    Flax! The material used for the bags is flax, not flux.

    Had me confused there!

    Now, what does one put in a flax sack? Flour? Corks?

    Not a good shop to be attempt to work with hangover!

  3. George O'Reilly says:

    Could that have be ‘flax’ instead of ‘Flux’?

  4. Stuart says:

    In picture 8 it seems there is a badly stuffed fox sitting on a bar above the machinery.

    In 1970 we made the first non-woven flax, called “Milieu Bag” and suited for disposals. This all to reduce plastic that was not environmental. The whole street was in production for a short period, but was boycotted by the mighty Plastic lobby. So, a lot of experience,hard work and money in the drain. Bankrupt was our reward!
