How can flax be a resource in a biocircular economy? How does the local production of a textile fibre for a local market work in the Netherlands? During this BlueCity Lab Fibre Club meet-up, Pascale Gatzen spoke with hosts Nienke Binnendijk and Arie Hooimeijer about how the Linen Project investigates and works towards reactivating a strong economic and ecological basis for small-scale local flax cultivation and linen production. They were joined by David Kasse of Vlas & Hennep.NL, who shared insight into the current flax production chain from his broad knowledge of this sector.
