Linen Tales was first introduced to the world in our own home. To show that the new look made home more beautiful, we opened our living room doors for everyone to visit. We wanted to show how beautiful linen textiles can be while merging the tradition and history of this fabric with a modern interior, all set up in a 16th century building.
It all started with reimagining the fabric. We wanted to keep the Lithuanian linen traditions, but the grey rough linen hardly made contemporary life rituals inspiring. Our formula was to infuse more colours and softness. And it worked.
What started as a small open house store, quickly became a brand with clients all over the world.
Linen is the strongest, and most resistant natural fiber has unique bacteriologic properties and is less prone to wear and tear down. Your favorite linen pieces can last you for many years with proper care!
To avoid shrinkage, the machine washing temperature should be 40°C / 100°F; for thin linen fabrics, avoid using a washing machine; it’s best to do it by hand. Avoid harsh powder detergents to clean the pieces and use oxygen-based bleach only on white linen. For best drying results, hang-dry your linen; if you don’t have such an opportunity, use a tumble on low and remove it while still damp. You can iron the fabric for a neat look, but we encourage you to embrace a natural crinkled look.
