Top Flax Growing Countries In The World

Flax Fiber

Flax is the oldest fiber plant among all the fibers. Basically, it is an annual plant, and the fiber is collected from the stem of the plant. Therefore, flax seeds are cultivated in fertile, well-defined, and well-prepared soil in cool and humid conditions. The process of collecting fiber from the plant is also similar to that of jute fiber. At present, the demand for linen fiber has increased incredibly, and for this reason, the production rate of flax fiber is increasing rapidly. At present, Russia is the major flax-cultivating country in the world, but the best-quality flax is cultivated in Belgium. Hence, a major portion of linen fiber is supplied from Europe.
