How European Linen is Made from Flax

In this age of synthetic fabrics, let's take a few moments to honor the making of linen, which is made from flax. This video was produced by the Belgian Linen company, Libeco.

European linen is made through processes of reeping, collecting, scutching, heckling, spinning, weaving and finishing, all of which are included in this short film.
