The Sade collection from Lapuan Kankurit features a simplistic, spotted pattern designed by Aoi Yoshizawa. The design was inspired by rain drops – the spots are all sharply arranged but differ slightly from each other. The large Sade giant towel is made of European linen with the Öko-Tex standard, and produced mainly in the own weaving mill of Lapuan Kankurit in Lapua, Finland.
Originally from Tokyo, Japan, Aoi studied for an MA in textile design at Aalto University and currently works as a textile and surface designer for both interiors and fashion in Helsinki. Aoi creates graphic and expressive surface designs for different textile materials. Her works explore shapes, textures and colours in her daily surroundings. In Helsinki, she gets inspired through her everyday experiences in both the forest and the city as well as the stories told by local people. Aoi also appreciates textile traditions and reinterprets them for modern home interiors.

Linen is one of the most ecological natural material. A true « carbon well », each year one hectare of flax retains 3,7 tons of CO2.
It grows with rainwater without irrigation, which saves groundwater and maintains a healthy ecosystem. The plant does not require hardly any plant-protection products.
Flax is one of the oldest textile fibers in the world. We use European linen yarn that is produced in Europe according to Öko-Tex standards. Our mill is certified Masters of Linen weaver. This gives a guarantee of 100% European traceability of the plant to the thread and the fabric.
The absorbent and breathable qualities of linen make it the perfect material for almost all textiles. It repels dirt and dries fast. Linen it's perfect for kitchen!
A absorbent linen towel can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water - without feeling damp to the touch! The fiber also releases the moisture easily, which makes the towels dry quickly. Perfect for spa and sauna!
