Visit of French Flax fiber Delegation

Nathalie OSTERNAUD - 14/01/13

The French Trade Commission-Ubifrance organized recently a discovery trip of Indian Linen Market for Union Syndicale des Rousseurs-Teilleurs de Lin de France (U.S.R.T.L), French Federation of flax retting and scutching companies. The delegation headed by Mr.Jean-Pierre D’Arras President, U.S.R.T.L. comprised of the representatives of 5 French companies


The French delegation had meetings with the representatives of the Indian Ministry of textiles, various Indian linen companies, organisations and associations between 17th to 22nd December 2012 at New Delhi, Kolkatta and Mumbai. The delegation was very satisfied by this visit which gave them insight into the promising Indian linen market. All the representatives plan to visit India in the near future.

Cultivated at close-proximity, flax is grown in a wide coastal band of Western Europe stretching from the South of Normandy in Northern France through Belgium and the Netherlands : from Caen to Amsterdam. The only plant textile fiber originating on the continent, European linen cultivation cannot be relocated, its excellence is thanks to a unique combination: a natural, damp ocean climate, flax’s low thermal density, a rich soil and the experience of flax growers.

N°1 WORLDWIDE: 85% of the world’s production of scutched flax fibers is originated from Europe, and France is the world leader. France accounts for 80% of production of long fiber which is approximately 80 000 tons.
