The flax plant is also extremely versatile. Every part of the flax plant has traditionally been used to create a worthwhile product – nothing is wasted, and production is cost effective. A common by-product of flax is Linseed Oil, which is great for wood preservation, especially in varnishes. Flax is resilient and can grow in poor soil, using far less water in its consumption than cotton. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation state that flax plants uses 13 times less pesticides than potatoes, but is only approximately 1% of the world’s apparel fibre consumption. Linen needs less pesticide and fertilizers when grown and produced than other plants. The process of producing the fabric itself has very little waste and can be done by using enzymes and bacteria.
