Flax Pod

While it has been grown for almost 40,000 years, its cultivation in Normandy dates back to the 13th century. In flax, the pride of the Pays de Caux, the world’s leading exporter, everything is well worth taking (linum usitatissimum) from the root to the stem.

Our societies have relied on the many benefits of flax to feed, heal, wash, dress, build and decorate homes. Flax is one of the plants that most contributed to the development of European civilisation.
