In the ‘Koffiebeekstraat’ in Deinze/Grammene you can still see and old flax factory. The building should date back to the first half of the 20th century. The factory was shut donw in the year 1970. Apparently the farmers rented the place to process their recourse. The factory owner hardly ever had to do anything, he just had to rent the equipment. This made him an important member of the society in the town.
