Flax Clothes & Flax Clothing Retailers
The Flax clothing line is designed for the woman who is adventurous, warm, bright, talented, generous and fun. Specializing in simple linen separates that are both classic and modern, and always easy-going, the FLAX line of clothes are no-nonsense wardrobe staples that last and are fun to make your own.
Back in the late 1980s, in upstate New York, just outside of Ithaca, Designer Jeanne Engelhardt and her husband Matthew started Angelheart Designs as a cottage industry business in an old dairy barn, with handmade clothes for sale without retailers. A trip to post-Soviet Empire Lithuania changed things: with abundant linen to buy and many underutilized factories following the transition to a market economy after the collapse of the Soviet Empire, Engelhart found a worker-owned, women-run collective and renamed her line Jeanne Engelhart Flax. Sales in the U.S. started in 1993. To this day, you can only buy FLAX clothes at boutique retailers and online retailers, and the brand has become wildly popular over the years.
Flax sizing is generous, and since they are meant to be worn loose, the sizing covers a range. A "small" is equivalent to sizes 6-8, depending on how loose you like it and the cut of the garment you buy (view our online size chart). The items are practical, with most items having pockets; the pants have elastic waistbands and the roomy tops usually just slip on over your head. Not to mention that everything can be thrown right into the wash, ironing is optional.

The FLAX collection of clothing is huge and can be a little confusing. As such, LISSA the shop is your specialty retailer, offering a carefully curated collection, as well as ideas on how to combine FLAX with items from other designers that you may already own or wish to buy.
