The fiber is obtained from the stem of a plant, Linum Usitatissimum, which has few branches and small flowers with different colors ranging from white to dark blue that bloom just for one day.
Flax according to the ancients, is a gift that the human beings received from the gods and hence the symbolism that usually accompanies this fiber. Rare and difficult to process, flax remained for centuries a privilege reserved just for few. With the improvement of the production techniques and the spread of a certain prosperity, flax became a treasure, a dowry for certain families. In the collective imagination, flax still represents the purity, the perfume, the sunny early summer afternoons in Provence. Flax, with its crude aspect, is still associated to the gods.
Flax fiber has a shiny aspect, it presents a fresh and slippery touch. It is among the most resistant natural fibers due to the structure of its longitudinal fibers and the high cellulosic composition. Having hole fibers, it can absorbs a quantity of water equal to its dry mass, a peculiarity which makes it therefore also an excellent thermoregulator.
