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 Poro, the Finnish name for reindeer.
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 Felt boots have been replaced by linen, but the idea is the same: to do it right from the beginning and only the best is good enough.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.
