The officer's collar
The officer's collar owes its name to the fact that it is found on various officer's jackets and other uniforms. Often confused with the Mao collar, it is a simple collar stand with no flap. It is a strip of fabric connected by a single button and without lapels.
Linen is made from the fibres of the flax plant which, historically, is one of the first cultivated species. The oldest fibre in the world, which dates back 36,000 years, is made of linen and was found in the Dzudzuana cave in Georgia.
Flax only grows on a coastal strip between Calvados and Amsterdam, passing through Normandy and Flanders. These 90,000 hectares with their special climate produce 110,000 tonnes of fibre, of which about 80% goes to China for spinning before returning to Europe.
It requires very little fertiliser, uses the soil’s natural ressources and, like the finest wines, does not require irrigation. During the various transformation stages, from plant to fabric, linen respects the environment and doesn’t produce waste since the whole plant is used.
