Designer Helmi Liikanen is an Aalto University graduate, surface designer and a woven fabrics enthusiast! She met Lapuan Kankurit on a study visit to the weaving mill and the idea for collaboration sparked!
Many of the patterns that Helmi has designed for Lapuan Kankurit were created as part of her Masters of Arts thesis. She gets inspiration from the design process itself as she is exploring the materials, colors and structures of the fabrics. Helmi believes in combining design knowledge and craftsmanship in textiles for lasting beauty.
Helmi is behind the new lovely Lapuan Kankurit collections: LEHTI and TULPPAANI. Fun fact: Helmi's name means "pearl" in Finnish.Shop Lapuan Kankurit LEHTI and TULPPAANI collections here>>
