Linen is a sustainable fabric made from flax fibers. Ecological and easy to maintain, linen is a fiber with multiple qualities. It’s good thermo regulator, resistant, biodegradable, thermoregulator, absorbent , and breathable textile. And 80% of the world’s production of scutched flax fibers are originated from Europe, and France is the world leader.
European Confederation of Flax and Hemp – CELC, is the only European organization in agro-industry, grouping and federating all stages of production and process of flax and hemp in 14 European countries.
The mission based on the innovative and environmental qualities of its fibers is guaranteed by EUROPEAN FLAX® and MASTERS OF LINEN® as the traceability marks and it’s promoted among professionals and consumers thanks to the J’AIME LE LIN campaign also known as We Are Linen, I Love Linen, Amo Il Lino / #sololino.
On Wednesdays at 12.30pm (GMT+2), We Are Linen is live on Instagram via Zoom with fashion and textile professionals in French language.

To know more about Linen:
Why European Linen is the best in the world? European Linen comes from Flax grown in a wide coastal band of Western Europe stretching from France through to Belgium and the Netherlands. The cultivation cannot be relocated or replicated due to a unique combination of European environmental factors: a natural damp ocean climate, flax’s low thermal density, and a rich soil. These unique climactic conditions produce long, strong fibres which allow the flax to reach up to 1 meter in height.
Below the Belgian Linen brand, Libeco will explain it in English.
