Do All Fabric Stores Supply EUROPEAN FLAX® Certified Linen?
A lot of linen weaving mills and fabric stores tend to claim that their linen is made from European grown flax due to the demand for pure linen grown in Europe mainly France, Belgium and Netherlands.
How do we know if your linen is made from authentic EUROPEAN FLAX®?
Well, the only way to ensure that your linen is made from European grown flax is to ask if your supplier’s processing mill carry the current and valid European Flax® certification from CELC. If the supplier mill does not carry the certification, it may mean that the linen may not be authentic European flax.
“The European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC) is the only European agro-industrial organization federating all the stages of production and transformation for linen & hemp”. You may read more about CELC and its certification process by visiting http://news.europeanflax.com/
