Linum usitatissimum (species) (Linum (genus), Linaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of herbaceous annual, native to the area of the eastern Mediterranean and India; probably first cultivated in the Fertile Crescent. The plant grows to 4 m in height, bears blue flowers succeeded by pods that contain the seeds. It is cultivated both for its fiber, from which linen yarn and fabric are made, and for its seed, the source of linseed oil, which is an edible oil used as a nutritional supplement and as an ingredient in painting and many wood finishing products. Evidence of its use has been found in the prehistoric sites in Georgia and Switzerland. Fine linen fabrics are common in ancient Egyptian tombs. It was brought to Gaul and Britain by Phoenician traders; the Romans introduced linen manufacture throughout their empire. By the 17th century, linen manufacturing was an important industry in Western Europe.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kruidachtige eenjarige plant, inheems in het gebied dat zich uitstrekt van het oosten van het Middellandse Zeegebied tot India. Waarschijnlijk voor het eerst gekweekt in de Vruchtbare Sikkel. De plant wordt 4 meter hoog en heeft blauwe bloemen waaruit peulen met zaadjes ontstaan. De plant wordt verbouwd vanwege de vezels, waar men vlasdraad en linnen van kan maken, en vanwege de zaadjes, waar men lijnzaadolie uit wint, een eetbare olie die wordt gebruikt als voedingssupplement en als bestanddeel van verf en een groot aantal producten waarmee men hout afwerkt. In Georgië en Zwitserland zijn bewijzen gevonden dat vlas al in de prehistorie werd gebruikt, en in Egyptische tombes heeft men geregeld fijne linnen stoffen gevonden. Fenicische handelaren introduceerden linnen in Gallië en Groot-Brittannië. De Romeinen verspreidden linnen producten over hun hele rijk. In West-Europa werd de productie van linnen in de zeventiende eeuw een belangrijke industrie.
