For the first time, LinenMe took part in a traditional Christmas Fair – the Spirit of Christmas – held at Kensington Olympia in the beginning of November. It is wonderful to realise that linen as a fabric is still enjoying immense popularity, and handmade goods are appreciated as never before!
We had a corner stand with lovely neighbouring stalls and managed to chat to nearly everyone that came by – taking time to explain the advantages of huckaback towels, to show the craftsmanship of Lithuanian embroidery and hemstitching professionals, as well as to demonstrate the widest possible range of linen napkins and tablecloths.
The most popular item was our handmade linen rose brooches, which are ideal if worn as an accessory or used as a table decoration. The most attractive set of products was LinenMe napkin range, from plain natural to dazzling greens, reds and oranges. Some visitors expressed their surprise that you could actually get linen napkins of such vibrant colours. Guests also praised high quality and immaculate handwork – thank you for your feedback!
Since it was a Christmas Fair, LinenMe presented a few items that could be either Christmas gifts or home accessories used for this most important family occasion of the year. One of them – luxurious linen tablecloth called Queen. Pure linen tablecloths add elegant touch to any table and look better with age, as linen fabric feels smoother and softer after a few washes.
Many visitors were pleasantly surprised when told that all LinenMe linens were Lithuanian, also known as Baltic, and not Irish. On a few occasions we even provided a short introduction to Lithuania!
All manufacturing of LinenMe linens takes place in Lithuania, and we felt we could use its national stone – amber – to create excellent table accessories, amber napkin rings. They will be available from LinenMe shop soon.
