Fall in Fashion with LinenKids.com Wool Thows

Once fall is around, leaves tumble down and the weather is getting colder, this makes you wonder weather it was ever hot. On the top of all I do love autumn! Inspired by the fall, LinenKids.com launched woolen throws collection.

I do love LinenKids woolen throws collection even if it was a hard task to launch it. Our team did a great job looking for the best weavers of throws here, in Lithuania. Finally we were glad to meet with Silkeborg, the company which has long been known as the exclusive manufacturer of high quality throws made from all natural wools. We were choosing from the ocean of the first-class throws while we finally have selected items for LinenKids collection.

While being at Silkeborg, it was so exiting to find out a lot of interesting things about wool! Have you ever heard that Alpaca is even warmer than wool and has a soft feel like silk, or that it comes in up to 25 natural colors – some alpaca farmers speak even about up to 66 colors shades. Was it interesting for you too? I am sure it was, this is why I will provide you with all woolen news in the next blog post.

Do you have any traditions in autumn? My family does! We do love home made apple cakes, and there is nothing better how to cuddle up in a soft throw while tasting my home made apple pie. This fall my family will enjoy warmth and comfort with LinenKids Baby Alpaca Amanda throw and Emma Baby blanket that I could not resist and already purchased… What about you?

I will reveal to you one little secret – seasons come and seasons go, but these wool throws give you warmth and comfort during all four seasons. LinenKids throws are perfect for chilly winter evenings at home and summer picnics under the tree. This is so practical you may think. Yes, you are right, it is! Most of our wool throws are easy to care for as they are washable. And this is not enough, wool throws are not just practical, they are beautiful as well. Timeless designs and neutral colors will brighten up any home design. And do not forget we do have some special throws for your little ones, Emma baby blanket and Danaja woolen throws are made in a special size -baby size, to keep your baby snug and comfortable.

Just to let you know, here is some types of wool we are using in our throws and blankets: Merino Lambs Wool, Pure New Wool, Extra fine Merino Wool, Kid Mohair Wool, Alpaca and Baby Alpaca Wool.

Hope you and your family will enjoy colorful autumn with LinenKids Woolen Throws!

Sustainable Linen Packaging: Pure Beauty, Simplicity and Practicality

Sometimes the things that I treat as “natural” and “must to be”, to others seem as unique and different. This time I am talking about LinenKids packaging. I think that packaging is a part of the product and each detail has to be perfect, the packaging – as well. That’s why we have started packing LinenKids items into pure natural linen bags, handmade of course.

We are receiving so positive and encouraging feedback from our customers! Customers, suppliers and partners just loved these bags, treating them as unique, sustainable and beautiful. How many of you would complement packaging if it was just a carton box or plastic bag?

These bags are handmade of linen. They come in different colors and sizes, adding vintage look and the final touch to LinenKids items. Pure beauty of linen is highlighted by simple design. These bags are sustainable and practical, because they can be used as linen or any other clothes storage bags.

And the last, but not the least point – this packaging is free of charge!

SSE Riga students are invited to become LinenKids team members!

An unusual day at work was this Monday for LinenKids team members – Jovile and Tomas. They were traveling to Latvia to meet the students from Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (SSE Riga). A million thanks to Karolis fro Riga, who gave us a warm welcome!

Cooperation with SSE Riga is one of LinenKids social responsible projects. We embrace responsibility for the impact of our activities on the environment, consumers, employees, community, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere.

LinenKids is always involved in public life and this project is just one example. LinenKids suggested to introduce SSE Riga students with E-commerce challenges and opportunities, giving them a real E-commerce case. This was accepted by SSE Riga academic society as a great idea! LinenKids marketing strategy was revealed to students, they were invited to develop their own strategies, to create innovative ways and to overcome challenges in E-commerce.

Big compliments to SSE Riga students, who were filled with curiosity about E-commerce and LinenKids. We were glad to give Linen Tomcats for most active people from the audience. This project will help students to expand their knowledge in E-commerce, it will give them more practice and it is a great opportunity to be involved in a real business. Equally LinenKids is  waiting to hear  SSE Riga students big ideas to achieve bigger results and to expand our team!
