summer clothing 2022

10 May 2022. Summer is coming, and summer clothing is already here. It's making us very excited for warmer days! This season's collection is a lovely combination of simple design, beautiful detail and bold color. These are pieces you can easily wear on repeat and be comfortable all day. 

Dresses are always our summer go-to, so we're going to mention a few of our favorites this season.

Eleanor Dress: With short cap sleeves, a round gathered neckline and a drawstring waist with ties at either size to customize your fit, this dress is cool and comfy. In Jane and Noisette.

Grace Dress: A small pointed collar and gathering at the bust line are the little details that make this dress really special. The a-line shape gives it lots movement and flow for summer weather. In Acier and Olive.

Rosa Dress: Simple and pretty, the Rosa dress has a round collar and delicate gathers at the high waist. Short sleeves gather at an elasticized cuff, giving them a bit of volume. In Iris and Wisteria

Our other summer go-to? A blousy top over an easy pant or skirt. Here's what we'll be wearing as soon as the temps rise.

Isla Top: Great details like the delicate pointed collar and shirring across the shoulder make this top easy and dressy at the same time. In Iris, Natural, and White. 

Evelyn Top: Gentle pleats at the neckline and a ribbon tie at the back of the neck make this top so pretty. In Pale Blue and Olive.

Thalia Tunic: A roomy top with barely-there sleeves to keep you cool. Easy over pants or a skirt, it can be worn tucked in or left out for a more casual look. In Iris, Flamingo, and Turquoise.

Abigail Pants: These long, full pants allow for ease of movement on hot days. Dressed up or down, these pants suit any occasion. In Acier, Black, and Sapphire.

We've got lots more summer in store for you, take a peek here! 

herringbone history

15 April 2022. Just in! A fresh batch of our herringbone cotton bath towels, hand towels and washcloths, the ones we find ourselves reaching for again and again. If you're looking for a way to refresh your household textiles for spring, these towels are lovely and absorbent for the bath and super soft on skin. 

We've always wondered where the herringbone weave comes from, and it turns out herringbone patterns are ancient, having been found in early Egyptian jewelry, Native American basket weaving, and Roman roads.

When it comes to fabric, herringbone refers to a specific type of weave: a broken twill pattern, which like the Roman roads, has a distinctive V shape. A herringbone weave is commonly found in wool and twill fabrics, but can be applied to any type of material. In our case, we use it for a variety of products from linen kitchen cloths to clothing to our cotton herringbone towels. We love the texture and pattern of a classic herringbone.

You can find all of our herringbone patterned items here.

butcher baker quiche maker

29 March 2022. First days of spring and we're ready to change over our cozy winter menus to lighter, fresher fare. We're tying on our aprons and thinking quiche, which could be as simple as eggs, cheese, fresh herbs and a little green onion or dressed up with spring veggies like asparagus and peas. Quiche is pretty adaptable, you just need a good basic recipe for the filling and then you can add whatever you like to make it your own. If you've got a trusty homemade crust recipe, great, but we won't judge if you decide to use a store bought crust. You can also bake a quiche without a crust, just make sure to grease the baking dish well so that the filling doesn't stick to the pan. Here's an easy take on the crustless quiche from Bon Appetit.

We always recommend wearing an apron when cooking quiche (or anything obviously!) and we've got some lovely new colors to choose from here

If you're looking for nice baking dishes for that spring quiche, we have a few suggestions from our sister store, Pod.

For a two person serving dish, we love the oven safe Poele Ceramic Pan or the handled Ceramic Pan

For adorable individual servings, we recommend these Fluted Ramekins, which are safe for baking as well. 

As for kitchen clean ups, you can find our kitchen cloths, like the one pictured above, here.

So get those ovens started and those eggs whipped up for a taste of spring! 

spring clothing 2022

24 February 2022. Our spring clothing is here, hooray!  With hues right out of a watercolor paint box, we're finding these pieces both playful and pretty. Here's a list of what's striking our fancy.

Starting with an outer layer for cooler days, the Hana coat is the perfect topper for spring outfits. Simply cut in an a-line shape this coat makes a great light layer over pants or a dress. In Iris and Ivoire. 

