Lapuan Kankurit has teemed up with Finnish artist Teemu Järvi to create a series of kitchen textiles that will transport you into the Finnish forest.
Teemu uses a traditional reed pen to draw his subjects. Like a hunter-gatherer of old, he has a deep connection with the tools and models he uses.
This striking kitchen towel features the magnificent Huuhkaja, the Finnish name for the Eurasian Eagle Owl.
Although designed to dry the dishes we have a feeling many will end up hung on the wall, it really is a woven work of art!

Once upon a time there was a man named Juho Annala. The Ostrobothnian winters were freezing cold, so Juho decided to open a wool and felt boot factory in Lankilankoski. He worked so hard that year that he did not realise how important it would turn out to be: it was 1917, and in December an independent nation called Finland would be born. The years went by, the wool textiles sold well and children were born.
Nearly a hundred years later, Lapuan Kankurit is a family business that weaves Finnish quality. Felt boots have been replaced by linen, but the idea is the same: to do it right from the beginning and only the best is good enough. Each woven metre of fabric tells a story of Finnish handicraft.
