Flax is a crop which transcends time - grown in Britain since the Bronze Age - and is set for a renaissance as we seek to reduce the levels of plastic used and deposited into the environment.

Along with its multiple traditional uses in apparel, table and bedroom linen, furniture, sailcloth, cordage and more it is finding new uses in manufacturing in the growing bio-composite sector.
