PA. Flax Project
Our collaboration with Emma de Long at Kneehigh farm to re-establish a U.S. based flax for linen supply has grown into a sister organization!
Bringing flax for fine linen back to Pennsylvania
Our dream is to make all of our linen kitchen essentials, from seed to table, close to home.
Our search for a local source of linen led us to our work with Emma de Long of Kneehigh Farm to revitalize the industry right here in Pennsylvania. The American linen industry is being rebuilt across the country and we are proud to be at the forefront of this important work. 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 and the others we’ve connected with across the country pursuing similar work.
