Finnish carpet art

Just trying out some patterns...

Today, after 7 years of planning, I finally made it to Hurissalon matto ja tekstiili, a carpet workshop located in Puumala, Finland. The two engines behind this, Irja Piskonen and Kirsi Hulkkonen, are true artists. We have so much to be proud of, my dear fellow Finns.

WOOL in its many forms

This beautiful work is carried out in an old barn.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
