What is CLUB MASTERS OF LINEN?
Club Masters of Linen is a club of European textile companies who have opted for 100% European traceability and want to offer their clients – brands and/or consumers – a differentiation tool a high value-added identity.
Masters of Linen is a collective mark which guarantees excellence and 100% European traceability at each stage of processing. It is available for finished products with a final composition of either pure linen, linen blends (cotton warp, linen weft) or a linen-rich fibre content, in the areas of fashion and household textiles.
To ensure 100% European traceability of finished products, the spinners and weavers commit to a stringent set of rules set by the Club Masters of Linen Committee - the governing body – and the companies’ Auditors and approved certification bodies: Centrocot-IT et Centexbel-BE.
CLUB MASTERS OF LINEN benefits from a specific timetable to promote its members through collective and individual projects. It is led by Marie Demaegdt, head of the Textile Department at CELC: firstname.lastname@example.org
