Founded in 1835 by Edouard LEMAITRE-DEMEESTERE, the mayor of Halluin at that time, LEMAITRE DEMEESTERE is the premiere French linen specialist and one of the oldest textile companies in France. The fabric company is manufacturing and selling high-end fabrics for editors, upholstery, home decoration, and the clothing industry. Employing 37 people and enjoying a rare know-how in sizing, warping, weaving, dyeing, and finishing, LEMAITRE DEMEESTERE is manufacturing 100% of its production in a quiet city in the North of France. Keeping its production close to home helps the environment and reduce overhead costs, which then passes cost-saving benefits to customers.

Ecological and Green Manufacturing Practices

LEMAITRE DEMEESTERE is a European specialist in natural fiber fabrics, particularly linen. The company uses flax in its production of linen; farming flax doesn't require any pesticides. The plant needs less water than cotton plants and doesn’t damage soil during farming.

All the linen and fabric from LEMAITRE DEMEESTERE are from Northern France and Normandy in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint. The company's farming and production processes take place in France to do their part in reducing CO2 emissions.

Sustainable farming is essential in the manufacturing and production of fabric, and LEMAITRE DEMEESTERE is doing its part to reduce its use of harmful processes during production and to take better care of the environment.
