MEET THE MAKERS
Three Bluebirds was founded by Lynda and Lasse Baldauf, in Old Greenwich, Connecticut in 2013. Having grown up in Finland, Lasse remarks, “It was completely natural to reuse dish towels. In Europe, we never used paper towels. We’d wash and recycle naturally.”
The original Swedish dishcloth material was invented by a Swedish engineer in 1949. Three Bluebirds dishcloths are made with this same material.
“Not growing up in Scandinavia,” Lynda adds. “I learned about the sustainability factor from Lasse. When I visited Finland, back in 1987, shoppers were taking their own cloth bags to the market, like we do here now. They were way ahead of the curve with the environment.”

In addition to promoting environmental preservation, the couple’s intention is “to make people smile” with the towel’s hand-drawn childlike and heartwarming designs, created by Lasse. Embracing Scandinavian simplicity, functionality, and aesthetics.
“In Native American symbolism, 'bluebirds' are considered a sign of love and joy,” says Lynda. “I loved the imagery.” The ‘three’ is for Lasse and their two daughters.
“I love the idea, ‘whatever blesses one, blesses all.’” - Lynda
