On La Route du Lin, the trail of the flax trade, in the heart of Brittany, two particular sites will tell you the amazing story of the weaving of flax into magnificent linen fabrics known as “Les Bretagnes”. From the 17th to the 19th centuries, these luxury linen fabrics were exported via Saint-Malo to Cadiz. From there they headed towards the Spanish colonies in Latin America, making many people extremely rich along the way.
