Since 1778, our aim has been to acquire expertise and deliver quality with ecological practices!
Safilin would not be what it is today without the women and men who make up our teams. We share the same values, ecological conscience and above all, the same passion for linen.
Every day, their hands carry out precise and technical tasks, perfectly mastering this age-old craft. This is what guarantees the production of the highest-quality yarn.
At Safilin, machines and technology serve our 500 team members. Never the opposite.
Safilin has been established in Poland over 20 years, where linen has strong traditions.
In 2002, reopening of our spinning factory in BÉTHUNE (62) allowed us to offer 100% French linen once again after 20 years’ break.

AND OUR HISTORY
Luxury is a must, efficiency is an added bonus. We have the mindset of a craftsman with industrial power.
Our expertise – the fruit of our passion and constant training – is recognised around the world.
It is the prerequisite for keeping our feet on the ground, and aiming high in the future.
Safilin is a family owned company, founded in 1778. The first company was created by the Salmon family in Armentières in North of France, right in the heart of linen areas.
In 1860, the family erected our first linen spinning and weaving factory in Armentières. By 1922, it was Europe’s biggest linen operation.
As part of our European expansion, Safilin started operating in another neighbouring country with a strong linen tradition: Poland.
Between 1995 and 1997, Safilin established linen factories in the region famous for thousands of lakes, marking our participation in the linen market boom.
In 2007, after years of research and development and consultation with the knitting sector, Safilin developed a range of 100% linen yarn for flat and circular knitting.
We continue to develop new products to meet our industrial customers’ environmental standards and technical requirements, such as our linen roving range which began in 2012.
In 2022, a new chapter has begun with the opening of our third linen spinning factory in France, in Béthune, in the Hauts de France region, historic cradle of our company.
