Lapuan Kankurit at Scandihome

I may be biased (in fact I know that I am), but there’s something about the quality of Finnish (and more broadly speaking Nordic/Scandinavian) products that is just extraordinary. One reason might be that many Nordic brands have a history going back decades, if not centuries. It takes time to fine tune a product and these companies have done just that. Take Lapuan Kankurit, for example; a Finnish textile company with roots going back 100 years. They are well-known for their amazing textiles, including sauna towels, bed linen, aprons and much more. From impeccable packaging to the best quality linen I’ve ever come across with, Lapuan Kankurit has every detail tuned to perfection.

This beautiful Maija blanket is designed by Lapuan Kankurit and made in Finland (!) It’s become an instant favourite of ours and one that we will treasure for years to come.  I couldn’t think of anything more comforting than a soft blanket and sunshine on a day that I’m recovering from a cold.

Lapuan Kankurit kindly gifted me this product along with a couple of others, so stay tuned for more posts soon!

Monday Dreaming

Monday again. How do they come around so quickly? Last weekend we continued on our quest to get these renovations started. I know the suspense is killing you (just joking), but I promise to update you more as soon as I have something else to say! At this point it’s really just about finding the right people for the job(s) and deciding on the details (materials and colours mostly).

In the mean while, I’ve moved things around a little to make room for the piles of boxes we suddenly have here and there. This nook will actually be in the centre of our renovations, as this is where the staircase to the mezzanine will go! Can’t wait to see it all take place!
