The History of the Flag
As early as the Stone Age, flax could be processed in Europe, though most of which were used for things like ropes. fishing nets and the like.
Clothes weren't so developed at the time. Hardly anyone thought about the tablecloth, not to mention the napkin. In ancient Egypt, people began to dress in beautiful, cool linen.
Flax was the only material allowed in priestly clothing. and the mummies were wrapped in fine linen, many of which are still preserved.
From Egypt, knowledge spread over Babylon, which in ancient times was the centre of the "hearing industry", through Greece to the Roman Empire and further up in Europe. In the Roman Empire, in ancient times, there were large spindles of flax, for example. Ravenna and Vienne, who were under strict control of the 'procuratores linificiorum', which says something about the meaning of the the material is added. In the Nordic countries we have been able to cook flax at least since the Bronze Age.
Deep into the 16th. Century hearing was strained to a goldsmith, a practical tool, Which one can still see Oriental women mastering virtuosity. About 1530 the spinning wheel came and further accelerated the production of flax. Earworking was a craftsmanship for a long time. When the machines arrived in the late 1700s, the worst competitor of the ear came cotton. Better machines came, which were also suitable for the hearing industry. In 1805 Joseph Marie Jacquard constructed his epoch making machine for pattern weaving, which among other things gave the old one, fine damasking new opportunities.
The flax has had fierce competition from simpler and cheaper materials, and more than once it has been thought, that it would disappear completely. The quality and aesthetic value of the flax have proved to survive all "news", including the synthetic of recent years. Bree. Now it looks like, that listen is entering a new age of greatness - a world on its way back to quality thinking and beautiful things. Flax is an unprecedented material - in skilled professional hands.
The long fiber of flax is suitable for weaving, and its use can be traced back nine thousand years. In the 18th century there were several famous Nordic damask gardens and the blue-flowered flax fields were breathtakingly beautiful. in the country. Eventually, cotton took over as the most common textile fibre, and the needy linen ended up in the shade. Today, flax is no longer grown in the Nordic countries, except to a limited extent. But listeners have had a renaissance. The awareness of nature has gained a strong foothold and more and more people appreciate the tradition and the uniqueness of the flax characteristics.
The ear fiber has extreme strength and suction. The substance is fast drying and repellent. If you spill liquid on the substance, it is absorbed immediately. Linen wipes are excellent in the kitchen to dry glass and give silver and crystal a beautiful shine. Hearing also feels nice cool to the skin.
Washing and care
Flax textiles should be washed at 60°C, but difficult spots may require a higher temperature, however not higher than 80°C. Flax is a durable and durable material and best of all a good choice for the environment. Always expect a loss of about 5-7% when you wash the linen fabric the first time.
A fine linen fabric that has been properly treated has a high, beautiful shine and a cool and smooth surface.
Place the new linen in lukewarm water for at least 20-30 minutes before washing to avoid folds, but also to contribute to more water in the washing machine.
We recommend detergents for coloured washing for all our textiles or detergents without bleach.
3. Horizontal application.
All new flax releases excess fiber at the beginning, which must be flushed out in the wash. Set the washing machine to the program with the most generous amount of water. Do not wash with the eco program as it uses a little water.
Wash at 60°C and wash flax separately and not with other materials, as excess flax fibers can put themselves on the clothing.
If you have a difficult spot that requires a higher temperature, you can increase the temperature, but never above 80°C. because the linen can then fall in elasticity, shine and strength.
4. Drying - centrifugation and drying
For centrifugation, only low speed (400-800), remove the centrifugation completely, if possible. At high speeds, fibres can be broken, resulting in deterioration of quality and more excess fibres. When the sink is finished, clean the door on the washing machine for flute.
Hang to dry after washing. Natural and coloured linen should not be dried in bright sunlight.
We advise against drying. However, the 'BADA' towels can withstand drying at low temperature if desired.
Stretch the damp linen after washing and hang to dry. If you want to iron your fabric, do so while the fabric is moist and with a warm iron (three dots) ) If you have a cold deficiency, you need to miss the linen several times to achieve maximum shine.
