As a committed Cooperative, as a group of passionned people being convinced that the know-how is a major guarantee of quality, TERRE DE LIN wants to to stand by the companies of the linen sector that share its convictions and values .
Thus, TERRE DE LIN developped some partnerships with its downstream, with actors that share our passion.
Since the year 1918, TOSCO has been developing its know how to produce worsted dry spinning (linen) yarns and fabrics. With passion and quality commitment, TOSCO’s policy has been to develop a strong relationship with the Chinese spinning mill YIXING SUNSHINE. Both companies have been working together for years to develop their know-how and quality control. In the same way, YIXING SUNSHINE and TEX NORD have built a close partnership to give quality consistency and regularity to YIXING SUNSHINE’s yarns.
Linen has always been part of Basque history. In the house - etxea in Basque - linen was used for the sheets of the trousseau transmitted from generation to generation, but also for the most beautiful clothes. The ancestor of Basque linen, the “mante à boeuf”, was also made of linen and protected the animals from parasites while absorbing their perspiration.
LINETXEA chose the linen passionately cultivated by the farmers in Normandy of the cooperative TERRE DE LIN. The longest fibers, the most noble and the softest, are selected to obtain an exceptional yarn.
Camille and Alexis are passionate about linen.
Having grown in a farmer family from Normandy, as flax producers for 4 generations and adherents of TERRE DE LIN, they have been in contact with this fiber since they were children.
Willing to promote the excellence of Normandy flax and linen, they created their own brand of home textile: EMBRIN. Convinced by the exceptionnal virtues of flax fiber on sleep, the young brand currently distributes exclusively bed linen, but the collection will be growing next spring with new products.
