Fog Linen Works was founded in Tokyo by Yumiko Sekine in 1993, out of a desire to recreate the sturdy yet beautiful everyday linen pieces she recalled from her childhood. Unable to find them in the marketplace, she set out to create her own, establishing her brand in the process. These long-lasting kitchen cloths are made from 100% pure linen in Lithuania and only become softer and more absorbent with use. Use them as dishtowels or as over sized, casual napkins. Machine wash gentle, dry cool or line dry—a handy loop makes it easy.
