History


The Ghekiere company is a dynamic family run SME that has been established since 1958 by Daniël Ghekiere.
He was married to the daughter of flax machine constructor Deman.
Daniël’s father owned a water retted flax scutching company.
The Ghekiere family has thus been active in the flax scutching industry for many generations now and is very well known in the sector.

Situated in the historic heart of the West Flemish flax industry,
the company has always striven to ensure high quality products and loyalty towards its customers and suppliers.
This image is carefully controlled and reflects itself in the long term relationships with customers.

The monitoring of our quality is still our main concern.
Thanks to our years of experience as well as our experienced team we can provide fiber according to the specific requirements of each customer.



Quality control begins already through our production method.
We do not work with automatic feed belts,
but still feed the machines with hand rolls, which gives the great advantage to remove inferior fibers as well as any foreign fibers.

In our two production lines, we work with finesse machines, machines that open the fibers, refine and extract a large part of the seed carriers.
They also additionally remove the remaining pectins on the fibers.

We can also control quality through the choice of our suppliers.
We only work with flaxeners that we are sure are closely swinging.

We have about 10 different types of flax tow within our range.


Through our way of working,
we can give basic samples for the different types at the beginning of a season and keep them throughout the season.

This is one of our great strengths.
This way you as a customer can put a certain type of ours as a standard in a fixed mixture during a full season.

We can offer both waterroot and dewroot flax blobs in the different types.

Within our range we also have fibers derived from organically grown flax.
This comes with the necessary BIO certificates.
