Here's what you need to know about Flax:
Flax is a natural plant fiber. It is a bast fiber, which means it comes from the stem of a plant. Linen is made out of flax, though sometimes the term “linen” is used incorrectly to label fabrics of other fibers that have a similar look and feel. While linen and flax are used interchangeably, flax can be found in other textiles as well, like lace and damasks. Flax is considered a more rare, high quality product and represents less than 1% of all textile fibers consumed worldwide.
In terms of sustainability, flax is often considered a preferred fiber with less harmful environmental impact. Organic flax is one of the most sustainable fibers you can use according to multiple sources, including the Made-By Environmental Benchmark for Fibers (which gives non-organic linen a “C” rating, while organic linen gets an “A” – the best possible rating). The cultivation of flax is the least water and energy intensive part of a linen garment’s lifecycle, while fiber extraction, material processing, and consumer use and care can have a much higher impact.
Two different kinds of flax are grown: flax for fiber, which is used to make linen textiles, and flax for seed, which is used to feed people and livestock. The majority of flax for fiber is still produced in Western Europe (France is the world leader), though most of it travels to China for textile processing. While linen is often used in high quality household textile products (which are often referred to as “linens”), more than 70% of linen is used in the manufacture of clothing.
Flax is the oldest fiber known to have been used by humans. Humans have used it for cloth since at least 8,000 BCE. In 2009, archeologists (funded by the American School of Prehistoric Research at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University) discovered flax fibers more than 34,000 years old in a cave in the Republic of Georgia. Some of the fibers were twisted, indicating they were used to make ropes or strings, while others had been dyed using local plants.
