Karelia Weekender Made For Aki Soudunsaari
Unique piece designed with Naava's CEO and Founder Aki Soudunsaari
Being Naava's CEO means a lot of traveling for Aki, who now lives in New York. He wanted a practical bag that would fit all of the things he needs, even during longer trips. When traveling around the world he often misses the fresh nature of the Nordics. He wanted to design a bag that would always remind him of that.
Together with Lovia's designer Outi Korpilaakso they created the AKI 001. It is made of a Finnish design furniture manufacturer's excess interior leather. The bag has subtle forest green details inside that remind him of the Nordic forests in hectic urban environments.
