The flax plant has been known to be cultivated for linseed or flaxseed since very ancient times; it is one of the oldest cultivated plants known to man. For example, excavations of the most ancient Egyptian tombs have come up with flax seeds as well as the flax fiber cloth woven from this plant. Historians and archeologist are also sure that the first linen mentioned in the Bible was spun from flax. The flax plant was thus very important as a source of seeds and clothing in early human history.
