until recently i was unaware of the origin of linen. but as my quest continues i discovered that it is indeed the fibers from the flax plant. the whole plant can be utilized for man made use which makes the idea of linen even more appealing.
the final result of the woven fibers along with the way the fabric continues to improve with age all contribute to my fixation with all things linen.
Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder; as if creation rose, bathed in the light, out of the darkness, utterly new and fresh and astonishing. The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us.
