Our “House of Baltic Linen” family owned company was born in here in Australia, beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
It’s really hard to say who inspired the birth of our linen business or how the idea became the reality, but one thing is obvious - being far away from our home country, feeling extremely homesick was huge motivation to bring back something authentic, something valuable and truly Lithuanian, which undoubtedly was natural LINEN, real Lithuanian linen, which we are so proud of!
Dreams were dreams, but the reality turned out to be much more difficult. To be honest we didn’t even have a proper plan what we were going to make then- we just were so keen to start! We still remember the joy of the first batch of our linens- colours, textures, even incredible aroma of linen filled the room...
Long journey of hard work, trials, experiments, discoveries, mistakes, failures and achievements made our House of Baltic Linen stronger and stronger day by day.
We had to learn learn how to sew linen, how to stonewash after endless research, testing, piles of ruined fabric, and even how to dye linen- absolutely fantastic process were we get ourselves dirty from heads to toes, continuously argue and eventually, tremble with enormous joy and satisfaction when something beautiful is “born”!
The inspiration for our designs usually comes from little things, like colours, textures, aromas, even our customers might come with absolutely amazing idea!
We keep all our hand drawn sketches and from time to time we love to look over them again – this way we can see our progress and our journey. We have so many new ideas which are waiting their turn to become the reality. Sadly, the days are too short for us!
Yes, we are growing quickly and selling all over the world: our lovely customers come from all around the world: Australia, US, Canada, UK, Singapore, Switzerland, New Zealand, etc.
We don’t “do” quantities- quality is the most important for us! Sometimes we can be frustratingly slow- time is our biggest enemy, considering the fabrics are coming from other side of the world and we are unable to speed up things. But we have to say enormous “Thank you!” to our customers for their patience and understanding.
