Natural linen and hemp bedding - the vision of ethical and sustainable production is at the core of the business.
A family company that shows how beautiful linen fabrics can be, combining the tradition and history of this fabric with a modern interior. With a passion for aesthetics, the main idea is to create things that are not only practical, but also beautiful. It all started with rethinking fabric.
We wanted to preserve Lithuanian linen traditions, but gray, rough linen did not inspire modern life rituals. Our formula was to add more color and softness. And it worked.
What started as a small store quickly became a brand appreciated by customers around the world.
The strong point of Linen Tales is the uniqueness and variety of patterns and colors. The company is committed to increasing brand value through long-term development of product, store and distribution concepts.
By creating high-quality products, the Linen Tales brand wants to encourage "less waste, conscious consumption" thinking, in which products are used repeatedly, passed on to family, friends and even future generations.
The vision of ethical and sustainable production is at the heart of our business. This means respecting people and the environment in everything they do.
We strive to create great products in a friendly and sustainable way. We strive to extend product life cycles and reduce our environmental impact in every segment of our business, including design, supply chain and logistics choices.
A look from the inside
Who could tell you more about how Linen Tales products are made than the person responsible for the entire process? We met Inga, the director of production and procurement, so that she could learn about the creation of Linen Tales home underwear.
Q: How many people do you have on your team? Can you tell us more about your team members?
Inga: The production team consists of twenty-eight people. Six of them are department managers, and the remaining employees are people who bring the products to life themselves. The entire team is great, each person thrives in their unique role and we all work as one. One of the long-time members of the team is Regina. She mainly deals with ironing, but previously she dealt with packaging, quality control and many other matters. Now she manages the entire ironing and packaging department, ensuring that the products are flawless and leave the sewing room on time.
Q: What does a typical day look like in a tailoring workshop?
Inga: We start the day with cutting and sewing products for online orders, because they are the most urgent. As you know, Linen Tales offers many different products: from linen bedding to kitchen linen and more, everything is available in many colors and sizes. Therefore, this step requires very careful planning, because our goal is to use only the exact amount of material necessary and generate as little waste as possible. Then we make sure that the sewn products are ironed and packed. Finally, the packed products are placed in boxes and sent to the forwarding department, where they are sent to customers.
Q: What Fairtrade standards do you apply?
Inga: We ensure fair wages by engaging in collective bargaining or negotiation procedures in which employees and their representatives actively participate. The well-being of our employees is our top priority, which is why we maintain adequate ventilation, lighting and temperature control to ensure safe and healthy working conditions. Additionally, we have implemented measures to prevent accidents, injuries and exposure to harmful substances. Our team members work a maximum of 8 hours a day, excluding weekends, and are entitled to 20 days of paid leave per year. Discrimination and harassment are strictly prohibited in our organization.
To minimize their CO2 footprint, they prioritize cooperation with partners in Lithuania or neighboring countries. Therefore, all fabrics are woven and prepared in Europe, which also ensures higher quality materials. T he products are manufactured within a radius of 100 km from the warehouse, from where the orders are then sent to the end customer. Careful planning of the logistics chain to avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions will save time and other resources.
