Tuokko by Katja Mustaniemi

Interesting product design made with a traditional weaving technique.

Tuokko by Katja Mustaniemi

"Inspiration for this work came from deep down – from my childhood adventures in Finnish forests and growing up in scandinavian functionality.

"I studied the technique of birch bark (basket) weaving and designed and made a backpack with attachable pockets. The pockets also function as additional compartments or separate handbags, and are sized for modern everyday objects like a smartphone and a tablet. Easy and durable closure is created by using magnets and snap fasteners. Material used is recycled leather."

"My goal was to reproduce a functional and aesthetic product which brings the traditional and historically important craft into the present."
