Linen weaving is the process by which flax threads are transformed into fabric. This process involves several steps.
It starts with the preparation of the threads in a specific order, known as warping. Then, the threads are wound parallel to each other. The next step involves threading the weft threads onto shuttles or bobbins. The weft threads are placed horizontally, while the warp threads are positioned vertically.
During weaving, the weft threads are interlaced perpendicularly with the warp threads, and then both threads are tightened using a comb.
In France, several companies specialize in linen weaving and are located in close proximity to the regions where flax is cultivated.
