OUR STORY

Hello, dear conscious summer chaser,

My name is Laura, and I am a mother of two kids. I live in Klaipeda, the beautiful seaport of Lithuania. I love the sea. I love natural products. I am passionate about sustainability. And I truly love LINEN clothes … I am a conscious summer chaser, too. I’m glad to see you here, and want to welcome you to our community. I believe now is the perfect time to share the story of Linen Handmade Studio’s beginning and how it is today.

It all started in my early childhood. My mother was a seamstress, so I spent many hours with her in her studio. My passion was creating clothes for my dolls. It actually was my first small business as my girlfriends started asking me to create some clothes for their dolls, too. When I was in high school, I loved attending various art classes and creative workshops. I started tailoring personalized style clothes for my friends and designed some theatre costumes, too. After school, I studied costume design. During that period, I tailored so many clothes that it was too many to count…. This was my TRUE passion. After my second child, I finally realized it was time to start my own business, which was my secret dream since my early childhood. A memory of my grandmother’s wardrobe with a special section for linen tablecloths was my inspiration. Linen is a Lithuanian heritage, and historically, Lithuanians recognized linen not only as a material for the healing value of the plant, but also as having magical properties. It was and still is a symbol of wellbeing and harmony.

In the beginning, I had a BIG dream and passion. At that time, I didn’t have many collections or well-designed marketing campaigns. My start was very natural and organic. One day, I woke up and decided to drive to another town in search of the perfect linen fabric, and said nothing to anyone. I created the first trial linen attire, did some photoshoots, and sketched the future designs over and over again. And all of that was done during my little spare time while looking after my kids. I simply was “one-man orchestra”. Even though it was a big challenge, I LOVED it so much. These memories are something very special to me that motivates and drives me to move forward.

The number of orders increased slowly together with customers’ love for handmade linen attire.They TRUSTED me and my brand. Due to the increased demand, I started working together with my mother, and later, a few more seamstresses joined our team, but we were all still working from home. I noticed that I spent more hours driving back and forth to visit them than actually preparing/designing/sketching/producing linen wear. As a result, three years ago, we decided to open our first studio located near the Curonian lagoon in Klaipeda. From that moment forward, we felt that we were expanding our creative horizons, developing ourselves professionally, taking care of each other and, most importantly, creating a strong customers' community who value sustainability, handmade products, sea, linen, femininity, quality and the longevity of our wear.

TODAY, Linen Handmade Studio brand consists of values that our team has developed over all these years and appreciates the most. Linen Handmade Studio is WHERE...

• We read your feedback about the linen wear we’ve created together with all our team to celebrate your love.
• We dare to ask you what would be the next linen resort wear and how can we help you? We listen, customize and seek to offer the perfect fit.
• We combine heritage, authenticity, sea, nature, sustainability, and comfortability. We celebrate femininity and freedom by choosing natural products.
• We want to inspire you to value the quality of linen as a “new normal” for casual and occasional wear with all its imperfections (in our minds, it makes linen even more unique).
• Every detail matters. We carefully design each sewing pattern to look most flattering and feel most comfortable. Each piece is made from the finest, OEKO-TEX standards certified linen. We create the lifetime linen products that we wear ourselves, too.
• We all belong to one big conscious summer chasers’ community and each of us can be an impactful earth-friendly change-maker.

Dear curious wanderers, sustainability heroes, and conscious summer chasers, THANK YOU for joining our community. We cherish your support and love you from the bottom of our hearts. Stay true to yourself!

Production time in our shop varies, though we usually need 2-3 weeks to complete one order. We always try our best to finish and ship items as early as possible. If you need your order to be delivered on time for a special date, contact us straight away. We will let you know if we are able to make and ship the order on the same day or the day you need it for.

2. What if I need to change/cancel my order?

We do not accept cancellations but do not hesitate to contact us if anything is not right with your order. We will surely help you solve the issues regarding accidental mistakes (wrong size, color, etc.).

3. Do you accept returns?

We gladly accept returns and size exchanges. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. Unfortunately, unless the item arrives damaged or defective, we cannot accept returns/exchanges for custom or personalized orders.

4. How do I return an item?

Always notify us before sending the return. Include your order number and items you want to return/exchange.
Please, always ship the parcel via post, not a courier. Postal service insures you for the value of the goods as they are your responsibility until they reach us. Always save a tracking number so we would be able to track the parcel. We cannot accept the parcel that was sent using a method other than post.
IMPORTANT: We make a refund only after receiving the parcel and checking if it meets our return requirements.

5. How can I edit/change my shipping information?

If you wrote incorrect shipping information or simply want to change the shipping address, write us a message with the correct one. We will include that to our notes and the parcel will be shipped to the right place.

6. How can I track my parcel?

If your parcel has been shipped and you want to know it's exact location – reach out to us, we will give you a tracking number. Link to track: https://www.post.lt/en/help/parcel-search
Please note that any package to non EU countries will be automatically upgraded to DHL express shipping with no extra cost. You will still be able to track your parcel. Please always include your phone number in the notes at the checkout so that DHL could contact you and you would be able to re-schedule the delivery.

7. How to take care of linen clothing? Does linen shrink?

Linen can be washed in a washing machine – plain white linen at 60 degrees, colored linen at 40 degrees. Use a mild soap for a wash.
Softened linen doesn't shrink, regular linen shrinks up to 8 % but only on the first wash.

8. How do I ask for longer length?

If you need other length of the dress or the sleeves and that is only up to 10 cm include your demand into the notes when purchasing. We always carefully check and complete these notes and that doesn’t have extra charge. However, if you need other length and that is more than +10 cm or requires making style changes, reach out to us for a custom order.

9. What if I need a custom order?

We are happy to create original pieces for each of you though if the item is totally different from designs we create, unfortunately we might not always be able to fulfill that request. If it’s something similar to the clothing we make, we can change almost everything. That includes searching for your desired color, adding details, etc. We are also able to mix different designs together (taking belt, collar, sleeves from other designs we already have).

10. How do I measure the length of the design?

The length of the dress is usually measured from the back starting from seventh neck vertebra to hem. Skirt length is measured very simply – starting from waist and going all the way to the hem. Correct way to measure length of the pants is to measure the inseam. That is the inside of your pants from the crotch down to the hem.
