Product life cycle

From the flax plant to the Organoid® natural surface

    Provenance & Origin

    Flax fleece is made from the delicate flax plant (linen). Flax grows best at a temperate climate and thrives in Western Europe, Northern France, Belgium and parts of Northern Germany. Cultivating the undemanding plant requires no additional water.

    Harvesting & Processing

    In the end of June, mechanical pulling machines pull the flax out of the ground with their roots. The plants are then placed onto the field, where rain washes the nutrients back into the soil. After drying, the flax is collected around end of July or August and processed into natural fibres.

    With hydroentanglement, the flax is made into a smooth fabric. No chemicals are added during the entire process from field to fabric.

    Making an interior design element

    At our Organoid headquarters, we refine the flax fleece with real natural fibres like hay, colourful flower petals and moss. With our gentle and climate-neutral production process, we create a sustainable product for interior design that still has the original feel, look and fragrance of the raw materials.
