Surprise your loved ones – Sustainable gift guide for the Holiday Season

The Holiday season is all about spending time with your loved ones. By preparing little surprises with a special thought in them, the magic spreads around you!

We have gathered a selection of our favourite gift ideas for your inspiration. The selection includes mostly everyday design products that are made without producing new materials and minimizing the usage of environmental resources. In the making of these products, we have added a lot of good feeling and we hope it can be spread to your dearest. And the best part: these gifts come with a story!


BASIS OF A MODULAR WARDROBE

The Kulma tunic dress and Pier turtleneck shirts form the basis for the ultimate modular wardrobe. Timeless design with relaxed fit makes the choosing of the size as easy as it gets. Combining these two designs you can offer endless amount of inspiration that is not bound to seasons.

The Kulma tunic dress is made from recycled rental textiles that have originally been used as bed linen in hotels and healthcare in southern Finland. The discarded rental textiles have been dyed in Kyröskoski, Finland and then crafted into high quality dresses in Loksa, Estonia.

The soft viscose knit of the turtleneck shirt is surplus textile sourced from Nokia, Finland. The shirts are made in Nokia.


ORGANIC MERINO WOOL ESSENTIALS

Line beanies are the best accessory for the winter looks. They are made from organic merino wool, that is delicate enough even for the most sensitive skin. The beanie doesn’t itch and it is warm and soft. It has all the features for thoughtful gift: timeless design, made from high end materials. It is sure to offer a lot of joy for years to come!

The hefty Port wool scarf brings in personality with knit print that is inspired by the visuality of contemporary cargo ports. Like the beanies, also the Port scarfs holds the high standards of best quality and luxurious feel.

All the organic wool knits are made in Tuusula, Finland. They can be washed in the washing machine.
