One of my favourite product lines Fog Linen Work has just opened an online shop with international shipping. This could spell bad news for someone like me! The site sells the most comprehensive collection of Fog Linen items outside of Japan, including several new pieces designed exclusively for the site. There are linen napkins, tablecloths, bedsheets and serving trays, as well as a small range of women's clothing and kid's items. I love the Fog Linen motto: live with linen - every day. Founder Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and homewares from Europe and America to Japan. In her search for more products, she looked for affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood. She visited Lithuania, a major producer of flax, which is later spun into linen, and was disappointed to find that there were no linen products designed for daily use available in the shops there. This led Sekine to have her own designs made and now after ten years, Fog Linen Work produces a large range of honest, beautiful and long-lasting products designed for everyday use.
