Children can be stylish too

All mothers dress children so that they are comfortable. But only comfort is not good enough. Wrong choice of clothes can also influence your child‘s personality.

Let‘s not forget that child‘s personality and values are formed in early childhood. Therefore, to help children to develop their sense of style and taste, we should pay attention not only to what books they read, games they play, music they listen to, people they interact with, but also to what they wear.

You might think that it‘s rather snob to dress children in designer clothes and buy expensive high quality clothes because they outgrow them so fast, but the correct choice of clothes can influence your child‘s behaviour and mood. It‘s better to have one piece of stylish clothing that can be worn for different occasions or every day activities. Your child would then feel stylish every day and it‘s a fact that stylish clothes affect your child’s behaviour and mood. The most important thing when choosing an outfit for a child is, of course, its quality. All mothers know that we have to wash clothes very often, so it‘s important to be sure that clothes are long-lasting, and will not loose its shape after being washed.

Most often children wear is classic, but each season it is highlighted with many different colors and ornaments. Clothes should be decorated with big applications like flowers, leaves and all what‘s natural, borrowed from the nature. The main focus remains on natural and eco-friendly materials, and highlighting your child‘s personality, which will also help to create an intelligent approach to the environment and other people.

Basically, fashion trends may change every year, but they stay more or less stable in the world of children fashion, because the main idea for children clothes is that they should be comfortable, easily washable and dear to children, as they are the ones who wear them. We at LinenKids offer clothes that have all these qualities. Moreover, our clothes are of more classic style, so they are always fashionable. Most importantly, the kids seem to love them!

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,

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 6: boys simple white linen shirt

boys simple linen shirt

So what’s a practical and comfortable summer shirt for the little boy who is always zooming around and loves to play outside? I think my ‘simple’ white linen shirt is perfect.

I like the vintage-inspired design of this shirt, especially the unique look of the light and airy white linen fabric, which features alternating translucent and opaque stripes. This shirt reminds me of movies about Lithuania in 19th century: the scenes from the countryside with the barefooted children, playing in the wonderful old village gardens. They used to wear loose linen shirts with a comfortable lace-up front. It’s such a cute look!

The moment I saw this shirt I wanted to add it to the new LinenKids summer collection. I was excited about the stylish lace-up look and the sleeves, which are an unusual and practical ¾ length. It’s perfect for warm summer days: the 100% linen fabric is extremely thin — it seems a light as air. This shirt is made in an interesting, striped texture of 100% linen. The best part is that it’s so soft — I’m sure any boy will feel really comfortable in this shirt, just like those bare-footed children from centuries past.

This shirt is easy to care for, just like all my linen items. It is made from fine linen cloth, pre-washed to reduce shrinkage but it might shrink an additional 3% after the first wash.

And you can dress up this shirt of you like. I think it goes great with these super-comfortable and stylish boys linen cargo pants.

30 days of LinenKids, day 3: striped knitted linen pullover

3_linen_pullover_knitted_striped-1

This striped linen pullover is great for Spring. It’s one of my older son’s favorites, and when you have a boy who likes to wear something that you also like – that’s a great thing! It is made by one of the best Lithuanian designers with extremely high attention to detail and quality. It’s knitted using fine linen thread, washed to remove shrinkage and constructed to make sure that it won’t lose its shape.

I selected this pullover for LinenKids.com for three reasons:

1. It’s hard to find knitted 100% linen pullovers — in stores or online. Why is that, I hear you ask? Well, linen thread is generally uneven – it varies from thin to thick, unlike cotton, for example. These natural imperfections are the real nature of linen and I think what it makes beautiful. But at the same time it is very hard to knit this thread with knitting machines: there’s lots of manual intervention and supervision needed to ensure high quality of the final product. And of course that is time-consuming. That’s why only small, specialist companies want to tackle knitting linen to make clothes — but the results are lovely.

2. Its classic, simple design captured my heart. I think it’s a great pullover for everyday wear — but it’s also nice for ‘smart’ occasions. It’s machine-washable, too.

3. My son likes it! He wore this pullover last summer and was very happy. Why? I think it’s because of the classic design, which allows for movement without getting in the way. Another reason he likes it is because it has natural cooling properties. He’s an active kid and while running around he often gets hot and sweaty. With some fabrics, that can mean you get chills when you’re playing outside. But linen is great because it keeps him cool when he gets hot, and then gradually cools him down when he stops for a moment.

I think it goes great with the classic natural linen trousers.

Hope you like them!
