The legend

 According to a Lithuanian legend, Jūratė (“Jūra” means “the Sea”), -  the Goddess of the Baltic and the Queen of mermaids, - who lived in the amber castle under the waves, fell in love with a brave fisherman Kastytis. When Perkūnas,- the most powerful God of Thunder,- found out that the immortal goddess had fallen in love with a fisherman, with lightning bolts he killed Kastytis and shattered Jūratė's undersea palace. Even today, when winds whip up raging storms in the Baltic Sea, one can hear Jūratė mourning for her beloved Kastytis and, afterwards, one can still find pieces of amber: larger ones – the remains of Jūratė's amber palace, and tiny ones – the frozen tears of the Goddess - washed out on the sandy shores.

 As Jūratė is the symbol of unique and non-conformist, sensitive and romantic, free and rebellious person we make the lifestyle collection for those who avoid uniforms, who look for individuality, who boast their roots and appreciate meticulous handwork for highest quality.

 

The Baltic heritage

 Baltic region has long standing traditions in linen manufacturing and hand-weaving. Due to its strength and durability linen was used for fishermen sails, ropes and nets. Woven to a shiny cloth linen was irreplaceable in Lithuanian lifestyle: on the table, in bed, in bath. Linen clothing dressed up everyone from the birth on throughout the whole life.

Today, JŪRATĖ use the “know-how” of the Baltic heritage and adapt this knowledge to create original pieces for exclusive modern lifestyle: calm, pure and minimalistic aesthetics, northern seaside colours, ancient weaving patterns as well as unique techniques that have been used by Baltic craftsmen for centuries.
