Inspired By The Finnish Archipelago and Vintage Movies

Est. Dec 1, 2008, out of love and respect for sheep, vintage movies and the Finnish nature... Creativity has always played an important role in my life, and the sheep have influenced me since I was a child... Wool is my most important material and I find is just moldable as clay - except with the unbreakable featured if dropped... ;o) I've been felting since 1993. Metal and natural materials fit well in my creative hands too, and sometimes they all meet in one creation.

The surrounding sea of the Finnish archipelago is a non stop source of inspiration as there are plenty of historical and mythical information to dig in to. Folklore and ethnology provide a never-ending source of inspiration...

Vintage movies provide also inspiration with the craftsmanship of the costumes, the sets and scenes and how well even some bad movies were made, before computer animation and other effects came in the picture...Vintage movies made in familiar environments provide some historically interesting sights and feed my creativity...

Quality Before Design is the philosophy I live by, my production is small scaled and I focus on creating durable detailed products. Each item is handcrafted by me.

  • Bruno

    Sr Assistant

    Bruno is a Lagotto Romagnolo who does his best to keep me fit & stop me from working too much. Occasionally he does test the durability of my products as well as my patience... But he has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh on a daily basis!

  • Jussi

    Jr Assistant

    In loving memory ❤ Jussi was Bruno's younger half brother & sidekick, who focused mainly on getting wet and having fun. He had only two modes, ON & OFF. Mostly he was in ON mode and happily squeezed himself in to my product photos when ever possible!

  • Niclas

    Support & Male Muse

    Niclas helps me entertain Bruno and Jussi when I'm busy working, runs some errands for me when my hands are full and drops off orders at the post office. He also poses as my male model when needed and inspires me with his crazy thoughts...

  • Lola

    Assistant

    Lola is our rescue dog from Spain. She joined us right after we had to say goodbye to Jr. Office Assistant Jussi as he was diagnozed with cancer. Lola brought the sunshine back in our lives, and Jussi lives on in our hearts...❤
