While growing and being scutched in Europe, 80% of flax nowadays has to be exported to China to be combed, spun and woven before being reimported. This situation contradicts the sustainable growth of the fiber and the need for locally produced materials. By working directly with the scutched fibers, this project aims to present new aspects, tactilities and properties of linen, whilst encouraging and diversifying a local network of production, based in Normandy.
