General Information

All-round protection with no ribbons to tie.

All you have to do is slip into this apron because there are no loops or tangled strings, and no fiddling or straightening up to be done. The fabric lies flat against the body and is held in place by the shoulder straps. The two straps cross over each other at the back, thus ensuring that the child has all-round protection from flour, butter and spattering of juice and other liquids. Its usefulness is not confined to the kitchen either. This children’s apron is loose and comfortable for maximum freedom of movement, and can also be worn for other activities such as painting and craft work. Made from durable linen fabric, it will join in with everything. There is a small pocket to carry the child’s current must-haves. We also offer an apron just like this for adults. Both, the small and the large versions of this apron, are woven and tailored in Lithuania for Fog Linen/Yumiko Sekine.

Japanese Design Meets Lithuanian Weavers. Fog Linen.

Living in Europe for a long time, Japan’s Yumiko Sekine has been searching in vain for some practical household textiles she remembered were part of the everyday life in Japan. So she decided to design her own collection. In Lithuania, she finally came across the right technical conditions required to manufacture her product line: Lithuania is one of the European regions richest in flax cultivation and linen processing traditions. Simply brilliant how Japanese design and Lithuanian craftsmanship can be combined to produce the carefully processed fabrics under the label Fog Linen.

Happy End. The Story of the Soup-Kaspar Revisited.

The Story of the Soup-Kaspar( Suppen-Kaspar) begins as a healthy, strong boy proclaims that he will no longer eat his soup; over the next five days, he wastes away and finally dies. The story is part of “Der Struwwelpeter” (first published 1845), a once-famous German children's book by Heinrich Hoffmann. In ten illustrated and rhymed stories, Hofmann demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehaviour in a very exaggerated way. Far from the moral assumptions of this precursor to comic books, we assume, when children cook (or help out in the kitchen), they have more fun eating. Maybe genuine participation leads from the protest (“Yuck, spinach!“) to a curiosity for unknown dishes (“I like curry!“). 
The utensils of our selection for the children's kitchen fulfil all the criteria for quality which apply to cookware for adults: The pots, pans and kitchen utensils are made from steel and thoroughly enamelled. Their enamel layer is very resilient and scratchproof. The cooking spoons are made of wood, not plastic; and the kitchen knives – with rounded knife points – are made by Robert Herder in Solingen. (See the adult’s knives in our range.)
