We weave sustainable sauna- and spa textiles, kitchen textiles and interior textiles from natural raw materials; linen and wool.
We weave Nordic design, inspired by our pure nature. To balance out the chilling climate of the north, we weave heaps of warmth and softness into our textiles.
We weave responsibly, respecting the environment. We weave a better future. We develop new innovations and techniques.
Our roots go all the way back to 1917. We carry the responsibility to pass on the craftsmanship of weaving to the future generations,

Pattern Lab20 x Lapuan Kankurit

Pattern Lab is a year-long study project at Aalto University of Art, Design and Architecture. The project gives students a possibility to experience what it is like to work as a professional freelance designer in the textile industry. During the training, students create their own designs in co-operation with a design company, such as Lapuan Kankurit.

 

“It is our responsibility to make sure that both the⁠ weaving skills and design work in the industry are preserved for⁠ future generations.”⁠ says Jaana Hjelt.

Linen is an ecological choice. Ground water is saved, since linen requires no irrigation. Instead, it uses rainwater to grow. The cultivation of linen maintains the healthy diversity of the ecosystem.
