All of this linen is woven in Belgium. The fabric is inspected yard by yard and mended by hand where necessary. Libeco products are made with great care, for the product, but also for the environment. Over the last few years, Libeco has made again significant steps by becoming a CO2 neutral company and by launching a 100% organic linen collection. Corporate sustainability for a viable future, that is their vision.
Meanwhile, the fifth generation of the Libeert family is managing the company. Together with some 200 colleagues, Libeco continue to weave their own story.
Historic flax region
In the meantime, the Flemish landscape around Kortrijk was completely transformed by the prosperity brought about by linen. In 19th century Meulebeke, more than 65% of the population worked in the flax industry. Today you can still find streets named after flax, retting and even linen (Vlasstraat, Roterijstraat, and Linnenstraat). The best flax in the world is still grown in this region.
