Bringing flax for fine linen back to Pennsylvania
My dream is to make all of our linen essentials, from seed to table, close to home.
My search for a local source of linen led me to my work with Emma de Long of Kneehigh Farm to revitalize the industry right here in Pennsylvania. In 2020, we founded the PA Flax Project. We are proud to be at the forefront of rebuilding the American linen industry. Growing flax for fine linen in Pennsylvania dates back to 1691 and we’re honored to be revitalizing this long dormant trade.
The Pa. Flax Project aims to revitalize the flax for linen industry in our region to benefit both rural and urban communities. Visit our website to learn more and to support our efforts.
Thank you – my community of customers, textile artisans, activists, and farmers for being so eager to support these efforts in textile development. We couldn’t do it without you.
