Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, a Finnish family business that has its roots in the textile factory founded by Juha Hjelt’s grandfather Juho Annala in 1917. Having worked in the family’s weaving mill in Lapua since the age of 15, Hjelt started his own mill in 1973 with his wife Liisa and named it Lapuan Kankurit (Finnish for Weavers of Lapua). Today, they make textiles from purely natural materials, adorned with patterns designed by renowned Finnish and international artists. Lapuan Kankurit is now run by Esko Hjelt and his wife Jaana and values not only good design but also sustainability and the traceability of materials.
