Article on the Blog Rooted in Community
Chico Flax will assist people to become self-supporting in a responsible sustainable way as well as encouraging cooperation within the community. Flax-to-linen requires a small village of farmers, tool makers, spinners’, dyers of natural fibers, and weavers. As we refine and grow our efforts, we will be reaching even more people: manufactures of machinery to automate the processes, inventors to facilitate new discoveries, designers creating leading edge linen fabric, and educators to share their knowledge. The flax plant requires little water and all parts of the plant can be used from seed to fiber. Lastly it works best with community partnerships from farmer to weaver.
