food but also in cosmetics and construction. From the linen shaft the fiber is obtained which results to have a fresh and slippery feel.
Linen is a very old fabric, the first findings date back to 8000 BC, and was very widespread as the various findings show. The fiber is very resistant and durable but also soft and flexible and therefore very valuable. The production of the fiber is very interesting, but it is very profitable, for this reason it has been supplanted by cotton.
The linen fiber still retains the charm of its long history and has no rivals in contact with the skin during the summer months. Linen is resistant to washing and the fabric with time seems to improve its quality.
