Lapuan Kankurit have teemed up with Finnish artist Teemu Järvi to create a series of beautiful textiles that will transport you straight into the heart of a Finnish forest.
Lapuan Kankurit's soft and fine pure wool throw features giant Käpy, the Finnish name for pinecone. Although woven in black, the fine weave produces a subtle and delicate silvery grey, the perfect colour the winter season.
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.

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 Felt boots have been replaced by linen, but the idea is the same: to do it right from the beginning and only the best is good enough.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