Placemat with Colored Stripes
Kenya's colors in Finnish weaving tradition
Lapuan Kankurit, a weaving mill based in the small western Finnish town of Lapua, specializes in linen and jacquard fabrics. For this pure linen placemat, Lapuan has teamed up with Mifuko, another Finnish label, whose designs are inspired by Kenyan tradition and craftsmanship. This stems from the two designers' long-standing ties with Kenya, which eventually led to a collaboration with Kenyan artisans.
The shawl owes its design and cheerful colors to this Kenyan influence, as yarn-dyed stripes of varying widths are woven into the natural white base. After weaving and making up, the linen fabric is washed on site, giving it a soft handle and a lively structure - but this also means that it can no longer be perfectly ironed. Only the best linen yarns from long-fiber flax of European provenance are woven on the looms of the company, which is now in its fourth generation. The matching tablecloth and a tea towel are also available.
