Flax in the news!

ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) , one of the largest public broadcasters in Germany, has turned its cameras on to the world of flax production to highlight flax’s climate friendliness alongside its age-old utlity as a fibre of superior comfort and durability.

Even if you don’t have the German, the short video is valuable as a good overview of the steps from field to fabric while the sight of how a pair of jeans fares after six months in a compost heap is unforgettable.
