From seed to Flax 
****************
Textile flax has been grown in Europe since ancient times. Today the EU accounts 70% of production worldwide and has become the undisputed trade mark for Quality.
Sowing take place in early Spring and the flax reaches between 80 cm and 1m height  in a hundred days. The small blue flowers are delicate and very short-lived , just one day, during this fleeting moment ,a field of flax in full bloom , is magical and rare sight to behold .



Linen has been used since ancient times (8000 BC) It is the oldest textile fibre in the world.
European Linen is Ethical, since the working conditions and salaries of workers growing and processing flax are regulated. Is environmentally friendly require very little fertilizer and pesticides Transforming flax into linen is a natural and simple process. Lastly flax also yields many other derivatives, in the flax plant nothing goes to waste !


Caring your Linen:
****************


- It is preferable wash Linen with water 
- soap without brightener (soap acts better in soft water)
- act on stains still fresh 
- by hand or machine rinse Linen well to prevent oxidations stains.
- place delicate garments (with embroidery or fringes ) inside a pillow case before putting in washing machine
- gentle spin cycle.
- Iron while still damp to prevent creases 
- starching is not necessary , when ironed recovers its shape and brightness.


Common stains :
**************
1- Blood: cold water added ammonia
2- Coffee and tea: warm water added a few ammonia
3- Wine-fruit : fresh stain with salt and vinegar (or lemon juice) and rinse thoroughly
