The New Suomussalmi graphic design used in this product is a part of a centuries-old craft tradition in Suomussalmi community. The idea for the design comes from the wool woven Suomussalmi-raanu (a traditional heavy woven rug, used as bed cover and wall textile), which was originally inspired by different shawl patterns used in villages in Suomussalmi at the 1800-century.
Colours of the New Suomussalmi design fabrics are almost the same as in the original The New Suomussalmi design products want to give respect to Finnish handcraft tradition. Products are practical and high quality. Our textile products are locally designed and made in Suomussalmi Finland.
The name of the company, Kaihlalahti Clothing, comes from Kaihlalahti-bay near our home, that is part of the beautiful Kiantajärvi.
