Used for both textiles and food, there is evidence of Flax fibre from over 3000 years ago. Revered by the ancient Egyptians who painted images of the flowering plant on temple walls and considered Flax to be a symbol of purity, priests would only wear linen and the deceased (mummies) were entombed in the material.

The plant regained popularity in the 8th century as a hygienic textile and for the health benefits of flax (linseed) oil.
