Flax is the plant from which linen is made.

Linen is a fabric commonly used for furniture, pillows, clothing, and shoes.

Here is a short video about the flax plant:

Linen is not particularly soft, however, it is very light, and it provides great texture in your space.  I love adding linen pillows to living rooms as they create a laid back, beach-y kind of feel.

What do you think?  Do you have a flax plant or enjoy the benefits of linen in your space or wardrobe?  I would love to hear from you.
