In 1917 Juho Annala, the grandfather of Juha Hjelt, founded a felt boot factory in Lapua, Finland. In the 30's, Juha's father and uncle bought first weaving machines, and industrial weaving began. This was the beginning of the story of Lapuan Kankurit.
We love snow and the Finnish winter! Cold or warm – you can always celebrate the world’s best pure organic materials; wool and linen.
How could the Nordic people ever survive without warm wool? Pure new wool is a 100% organic material which we use to weave stylish blankets, shawls and scarfs.
Crispy autumn evenings are a perfect time to gather around the table with your loved ones. We wish to inspire you – see how cosy our multiuse kitchen textiles are!
