BLOUN is a glassblowing studio creating unique and colourful lamps and other home decor products. The founders, Emmi and Antti, do not use machines or moulds but shape the glass entirely by hand. The same way it was done two thousand years ago. The founders are dedicated to maintaining the ancient craft of glass blowing.
At first, turning leather into accessories was just a hobby for the former boxer Jyri Naskali. He got excited about creating something new and durable from the challenging, beautiful material, which he first got from his old boxing gloves and punching bags. Each bow tie is sewn by hand in Iittala, Finland and the leather Naskali uses is 100 % recycled leather as it comes from flea markets, recycling centres, boxing clubs and family or friends.
Wulf & Supply is a one-man company from Oulu. He had always dreamed about running his own company and now he had the time for it and some vision to do so. After wooden eye-wear, Wulf & Supply started to manufacture clothing and accessories for bad-ass people. As the founder is concerned about our planet and nature, he believes in sustainable production and therefore, every order from summer 18 collection is manufactured on demand. The clothing is produced in strict control of Fair Wear Foundation and some of them are CO2 compensated. Wulf & Supply is also a reforestation partner meaning that whenever buying a product, a tree is planted.
Maria Laaksonen, the founder of Pumpa Upcycle, wants to turn useless textiles into new treasures. The idea of upcycling second-hand textiles into everyday goods came when Maria became aware of textile waste and that perfectly fine fabrics were unused and could be easily modified into new items. Pumpa Upcycle was founded in 2016. Their reusable bags are also a solution to reduce plastic waste!
