The Selvedge 12 Days of Christmas 2021 prize draws are open! From 1 - 12 December you can enter for a chance of winning one of our 12 prizes. Every day while entries are open we will look at each prize in more detail.
Lapuan Kankurit are lead by the fourth generation of family entrepreneurs: "When Esko’s grandfather acquired the first industrial weaving looms in the 1930s, Finland was still a relatively poor country. Household textiles were cherished valuables and they were durable and made to stand the test of time. In those days beautiful textiles could be passed on to the next generation. To create long -lasting products is still the starting point for our production."
“We are against low-cost manufacturing that exploits nature and yields short-lived product use. We are known for making our decisions using our heart and by placing people first. Everything we do is transparent. We only use ecological, certified natural materials such as linen and wool. And, we know where the materials come from. We are guided by the thought that we are weaving a good life for people around the world. We have our very own weaving mill in Lapua, western Finland. That is where we manufacture our products from yarn to a finished product. This enables us to design our products and processes while keeping the ecological footprint as small as possible.”
We have four pieces of VILLIYRTIT 100% jacquard linen cloth to give away. The cloths, made in Lapuan Kankurit's own weaving mill in Lapua, Finland, were designed by Matti Pikkujämsä who was awarded the very first Finnish Illustrator of the year award in 2019. Beautiful, relaxed and inspired by wild nature this pattern is perfect for easy care 100% washed linen. The cloths can be used as tablecloths, but also as linen blankets for draping over sofas and beds.
