Stories to Savor
The world’s best linen comes from a small area along the French-Belgium border. The reason is both simple and complex.
The simple part is that weather and soil conditions are ideal for growing flax, and linen is the product of flax fibers.
The more complex answer is that over generations, the concentration of human talent focused on producing the highest quality linen products has created a kind of engine of innovation. Here, the innovations are craft based. No genetically modified organisms or chemicals. Just ever more refined traditional practices.
This happens in other places for other industries. Think of Silicon Valley for technology or wine production in the Sonoma Valley.
Kathryn Sanderson is an example of this phenomena. She wanted to design and produce great linen products. Her talent as a designer would travel to wherever she called home. But, she needed more than that. She needed access to great weavers and a wide variety of Colors and textures. She also needed highly skilled craftspeople for her workshop that could cut and sew the designs into beautiful, functional and long lasting products. She needed accurate information about crop conditions.
Why would she go anywhere else?
