Additionally, when it comes to the quality assurance of Linen there is an organisation which is in charge or regulating fabric.
Masters of Linen
The Masters of Linen are an agriculture-industry organisation that regulate the makers of linen. Similarly to how the best of the best restaurants have a hat system, the best European mills are regulated by this form of quality assurance. The mark means;
- The quality linen is 100% made in Europe, it has provenance, a place and a source of origin.
- The linen is produced with exceptional, age-old European skill and knowledge.
- Linen is made by companies with corporate social responsibility.

Linen can be made all over the world, however as linen is made from a plant ensuring the plant is in the right climate and looked after all the way from the fields to your hands is why it needs to be regulated. Additionally, Belgian has the best climate for the flax plant and from there the mills place a number of processes in place to ensure nothing except the highest quality.
