ProductMaileg Penguin Boy
Maileg is a Danish designer brand with an emphasis on toys and decorations for children. Founded in 1999 by designer and illustrator Dorthe Mailil and her husband, Eric, ‘Maileg’ merges the couple’s surname with the Danish word for ‘play’ – leg. Their world unites childhood nostalgia and storybook whimsy with the simplicity of Scandinavian design. The toys are characterised by beautiful and playful features that give them their own special personalities. Popular with both children and adults, Maileg’s toys have won numerous awards for their unique design.
Linen is a strong natural fabric that gets softer with use and time. Wash linen in the machine on a gentle cycle using a mild detergent without bleach or optical brightening agents. Follow the temperature recommendations on the product’s care label or instructions – in general, dark colours should be washed at a low temperature to reduce the risk of fading.
Line dry, if possible – it is kinder to both the product and the environment and gives linen a crisp feel. If you prefer a softer feel, tumble dry at a low temperature for a few rotations, then remove and hang until fully dry. Note that tumble drying and heavy centrifuging will add to the wear of linen; use cautiously to ensure the longest possible life for your product.
Always check the care instructions that accompany a product, as they might indicate specific instructions due to colour, print, construction or end-use.
