A bio-based thermoset resin was reinforced with flax fabrics and Lyocell fiber. The effect of different weave architecture was studied with four flax fabrics with different architecture: plain, twill (two different types) and dobby. The effect of the outer ply thickness was studied and characterized with flexural and impact testing. Composites manufactured with plain weave reinforcement had the best mechanical properties. The tensile strength, tensile modulus, flexural strength, flexural modulus and impact strength was 280 MPa, 32 GPa, 250 MPa, 25 GPa and 75 kJ/m2 respectively.
