Wood is our favorite material, because it has many ecologically friendly properties. It’s renewable and biodegradable material. Trees grow naturally and use the energy from the sun. When we contribute carbon dioxide to the atmosphere with our actions (by using fossil fuels, our food production etc.), trees absorb it and release clean oxygen. Wood products continue to store much of this carbon dioxide. Wood is about 50 percent carbon by dry weight. Trees are important, when fighting against the climate change.
Finnish and European wood
For us is important, that all the material we use origins in Europe. This way we can be sure, that the wood is certified and comes from well cared forests. Different factories from Lohja, Hollola and Kuopio deliver wood to us. The factories are located in Finland. These factories deliver only FSC certified wood, which means responsibly managed forests. Curly birch, birch bark and pine origins in Finland. Some of the wood we use origins in Estonia. Our oak origins in Germany. We use mainly Finnish wood.
Recycled silver and gold
The use of precious metals can harm environment and often the mining conditions hurts human rights. That's why we use recycled silver or gold in our jewelry. Recycled silver comes from cleaned scrap for example from electronic devices, that are not in use anymore. Precious metals are 100% recyclable materials. Our gold and silver parts are handmade by us at our studio or cast in Finland and finished by us. We use also half made products like chains and earring backs. These are partly made of recycled silver. They are produced in Germany and Italy. We have a goal to find a recycled silver chain producer in Europe to be able to offer all the silver in our jewelry 100% recycled.
Designed and handmade in Finland
Our goal is to make long lasting products in the perspective of design and the quality of the products. We both have a special know-how to make products. Our manufacturing techniques have roots in traditional and innovative woodwork and goldsmithing. We produce all wooden parts at our workshop in Karkkila, Finland. Finishing of the products are made by hand. This way we want to honor the material and give a hand made touch to it. Every handmade product has its own character and story to tell. We want that our products are handmade of high quality and ecological materials and they are handcrafted ethically.
