Lapuan Kankurit Saari towel


In the beginning, there is yarn. From this yarn we weave a good life, responsibly, respecting the environment. Our roots go all the way back to 1917. 

We weave 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. 



Lapuan Kankurit Saari towel

Textile designer Aoi Yoshizawa is one of the artists of Harakka Island. Inspired by the island, Aoi designed us a new, gorgeous SAARI towel, which bindings and colors reflect the various shades of the sea. SAARI towel is available in two sizes. The generously sized bath towel 95x180 cm is a good companion to take to the beach as it dries quickly between dips. The smaller size towel 48x70 cm is is a multi-use towel that you can use in bathroom or in kitchen. 

The offer is valid for our valued customers in the Lapua Outlet, Helsinki Store and online during July. Remember to log in to get the offer online.

Lapuan Kankurit is investing in a new spinning and finishing mill. We hope to lead the way in the responsible utilisation of Finnish wool. 

”We are a rebuilding a production line that had already disappeared from Finland. We are combining old knowhow with new technology.”

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.
