“Labos Nakties” – finest bedroom textiles manufactory
Meet the founder Daina: “My mother's experience was the start of this wonderful journey. I have been using and enjoying natural woolen products knitted by her. Thinking about how mother handmade products are warmer than those purchased at the store has never crossed my mind. Even after removing the woolen blanket, you can still feel the warmth for a period of time. My children have been sleeping under my mother‘s homemade wool duvets for a couple of years. Finally, I have realized that I could share this warmth and woolen experience directly from the countryside with other people."
At that time Daina called her activity as a “laboratory of wool”. In 2014, she offered her clients the first homemade wool filled duvets named as “Labos Nakties” (“Good Night”).
In order to receive compliments and positive feedback about the quality of our products, design or packaging, we have been working really hard. We purchase our wool from the local farmers and hand-wash it carefully using natural soap that does not contain any chemicals. When wool is processed like this, its hair keep natural waviness and lanolin, which maintains the best wool properties. Hand-washing wool is a time and energy consuming work. However, we do not plan to look for an easier way in purchasing industrially treated wool. Doing so would lose sense in the vision of sharing natural and real “greetings from the countryside”. We use great quality treated wool which we cover in cotton and create lightweight beddings. “Labos Nakties” products are packed into “Home Made” packages and shipped to your home anywhere in the world.
We have now added to our assortment softened linen. Linen is the oldest kind of textiles that was used by the Ancient Egyptians over eight thousand years ago. Linen was considered as a sacred fabric and it was used while praying, sacrificing and mummifying Egyptian pharaohs. In the period of the Renaissance, linen was considered as a sign of luxury – linen fabric and pure flax were used by aristocrats.
In order to create the highest sensation of comfort, linen has to be softened. Sleeping in the natural linen bedding ensures the feeling of luxury, coziness and quality rest. Furthermore, linen bedding is extremely easy to look after.
Nature provides us wonderful gifts — we just need to appreciate them.
Philosophy of “Labos Nakties”
