Help kids get themselves clean – our new bath-time items

We’ve added some really super bath-time items to the store – you can read about some of them in our news release (below) and [here].

When I selected these items my main consideration was enabling children to be more independent when taking care of themselves. I believe that if you give kiddies the right bath-time tools, they’ll have more fun getting clean. That’s why all the items in the Bed and Bathroom Accessories department are designed with kids’ needs in mind.

I think they’ll make terrific, healthy gifts or party favors, too. I hope you like them.

Thank you,

Jurate

LinenKids.com Expands Kid-Friendly Natural Linen Bath-Time Collection

Kids love the natural feel and comfort of pure linen. Expanded line-up of towels, mitts, sponges and scrubbers are all specially designed for use by little ones. And the more you use linen, the softer it gets.

Those long, hot summer days and lots of outside play mean more baths and showers for children. At least that’s what mums would like! To give kids a bit more bath time independence, LinenKids.com has expanded its line of linen bath time accessories, including terry towels, waffle-weave towels, scrubbers, sponges and mitts — all specially made and sized for kids from natural, sustainable Lithuanian linen. Jurate Stanisauskiene, founder of LinenKids and mother of two boys, picks a few of her favorite items from her new Bath Time Collection, which make great, healthy gifts. [Click here for images.]

  1. Natural waffle-weave linen towel: “This towel is big enough to wrap up your kiddie and is so soft and absorbent. It has a handy loop for hanging on a hook, and is available in five sizes.”
  2. Linen kids’ back scrubber: “It’s hard for kids to wash their backs, and products designed for adults are too abrasive for them. This scrubber is made for little ones to scrub their back themselves — it’s soft on the skin and does the job nicely.”
  3. Linen kids’ bath mitt: “I think a mitt is the best way to encourage bath-time independence. This mitt matches our back scrubber and has an elastic band sewn inside so it stays on during use.”
  4. Hooded linen bath robe: “This item is so soft, warm and cozy that your child will love to wear it after a bath, shower or sauna!”
  5. Bath time essentials: “This is a bundle of all of my favorites — the back scrubber, the mitt and the sponge — all made from pure, soft linen. Learning to get clean can be fun!”

LinenKids is the culmination of a 4-year odyssey

Four years ago, Jurate Stanisauskiene was looking for unique, natural and beautiful products for her first son. She ran across locally produced linen products, liked the cool, smooth feel of the fabric, and on a whim bought an outfit for her child. “I immediately noticed that he was much happier and calmer when wearing linen. I did a little more research into traditional Lithuanian linen and learned that it’s made from special flax that yields a linen that of much higher quality than the fabric typically used in factory-made clothes.” LinenKids is the evolution of that initial idea, and aims to introduce parents worldwide to beautiful Lithuanian linen.

30 days of LinenKids, day 2: hooded sweater in natural linen

hooded sweater in natural linen

I love the look of this linen sweater; it was designed by Daiva Tamosaitiene, a talented Lithuanian designer. The bit I like best: the motif of the girl with long hair that’s featured on the pocket. Another detail that’s really super: the loop closures. Almost three years ago, I saw her designer clothes for children at a fashion show and I thought: “They are so cool!’

Looking at her designs I always smile – they just make me feel great. Tricksy girls, ladybirds, sheep – these details are her ‘signatures’.

2-pocketChildren also love her designs and feel very natural wearing this pullover. If you look closely at this picture, you’ll see there’s something in the pocket. I noticed it only after a photo session, when I discovered that this little girl had already started to put her little treasures into the pocket – a bottle of soap bubbles! So I guess it’s fair to say that she really felt at home in this sweater.

This sweater is great and extremely comfortable for everyday wear.
It has been knitted using a fine linen thread, and then washed to eliminate further shrinkage and to make sure that it will not lose its shape. Like most of our items, it’s machine-washable so it can be worn every day.

Talking of which, I think it goes well with another one of Daiva’s creations: the “Tricksy Girl” natural linen handbag.
