FOG LINEN WORK
Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing. Its products are leading and defining the natural life style trend in Japan today. Owner Yumiko Sekine continues to be inspired to create beautiful simple products for daily use.
Yumiko started her first business in 1993 importing used books and housewares from Europe and America to Japan. In her search for more products, she could not find affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood. She visited Lithuania, a country that grows flax, whose fibers are spun into linen, and has been producing and exporting linen products to other European countries since the Middle Ages. She was disappointed to find that there were no linen products for daily use available in the stores there, this led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania.
While performing the daily chores at home, you may as well scrub in comfort and style. Yumiko Sekine, founder of Fog Linen Work, treasures simplicity and embraces practicality with her iconic fashions for the home. All Fog Linen Work objects are produced in Lithuania where flax has been grown for generations.