With so many lovely tops this spring, we're going to have to talk about more than one. First, the Ichika top. We love the delicate pleating down the front and the gathered sleeves. In Rose and Ivoire.

The Anna top in Iris and Natural has a band collar and shirring along the dropped shoulder that gives the shirt lots of volume. To be worn on repeat all season.

Details make the Rio shirt really fun. Featuring a v-neck with an inverted pleat and full sleeves that hit just below the elbow, there's lots of volume to this  pullover top. In Blue Indigo and Lucas (navy with a grey stripe).

In the pants department, we've got the Robin pant, with an elasticized waist and a full leg that tapers to the ankle. Plays well with many tops. In Albatre and Ivoire.

The Sio pant with a full, wide leg that hits mid calf, wears like a pant and looks like a skirt. We adore the cropped length and the easy elasticized waist. In Acier, Black and Sapphire. 

And what even is spring without a new dress? The Mio dress, with a band collar, pleated bodice, a-line shape and shirt tail hem looks great over pants or a skirt. Wear it over a light slip on warmer days. In Black and Ecru Beige. 

This season our dress lengths are running long, giving you the option to shorten the hem if you wish. Got questions about sizing or fit? You can reach out to us here.

More spring styles, right this way.

thanksgiving brass

18 November 2021. Dark, moody, cold: we've got that November-ish feeling in our bones. And we mean that in the best of ways, as with November comes a sense of anticipation about warm and cozy gatherings with friends and family. 

Inspired by this photo of a good looking piece of pie with our brass dessert fork, we went on a quest for the perfect recipe. To us, this looks like a custard pie, and our search turned up a custard tart with cream and fresh fruit by Claire Saffitz. The ingredients are simple, the instructions pretty straight forward and we're going to give it a go! 

If you're looking to add some sparkle to your holiday servings, our brass dessert forks are ready to grace your table. You can find them here, along with all of our brass ware.

Here's to wishing you a good November. May your gatherings be safe and peaceful, and may your pies be delicious.

wool linen for winter 2021-22

26 October 2021. Winter clothing's here! Featuring some beautiful wool linen blends, linen denims, and a mix of our medium and heavier weight linens, these versatile pieces are going to become our winter staples. We hope they'll become yours too. 

While you're probably familiar with linen, we wanted to take a moment to explain what makes this year's wool linen blend so special. While there's minimal wool production in Lithuania where our linen is made, there's plenty of recycled wool material. Produced at an old factory in Lithuania, the same one where our linen is woven, wool linen is a blend of 50% recycled wool and 50% linen. The fabric has a dense weave and a texture that's soft and smooth, with a light to medium weight. This season's blend has a higher wool content than previous years, and when combined with linen has resulted in our softest wool blend yet. 

Here's a selection of some favorites so far.  

Mel Dress: In a wool linen, Mel is in the running to be your winter uniform. We love the band collar and the gathering across the neck and shoulders which gives the dress beautiful detailing and drape. 

Kiki Dress: Your winter uniform part II. A simple boxy shape with lots of room in the body, Kiki is ready for you to layer under or over as your heart desires. In a heavier linen denim that's sure to keep you cozy all winter. 

Gigi Skirt: Simple in design, Gigi comes in some beautiful plaid and check linen patterns this season, just waiting to be paired with your favorite sweater on top. With pockets to stash your stuff and keep your hands warm. 

Lala Apron DressA favorite for layering all winter long, Lala is a lovely take on an apron dress. We love pairing it with a long sleeve shirt or turtleneck and jeans or leggings underneath. Add a favorite cardigan over the top for extra warmth. In a heavier weight linen.

Ally Coat Dress: Tailored across the shoulders with an a-line shape through the body, Ally is beautiful and elegant. To be worn as a coat or a dress depending on your mood and/or the weather. There's room to layer underneath should you need extra protection on a chilly day. In a burgundy wool linen, a herringbone linen and a black/natural check linen. 

Lucy Coat: An unstructured robe coat with a shawl collar and a removable belt, we love the elegant silhouette of this piece. Timeless, we see this one being a favorite in our wardrobe for many years to come. In a black wool linen and a navy wool linen. 

Lightweight Wool Leggings: A perennial favorite, these leggings are the perfect thing to layer under our winter collection. In a great selection of colors to warm your way through winter.
