Christening is one of the first important occasions when the newly born receives a lot of attention from family members, so every parent is on a mission of finding a beautiful Christening robe.
There is a wide range of Christening robes and gowns available from the retailers, and even a wider choice of fabrics that the robes are made of, mainly silk and polyester. I have been thinking for a while that linen could be a perfect alternative, and decided to add a new product to our ever expanding linen product range at LinenMe.
My inspiration came from an old traditional Lithuanian design, originally used by my grandmother who absolutely loved crafts. Since linen was the only widely available fabric in early 20th century Lithuania, she made the most of it!
The current version of this Christening set is slightly modernised and includes hemstitched Christening robe, a matching bonnet and a pair of cute baby shoes. All items come in two colours – white and ivory, and are made to order. The garments can also be decorated with embroidered ornaments, pleated details or baby’s initials.
Robe, bonnet and shoes: 100% linen
Colours: white, ivory
Sizes: made to order
Available from LinenMe – a retailer of unique linen products.
