Description from Design Within Reach

Japanese designer Yumiko Sekine uses raw linen from Lithuania to create the Fog Linen Cutlery Case (1999), which gets softer with age and becomes even more absorbent with each washing. With neatly squared corners and basic, functional shapes, there’s an honest simplicity to Sekine’s work, which is also reflected in how the Fog Linen Collection began. When Sekine had her first small apartment, she decided to make herself a few things, like an apron and a cover for her teapot. When she moved to a larger apartment, she needed a few more things, like a kitchen cloth and pot holder. Basically, every time Sekine moved to a larger space, her Fog Linen Collection grew, adapting to fit her household needs. The name and size of each item is stamped directly on the product (this stamp washes away over time) and many items serve dual purposes, such as the Cutlery Case, that can be used as a napkin when at a picnic.
