About

High quality pure wool felt products proudly made with craftsmanship for your satisfaction!

*`•.¸(¯`•.•´¯)¸.•´ ♥ I use natural material, wool felt that returns to the earth.
☆ ♥ `•.¸.•´ ♥ º ☆.¸¸.•´¯`♥

When I ordered wool fiber for the first time for hand-felting, I found tiny hay twining around the fiber. This let me imagine a scenery where a sheep was walking on a vast and windy field, with this very fiber on its body, breathing and alive. Since then I am conscious that I am using the animal’s hair, a part of the nature.

Now I import and use 100% wool industrial felt. It is produced in Germany by water powered electricity that has no CO2 emission. And natural wool is completely biodegradable so when my felt products end their lives, you can bury them in soil to richen its composition.

I started sewing when I was 5 years old in my kindergarten. I was soon absorbed in handicrafts, and countless little dolls, bags and knitwear have been coloring my life.

Also, making things helped me all the time to forget missing somebody important, to express myself in abroad to compensate my poor language skill, and to be confident with being myself.

I love exciting feeling to see a work gradually being done, and love the nice tiredness after finishing a work. I believe that we were born to use our hands to make things.

Today’s market allows you to buy cheap labor in somewhere far away. And what has happened is that we are losing our chances to use own hands and develop skills, and the beautiful moments in creation. I can’t really imagine my life without handicraft. It has been always close to me and I even rely on. That is why I make all my products in Rovaniemi, Finland with my friend, Maarit who is a professional sewer with long carrier.

What we care about in production is quality: we care every section of cutting line, every single stitch we sew, because these are all important details determining the quality of my brand, and we are proud of our craftsmanship still alive here in Finland.
