    General Information

    Basic check made of linen. Wonderfully simple, fine and solid

    When something has plaid or check in its name, it leaves room for an infinite number of ideas about what this check pattern could look like. And even if it is described as a prototypical check, five people will probably have at least six check patterns in mind. Nevertheless, we have agreed that this bed linen presents one of the simplest prototypical check patterns. In contrast to this is the fine herringbone weave of the natural-colored background, into which the pattern is woven with red-dyed yarn. In this double restraint of pattern and color, the bed linen blends into almost any style of living without appearing boring. On the contrary, we have to admit that the sight of this bed linen immediately puts us in a vacation mood and whisks us away to a summer retreat in the countryside. Incidentally, the bed linen is ideal for summer anyway, as it is woven from pure linen of European provenance. It ensures a pleasant sleeping climate on warm nights: linen is good at conducting heat and absorbing a lot of moisture without feeling damp. However, it also releases moisture quickly, so that linen bed linen has a slightly cooling effect. In addition, the fine, yet hard-wearing fabric made from this skin-friendly natural fiber feels pleasantly soft and supple against the skin.

    We offer the bed linen as a set with comforter cover and pillowcase, pillowcases can also be ordered separately. Contrary to our usual practice, we also have all covers fitted with zippers, firstly because not everyone likes buttons and secondly because this preserves the clear appearance of the checked covers.

    Passion for Lithuanian Linen. Erika Vaitkute.

    The enthusiasm for textile crafts and fabrics, especially linen ones, has accompanied Erika Vaitkute ever since she can remember. Her mother introduced her to sewing at a young age and heartened her appreciation for Lithuanian linen. As you may know, Lithuania looks back on a millennia-old, deeply rooted, and lively linen tradition. Therefore, cherishing the exploration and continuation of old textile techniques is not unusual among Lithuanians. In recent years one could follow a revival of interest gaining strength throughout the Baltic States when young artists, designers and craftspeople turned to the fascinating repertoire of their textile tradition.
    In the meantime, Erika Vaitkute’s path has led her (and her sewing machine) to Germany; yet, the passion for fine linen textiles and the traditional craft behind the respective manufacturing process stayed with her. So she has set up a small studio in Hamburg, where she designs textile patterns and collections with her team. However, she has the textile goods woven and made up in her manufactory in Lithuania. The manufacture of Vaitkute’s handcrafted, sophisticated pieces – from table linen to blankets to towels for the kitchen and bath – takes place according to the rules of Lithuanian linen weaving. The manufactory uses the best linen yarns from long-fibre flax, exclusively of European origin. On the one hand, the choice of the fax’s origin ensures the high quality of the linen; on the other hand, it guarantees the environmentally friendly processing of the ancient cultivated plant and fair working conditions on linen plantations.
