Authentic, natural materials are close to our heart at Lapuan Kankurit. We love weaving with linen and wool because of their unique qualities.
Linen is a truly ecological material. It grows with rainwater without irrigation, which saves groundwater and maintains a healthy ecosystem. We use European linen that is produced according to Öko-Tex standards. As part of Masters of Linen, all our linen products are 100% European.
The absorbent and breathable qualities of linen make it the perfect material specially for towels. It repels dirt and dries fast. Linen feels pleasant and cool to the touch, and it pampers your skin by improving circulation.
What makes linen especially beautiful is its durability: textiles soften with use and laundering. It’s also a sustainable choice, because linens can be passed down generations.
The wool we use is for example high-quality new wool from New Zealand and South Africa. Our wool is mainly spun in Europe according to Öko-Tex standards, and we ensure that our production is mulesing-free.
Wool is well-known for its good insulation properties, meaning that you will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Wool has a coating that naturally repels water and makes the textiles antimicrobial. Wool is anti-static, as well as odour and stain resistant, so it doesn’t gather dust mites or require regular washing.
Wool is one of the most durable natural materials. Textiles can last for generations, but they are also suitable for recycling – an ecological and sustainable choice.
