Barena Venezia

1

i haven’t been able to get the spring lookbook for Barena Venezia out of my mind since spotting it at Honey Kennedy yesterday. Jen and i were actually swooning over it on twitter too, and we might have gone off on a tangent about bearded men and Roman gods… and bearded men as Roman gods (or in this case, Venetian gods). but please, don’t get side tracked. i need you to focus here.

love the goods from fog linen work


Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and house ware 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 productsto other European countries since the Middle Ages. This led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania. Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years, 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.
