Linen Curtain Fabric

Linen is usually an expensive textile, and is produced in relatively small quantities.  It is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant (latin name is Linum usitatissimum) and is labor-intensive to manufacture.  It can be woven into many different designs and is a beautiful natural fabric to use for curtains as well as upholstery. Lighter weight linens are fabric household goods, such as pillowcases and towels. Textiles in a linen-weave texture, even when made of cotton, hemp and other non-flax fibres are also loosely referred to as "linen".

History

Linen textiles appear to be some of the oldest in the world: their history goes back many thousands of years. Fragments of straw, seeds, fibres, yarns, and various types of fabrics which date back to about 8000 BC have been found in Swiss lake dwellings. Dyed flax fibres found in a prehistoric cave in Georgia suggest the use of woven linen fabrics from wild flax may date back even earlier to 36,000  woven from hand spun yarns, were very fine for their day, but are coarse compared to modern linen.
