The barn swallow is the national bird and is a characteristic guest of Estonian homes. Its call can be heard from practically every eave or barn rafter in the country. If the bird finds a suitable opening, under the ridge of a roof or a broken window, it will build its cup-shaped nest; it will even build it inside a house.
The choice of the barn swallow as a national bird was mainly the result of a campaign conducted by ornithologists at the beginning of the sixties.
Our philosophy is that our history, culture and values are very important and should not be forgotten.
We’ve noticed that the Baltics and Nordics are flooded by great designs, but they are not really connected to us and look very impersonal. They’re missing a deeper connection to local people. At the same time we see that the Baltic people in general are more reserved in embracing their heritage and local culture.
We at LIIWE.com thinks it’s a pity, because we cannot build a meaningful future without understanding the pretext, values and the history behind us, and, as they say: "For a tree to grow, it needs to have strong roots". In an ever-globalizing world it’s more important than ever to remember where we came from.
Therefore, we decided to give the Baltic and Nordic peoples a chance to have clothing that has cultural value and combines nature motifs with modern apparel that can actually be used daily, is stylish and made of high quality materials.
