The most magical time of year has come

Why magic? Because the feeling wearing linen is unexplainable, something you want to repeat and feel it once again.
Our newest designs are on the way, soon will be presented online and in catalogue. For now, take a sneak-peek and prepare yourselves for a magic feeling…
Our favourite animals will have new neighbours soon!
Nicest fishes are coming to “Linas”, prepare your rods!
Piggy year will not come without being noticed – some piggy tails are joining our Zoo.

For many years we have been one of the biggest linen production companies in the Baltic countries. Our success is determined not only by the work experience accumulated over many years, but also by a little secret, which we want to share with you. A success in the leadership depends to a large extent on strong and united team, which moves forward together towards a common goal. Building such a team alone requires considerable effort, and maintaining it is a true challenge. Therefore, we have been working with even 4 methodologies in the company for over 15 years now, which teach us mutual understanding and respect, allow adopting unified and right decisions as well as turning the problems into challenges, and solving the conflicts only in constructive ways. We would like to introduce you to the helpers of our successful work, all four methodologies:
- The first one, which we established in 2005, was Goldratt It perfectly fit for the introduction of the production figures which show us the results of our activities. These figures not only allowed us seeing the contribution of each unit or employee to the overall result, but it also clearly indicated where we are and the direction we are moving towards. Our whole motivation system is based namely on these figures, which we use up until now.
- Then followed Franklin Covey – with the help of his methodologies we learned how to plan our time, distinguish the most essential works, and thus focus only on moving forward and achieving the best results. Monthly and weekly plans supplemented the company’s annual targets, due to which we learned to see our mistakes, learn from them and do not repeat them again.
- The methodology of Adize helped to strengthen teamwork, since it mostly focuses on conflict solution, encouraging us not to be afraid and know how to solve them in constructive way, i.e. teaches us measures useful to the company as well as how to save time dealing with challenges and not with problems, since only after they are solved the company will be able to move forward. Delving into this methodology we realised that all employees are different and we learned not to be afraid – the more different people, the stronger the team is. We always encourage creativity and new ideas of our colleagues as well as the teamwork with future projects.
- Currently we are intensively working with the methodology of Su Lean. We use her ideas mostly in the production processes: we are working using 5S method, which allows quick identification of the losses of the process and taking steps to eliminate them. 5S means: Sort; Set In order; Shine; Standardise; Self-discipline; in this way we try to eliminate any waste, by creating the environment where the employees may quickly notice the problems and immediately take actions to deal with them. Moreover, all employees are involved in the solution of problems: we encourage all people to offer their ideas for the improvement of the production processes.
Internal rules, such as mutual understanding and respect towards each other, only strengthen the effect of the methodologies, when all of us stand together, when we know that no one’s opinion is going to be condemned, and the contribution to the improvement of the processes will be appropriately evaluated. Success is knowing that our whole team is looking in the same direction.
We came back from Warsaw full of good emotions and awards! We were participating there for the very first time and we were noticed – our Linas BRAND collection received an award for best new product of the year.
Even though the trade fair is not that big – about 500 participants from around 40 countries, we felt that it is interesting for the visitors. Many of our current customers came by which is always nice! Most of new contacts we made with Baltic states, Slovenia, Belarus and Ukraine – hope to develop business between these countries in order share our linen and knowledge.
This year for us is the year of new experiences therefore we chose to attend new trade faires for the first time. This month you will be able to meet us in Warsaw, Fast textile fair! Our booth T189 Hall D
Made by kids for kids
This year we did not make any decisions for children. We asked them what they like and they showed it in their drawings. There was a contest for drawings and here, one of the winner‘s Amelia, age 11, has created the bed setting for children.
And here she is – a woman holding the whole factory on her shoulders, but never forgetting to smile. Our new CEO Vilita

FUR FREE RETAILER
Even though it is clear that there is no need for us to use fur in our production it doesn’t mean that we don’t care.
One of our main point as manufacturers is to keep balance between our actions and consequences. We are passionate to support movements that are against cruelty and unethical behaviour.
When transparency becomes more and more important to the clients who cares about how their product was made, we are more than happy to join this fur free activity that spreads the word to the world.
When presenting our newest collection we pay the most attention to the final receiver. That means we put a lot of work in order to get you inspired and show the best of linen in most attractive backgrounds.
This time surrounded with summer festive mood, we present you our Linas BRAND collections. Irreplaceable when decorating tables and upholding traditions.
Meet the people behind you clothes
Have you ever raised an idea “who made my clothes?”? More and more people from all around the world are seeking for the transparency and sustainability and this question is raised very often. Fashion revolution is motivating all of the fashion industry’s chain to show the world how and who made your clothes, which began in 2013 when a building collapsed in Bangladesh with all of the textile industry’s workers.
Our clothing story starts and ends in our factory, from weaving the fabric until packing and labelling. There are more than 300 people working here and most of final production receivers have no idea who stands behind it. So our company, which is always into new ideas and motivational movements, of course took the first step to a big change and we are presenting you our team, who made your clothes.
Have you heard about textiles library? We did. And we a part of it.
Starting working with our new partners Closed-loop was a huge inspiration for us. Being a part of something so important made us think twice about our actions. Even though recycled yarns wasn’t any news to us – seeing how many companies are involved in making world a better place, we feel inspired to grow our “green textiles” assortment as never.
Closed-loop, as they call themselves a bridge, between knowledge and industry is wide profile company, working with many textile companies all over the world. Their main policy is to keep everything in circle – the possibilities of re-using are endless and massive.
There is nothing we can be proud more than knowing we are doing what’s in our power to make our world cleaner safer and more beautiful.
Take a look, get involved, be a part of it.
Finally, we can proudly present our new „Linas“ collections: Linas Modern, Linas Classic and Linas Exclusive, which were carefully selected to match everyones‘ taste. The best quality, latest trends and exclusive package – hard to say no to all of these things, right?
After three generations, our company is taking on a new challenge for the beginning of the 21st century. We are in the process of a change of people thinking and behavior to use natural, ecological fabrics for home textile and garments, wisely use available resources and to choose best products. In order to protect the environment AB Linas development team have launch new project – special collection made from recycled yarns. The collection has been made using linen and recycled yarns combination. These fabrics have special „double“ advantage: linen fiber is ecological by itself because it is absolutely does not leave any waste and when growing – doesn‘t make any harm to nature and ecology. Recycled yarns, such us cotton from post-consumer waste, polyester from up cycled PET bottles are made without using any water, chemicals and generate zero CO2 emissions during production. Transforming the global supply chain to reduce waste, recapture raw material and using flax fiber combination in our fabrics – we have made collection which best contributes to sustainability.
Also from 2017 all AB Linas supplied energy is green energy, which mean that electricity will be supplied from renewable energy sources.
