Pascale Gatzen speaks on behalf of The Linen Project during a panel discussion hosted by Ellen van den Adel as part of this Reflow event at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. The programme posed the question: “Are biobased materials such as hemp, flax fibre, locally produced linen and organic cotton a solution for the polluting practices of the textile industry? We used these materials in the past, but synthetic materials such as polyester and elastane have certainly gained the upper hand in fast fashion. Can we go back to high-quality, biobased clothing, which is also easy to recycle?”
