Tuija's Profile

About

Welcome to my little corner of Etsy.com!

My name is Tuija Lommi, I run a small indie business called Tuuni Design. My goal is to rescue vintage fabrics and handcrafted textiles from charity shops and turn them into something useful and up to date. I sell my creations mainly online at my Etsy shop. Also couple of small craft shops are selling my creations here in Finland.

My shop name Tuuni (pronounced toone) is a Finnish name for a girl meaning something peaceful and calm. It also refers to Finnish word “tuunaus,” which is commonly used when making things from recycled materials.

Hope you'll find something you like in my shop! I also accept custom orders, if you have something special in mind feel free to contact me.

Tervetuloa Tuuni kauppaan!

Nimeni on Tuija Lommi, asun Vantaalla.
Toiminimeni Tuuni on paitsi tytön nimi, myös viittaus "tuunaus" sanaan joka on yleistymässä suomenkieleen kun puhutaan tuotteista, jotka on tehty kierrätysmateraaleista.

Käytän töissäni pääosin kirpputorilöytöjä, vanhoja käsintehtyjä pitsilakanoita, tyynyliinoja, lautasliinoja, verhoja, pöytäliinoja, nappeja, miesten paitoja... Kaikki kankaat on huolellisesti puhdistettu ennen käyttöä.

Rakastan taitavasti tehtyjä vanhoja käsitöitä ja on ikävää, että nämä äitiemme ja isoäitiemme aarteet pölyttyvät ullakoilla tai päätyvät kaatopaikoille. Olen päättänyt antaa niille uuden elämän!

Toivon että löydät jotain kivaa kaupastani! Tule pian takaisin, lisäilen uusia tuotteita sitä mukaa kun niitä valmistuu :)
