calendar cloth 2024

7 September 2023. It's that time again! Just in time for the end of summer and the start of fall, a box arrives at the shop that looks perfectly normal, cardboard and scuffed from travel. But this box is different from all other boxes. It's full of calendar cloths, the once-yearly, limited edition cloths that arrive to our collective bated breath.

While the kitchen cloth is the workhorse of the kitchen, the calendar cloth can live as a casual wall hanging, clipped to a piece of twine or pinned to the wall throughout the year. They offer us a snapshot into the simplicity of day to day life, reminding us to live well and mind the passing of each day. At the end of the year, the calendar cloth can continue to hang on the wall or it can have a Cinderella moment, changing back to a workaday cloth. They make wonderful gifts and you may want to keep one for yourself too.

Each cloth features an artist's unique design that conjures a mood or sentiment to usher in the new year. This year, we welcome the work of artists Isabelle Boinot, a perennial favorite, and Yosuke Omomo, an artist and picture book author based in Tokyo. With illustrations ranging from cats and dogs, everyday objects, food and flowers and some playful street scenes, there's something for everyone. 

You can see all of our calendar cloth options here. Right now, all Isabelle Boinot calendar cloths are in stock, and Yosuke Omomo calendar cloths will be arriving shortly. Sign up to be notified by email and you'll be the first to know when they land. 


fog linen work fall clothing 2023

 

04 August 2023. Fall 2023 clothing is beginning to arrive. We're welcoming fall this year with rich saturated colors and styles that invite layering and pairing. Here are some of our favorites. 

Katinka Top: A short cropped shirt with a band collar and buttons down the front, we love pairing this one in Citron with the Ichika skirt in the same color. It also works as a light jacket worn over a tee or tank. In Citron.

Luuk Dress: With a peter pan collar and a bit of smocking at the bodice, this pretty dress is a one-and-done outfit for fall. Lots of room in the body for adding a layer and tights underneath on a cooler day. We love the gathered sleeves, which add a bit of volume and detail. In Rouille. 

Julia Over Dress: A great layering piece, this easy cap sleeve dress with a deep v-neck can be worn over blouses, turtlenecks or sweaters. We love it paired with a top in a similar color for a monochromatic outfit, but wearing it with contrasting colors looks great too. We love it in Pain Brule paired with the Nina Blouse in Rouille. In Black and Pain Brule.

Inge Coat Dress: This versatile piece can be worn as a light coat or a dress depending on your mood and the weather. We love it over tights as a dress, or paired over a top and pants as a coat. It's also a fun piece to layer over another dress. We love it in Ochre paired with the Noisette Emma Dress. In Ochre and Carole.

Lieke Top: An elasticized waistband and cuffs give the Lieke top a blousy feel  without being too voluminous. A nice top that's casual, but dresses up nicely depending on what you pair it with. In Black and Lilas. 

Sem Top: Pleating at the front and back of the neckline gives this a-line top a bit of simple detailing. With a tie at the back, this top can also be worn with the tie at the front if you wish. In Albatre and Lilas.

Levi PantsA fun pant for fall! Levi is a bloomer pant with an elasticized waist, and a voluminous fit that gathers at the ankle with a wide elasticized cuff. Add your favorite top and you're good to go. In Black, Acier and Pain Brule.

Lotte Coat: A robe coat with an a-line shape and a relaxed fit, Lotte has a notched collar, and a removable tie belt. It's the perfect layer for cooler weather with room to add a sweater underneath. In Agate and Black.

Marike Jacket: We love any take on the pea coat, and this one is especially nice. A double breasted mid-length jacket, Marike has a wide pointed collar and four rows of fabric covered buttons at the front. In Agate and Black.

Mirthe CoatA simple coat with a pointed collar, raglan sleeves, cloth covered buttons, and side pockets. An a-line shape gives this coat plenty of room in the body. In a heavier weight linen, this is a great coat for fall and early winter. In Blue Violet.

We've got a small selection of new Tuz and Roserie scarves available, with more on the way. Stay tuned, we promise to keep you posted as things continue to arrive. 


summer setting

20 June 2023. Eating out of doors in the summer is truly one of life's simple pleasures, and while we're happy eating on the back stoop with paper plates and napkins, sometimes it's fun to dress things up a bit. Lightweight and easy to wash, our linen napkins and tablecloths add a touch of casual elegance to outdoor dining. 

We asked our friend, food photographer and stylist, Shilpa Iyer, to create a summer setting for our Josh tablecloth and Anne napkin. We love the short film she created, a dreamy nod to meals in the backyard.

Since this is the season for planning menus based on what's looking good at the nearest farm stand and cooking with intuition rather than following a recipe, we're sharing a few of our favorite no-recipe suggestions with you here. We encourage you to substitute and experiment as you like.

For starters: Fresh mozzarella, ricotta or feta torn into chunks with sliced peaches, watermelon and cherry tomatoes doused with a little olive oil, cider vinegar, flaky salt and fresh ground pepper. With a little fresh chopped basil sprinkled about if you have it. 

Potato salad made with new potatoes, boiled until a knife goes easily through, and dressed with a simple mustard vinaigrette and some fresh chopped parsley, red onion, shallots or dill. Maybe some capers or a chopped hard boiled egg if you feel like it.

Thinly sliced kale, swiss chard, or collard greens, center rib and stem removed, then tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add some grated parmesean cheese or some toasted bread crumbs for more flavor and texture if you like. 

Easy Mains: Throw your favorite protein on the grill and you have a lovely meal.

Last but not least: For dessert, we'll keep it simple this summer by serving fresh seasonal fruit with whipped cream or a few pints of ice cream and calling it a win. And we'd never turn down a good old ice cream sandwich or a klondike bar...we've delighted guests of all ages with these options.

When you're ready to set your summer table, check out all our tablecloths and napkins for the full selection of colors and patterns.

 


natural linen

7 May 2023. Our natural linen products are the foundation of Fog Linen Work. The original line started with a few simply designed pieces in natural linen and stamped with their function. From there, a product line was launched.  We recently asked founder, Yumiko Sekine, to say a few words about the story behind the creation of Fog Linen Work. Here's what she said:

Some of my favorite pieces from Fog Linen Work are the products that made up our original collection. 

When I visited Lithuania for the first time over 25 years ago, I was a wholesaler of foreign housewares, books and stationery. Knowing Lithuanians produced high quality linen, I was hoping to find products to buy. As there were no trade shows or wholesale showrooms, I walked around the city looking for nice linen products in the stores, so that I could identify the manufacturers. Though I didn’t find what I was looking for there, I found a phone book in my hotel room and searched the word "Linas" (linen in Lithuanian). I called the few companies that were listed, but most didn’t understand English and just hung up. Finally, I managed to talk to one company and asked them to send me their product catalogue and price list. After a few days, I received a few small samples of linen fabric with a note asking what kinds of products I needed. I didn’t have any experience designing items for factory production, but luckily I had a friend who had experience making patterns and sketches for a factory in India. With her help, I made product sketches to send to the factory in Lithuania by fax. Our first collection included the Kitchen Cloths, Napkins, Tablecloths, the Full Apron, the Cafe Apron, the Garcon Apron, and a Tote Bag.  We still carry most of them as our standard collection and I still enjoy using them at home.
