Stylish linen clothing and accessories for the whole family

linen clothing

A couple of years ago I bought a bedding set made of linen. Gradually, we added a couple more sets. And by today it is the only linen we put on our beds. It is so comfortable to sleep in and gets more soft with every wash. Pretty amazing!

One of my favourite shops to buy linen bedding is actually on Etsy and it is called MagicLinen*.  A pretty accurate name because linen is indeed magic. It looks great, it feels luxury, it gets even better every time you wash it, it is very durable, and the colours usually only look so cool because of the fabric.

The brand is based in Lithuania (which seems to be the linen capital) and run by a family. They specialise in bespoke linen home textiles as well as linen clothing.

‘MagicLinen grew out of our own passion for natural materials. Thus, we make our products from high-quality European linen fabric that is certified under the OEKO-TEX standard. We strive to be an ethical, sustainable, and transparent business that remains true to its values and appreciates customers as members of our own family.’

And there is more than just linen bedding:

Cute clothes for big and small that you can wear all year round…

Did you know that linen has magic powers? It is known to be the strongest natural fiber in the world. Therefore linen items are incredibly durable and can last for generations. They absorb and release moisture very fast, making it perfect for bedding, towels, and similar items.

On top, linen has a unique temperature regulating ability to keep you both cool and warm depending on the weather. That is why linen clothes* are so popular in the summer, and should not be overlooked in winter! One of the reasons I included a good amount of linen pieces in my autumn styles for mums article.

Pure linen on your bed makes for a very pretty bedroom, just look at these pictures!

Vita and her team take care of all products and give them the personal attention they deserve. She started the business the moment she realised how good her mother’s and even grandmother’s linens looked good as new after a long time in the family.

Today MagicLinen threads the needle between traditions and a more modern, contemporary design.

And one little extra note, the gray blue bedding set* looks stunning! I can vouch for it personally…

paul paula blog

Did you do Halloween yesterday? We did and the kids nearly exploded of pure excitement beforehand… and we are not even really done yet. Tonight is Halloween Disco at school!

And then I quickly realised last weekend that the Christmas craze started. School fair, gift guides, advent calendars that need to be filled (on Monday I will share my 2019 calendar edit – mark your agenda!) and everything else that comes with the festive season. These last 2 months will just fly by… I feel it already.

The Teddy Edit!

The Teddy Edit!

 

Did you know that the Teddy Bear is named after President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt?

He was a big time hunter and on a trip he was shown a bear cub to shoot and he refused to do so. Small stuffed bears were then produced as a political joke and called Teddy’s bear. They became a big hit and an iconic toy. Today Teddy bears are among the most popular gifts for children and are often given to adults too.

Therefore I had a look around to see how the teddy is living in 2019. And guess what, there are some fancy things as well as modern and fun. The teddy coat, for example, is everywhere but that is not all.

Here is my very cosy edit:

 

1. Super warm mittens* to stay toastie all winter long!

2. Teddy coat* – T H E thing for this winter.

3. This will become your child’s best friend – the sheepskin flat teddy*.

4. Mr. Bear wears a cute Norwegian sweater print!

5. Wooden stacking toy*.

6. Oncle Teddy book*.

7. Big alpaca knitted teddy*.

8. Stay cosy with this fantastic trapper hat*.

9. Adorable cardigan* that you wear with anything! (also remember these cute baby cardigans I shared last week)

10. Peter Pan merino wool collar* in green and that exists in blue, orange, and pink as well.

11. Your own mini bear with this cute faux fur baby suit*.

 

Stay toastie! Stay teddy!

Handmade baby clothing with a touch of nostalgia

Handmade baby clothing

Hello! How are you? We had such a beautiful autumn day yesterday that I wanted to share something that looks like the streets outside. Lovely handmade baby clothing in dazzling burnt orange, rust, or vibrant yellow.

Plus you can see this like a little extension to Monday’s article about some very darling baby cardigans perfect for autumn. So, tada, have a look at these gorgeous linen clothes* for babies and toddlers.

Anna started the brand after having her first baby in 2013 and quickly realizing how hard it is to find stylish, well made baby items. And when I think back to 2013 this was definitely still very true.

‘I value quality in products I buy myself, so I take extra time to make sure the items I make meet those high standards. I love creating things to share with other people.’

Please have a look at these 100% linen fabric clothes:

I hope you enjoy these handmade creations as much as I do! And for the cold days ahead this cute wool coat* is the perfect wardrobe addition. That vintage style is super adorable and there is a version with a hood too.

 

By the way, I found some darling tights and knee socks* in very adorable colours that go perfectly with these clothes!
