THIS YEAR MARKS 10 YEARS SINCE we launched our first collection of screen printed kitchen towels at the Helsinki Design week.
The idea behind the collection was to combine young illustrators' art prints into an everyday useful item, the kitchen towel.
This is still the essence of Kauniste goods today.
into the woodlands
This fall and winter we are thrilled to work with Laura Carlin, an english illustrator and ceramist. in the new pattern, the woodlands, we apply her original artwork on our signature linen & cotton textiles.
woodlands was selected as the topic, as the quirky animals hiding in the woods also fit the Finnish mindset and landscape.
forest can be a magical place if you roam free and let your mind wander.
Kauniste calendar towel for 2019 is illustrated by Riikka Laakso, a Finnish artist living and working in Berlin. The calendar shows the year’s of the month placed into geometric plants and pots.
Traditionally you hang the calendar towel on the kitchen wall for the year. When the year is over you can use it as a kitchen towel and put a new one on the wall again.
This calendar is available in two colors, only in Finnish language. You can also find it as a paper poster version.
With our background in craftsmanship, we emphasize high quality manufacturing and natural materials.
oUR SIGNATURE LINEN & COTTON MATERIAL IS made in Europe from spinning of the yarn to printing and sewing of the final product.
LINEN GETS SOFTER AND SOFTER IN EVERYDAY USE.
