MATERIALS: birch bark, hypoallergenic metal
To make our products we use the high-quality top layer of birch bark. This unique natural material combines such characteristics as creep, flexibility and at the same time durability and high water repellency. Birch bark has anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial characteristics. This material is smooth to the touch and partly feels like leather. Birch bark is readily biodegradable material that is made of already felled trees.
CARE TIPS: Birch bark is very easy to care for – just wipe it with wet soft cloth to remove dust or other dirt.
Inspiration for my products is taken from Shaman and Scandinavian folk art that is popular in Nordic countries. In the old days people used such materials that were most available for them and birch bark was one of the most versatile materials. At the time many people had household items made from birch bark, which were passed to us in a perfect condition, and lots of them are still kept in museums.
All designs in this shop are my own creations made in minimalistic, organic, nordic and sometimes even vintage style. All products are handmade in Finland (Lapland). Each piece is unique, as each birch bark has its own color and pattern. No additional dyes are applied. Some products are treated with flax oil.
