Growing of flax is a very sustainable process. Flax is grown with far less water and pesticide than cotton. Flax, the plant from which linen fabric is made, is also extremely versatile. Nothing from the plant is wasted. Traditionally, flax had been used to produce linen fabrics, linseed oil, twines, ropes, and even briquettes for heating. Flax, if untreated with dye, is fully biodegradable.
We are paying tribute to harmless flax cultivating and have created our own “Sustainable production and work policy”:
The lowest possible CO2 footprint – almost all our fabrics are woven in Lithuania and surrounding countries. Finishing, sewing, and other processes are made within 100 km from our warehouse, production facility, and head office. It means there is not so much CO2 emitted during the production’s moving around.
Waste minimization – all fabrics are cut carefully and economically, so there are almost no leftovers after cutting. If special product design produces some leftovers, we collect them and sell them as assorted linen tapes and remnants, or give away to craft artists who produce dolls, quilting, and other handmade products from linen.
Help your community – we are sponsoring several organizations and cultural events that are important for us and our community. We support “Red Noses Clowndoctors” – an arts organization that brings humor and laughter to hospitalized people in need of joy; Non-Profit Organization “Artnews.lt” – an independent online magazine specializing in contemporary Lithuanian art, art book publisher, and organizer of a conference for contemporary art specialists “Three Uses of the Knife”.
Repair, reuse, recycle – this name speaks for itself. If something breaks in our production or office daily life, we try to repair it. If someone doesn’t need something, we try to find a new purpose for that thing and if we have to throw away something – we recycle it.
