Organic linen is made from flax, a natural raw material. Flax is a recyclable fibre that does not need irrigation and almost no chemical treatment. All parts of the plant are used, ensuring no waste. For flax cultivation and processing, Libeco worked with a group of growers from the Seine-et-Marne area of France, who have been cultivating organic flax and other organic crops for about a decade.
All fabrics in the Libeco Organic collection carry the GOTS label, a standard that is recognised worldwide for organic fibre certification.
