Main Line Flax by Camira
February 02, 2015
began in 1974, the company offered Main Line, which grew in popularity thanks to Camira’s next-day delivery—“a rare concept at the time.” This year Camira is relaunching the fabric as Main Line Flax
, a blend of wool and wild flax. Main Line Flax is produced at Camira’s own spinning plant as a 70/30 wool flax blend.
The addition of flax makes the textile natural and hearty: “A symbol of purity, wild flax has been used in textiles for thousands of years thanks to its strong, long and smooth fibers found inside the stem of the plant."
70/30 Wool Flax Blend
Main Line Flax comes in 41 nature-inspired colors: “Soft neutral undertones of creams, grays and browns cross other colors like seeds blown by the wind,” explains Camira. The palette is organic and rich. Euston is a deep aubergine that’s luscious and fruity; Stanmore is a bold turquoise that’s bright and aquatic; and Finsbury is a woody chartreuse that’s mossy and earthy. Neutrals offer rich texture and subtle variations as well.
Thanks to the blend of wool and flax, Main Line Flax is naturally flame-retardant, so the textile requires no harmful chemical treatment. This makes Main Line Flax a great option for healthcare and hospitality venues.
