An ecological gift made in Finland

Which of us shouldn’t give gifts. It makes you happy to see the gift-recipient’s expectant-tense look as he opens the gift and the joy when the gift is finally opened. But often we would like to do something good with a gift on a larger scale as well. Improve the world in small steps. An ecological gift is a great option. The first to come to mind are cones and straw decorations, but there are also a lot of great designs and great items to use as an ecological gift. It just doesn’t always come up with these possibilities in mind, or we don’t know enough about the product. Here are a few examples of ecological gifts with a double effect: a happy gift recipient and a piece of a better world.

 

Maxi Jemma shoulder bag, Miiko

 

Hunting deer ensures that their population does not explode. Deer felling is monitored and new felling permits are issued annually. The meat of fallen deer is put to good use and is a delicacy for many. Moose leather, on the other hand, is not often heard to be used, although it is very durable and wonderfully soft. So it is the right eco-act to buy Miikko's wonderful bags and pursesmade of deerskin. Otherwise, this leather would end up as waste. Miikko's deerskin bags and purses have a modern, simple design and are suitable for many uses. When you first hold a deerskin product in your hand, you can only fall in love with this wonderful natural material. An excellent ecological gift!

 

Soy wax candle Candle Light Story

 

Soy wax candles bring a little luxury to everyday life. When their wooden heart burns like a fireplace, you can relax and forget the hustle and bustle of the day. Our soy wax candles are made by Candle Light Story at home in Nurmijärvi, handcrafted from start to finish. Vegetable soy wax burns much cleaner than traditional candle wax and is therefore suitable for even the most sensitive family. The fragrances in the Essentials series come from 100% natural essential oils without additives. So even a candle can be an organic vegan!

 

Vanamo tray Ester Visual

 

There are many on the tray. It’s great for serving, of course, but the stunning images and patterns also beautify the kitchen as a board or serve as a decorative element to create an atmosphere in the living room. Sympathetic trays from Ester Visual are designed and manufactured in Finland. They are durable birch veneer from Finnish birch. Thus, real local production, which guarantees the minimization of the carbon footprint. No long transports, a safe working environment, natural materials and a long service life are the real ecology!

 

Briefcase with seat belts hookoohoo

 

Hailing from Turku hookoohoo makes bags and pouches of all kinds from scrap car seat belts. The seat belt is a great material for use in making bags because it is very durable and easy to care for. Seat belts as a material are also very diverse. They come in different shades of black and gray and no matter how many different patterns. Thus, each bag has its own unique individual. The journey from a car seat belt to a bag is long through a washing machine and a sewing machine, but everything is handcrafted using only machines. This if what is the best recycling and ecology!

 

Tundra Natural natural soaps

 

Natural soaps are made from pure natural raw materials and nothing is added to them unnecessarily. There are no extra chemicals to bring foam or synthetic perfumes in our soaps. Soaps are made by hand in small workshops. In part, raw materials are even collected by hand from Finnish nature. Local production in small batches of natural raw materials, this is an ecological and pure luxury for the skin!

 

Lyyti milking stool, Karppinen

 

Jari Karppinen has renovated his wooden workshop in the old barn building of his grandparents. There, in Jari's skilled hands, sweet pine trees are created Milking stools. Lyyti gets her candy icing in the neighbor's paint shop. Even wastes from sawing are used for other crafts. Through his work, Jari has also been able to create new jobs in his carpentry workshop. Sustainable development, ecology and ethics. In Lyt, if where, all three of these aspects are fulfilled!

 

Of course, there are many other ecological gifts in the store, such as unique wooden jewelry. Take a peek our gift tips!

 

Waiting for the spring party, Johanna
