Flax is a plant that grows naturally, it is gentle on the land. It does not require irrigation during the growing process.

The currently used dew retting method frees the fibers from its wooden stem in a natural way. The industrial processes of spinning and weaving have very little impact on the environment. Libeco’s weaving mill operates carbon neutral.

All parts of the flax plant are used, there is no waste. Linen products are 100% biodegradable or recyclable.
