THE MATERIAL

Nature's creation

Birch-bark has been used for centuries in traditional items in Finland. Birch-bark has even been dubbed as the "plastic of old days" due to its versatility and durability.
The birch-bark used in the weaving of our special bag editions is hand picked to be used in our bags from left-over materials from logging [hakkuu] in Finland. It has been collected to ensure nothing goes to waste from the valuable resources the forest gives us.
