Designer: Heini Riitahuhta
Heini Riitahuhta graduated from Aalto University, Ceramic and Glass Design department, in 2002 and now works as an independent artist in the Arabia Art Department. This versatile designer is well known internationally: she received the honourable mention in Mino, Japan. Heini and Lapuan Kankurit share the same values: respect for nature, striving for beauty and simplicity.
Heini’s inspiration flow from her childhood memories of her Grandmother in her garden, surrounded by the smells of the earth and the perfume of the flowers. Her beloved RUUT designs parallel her ceramic works with the same hexagon forms she uses which are also found in the ceramic works throughout the Arabianranta courtyard.
Wash separately at 60°C in plenty of water. 40°C is also an adequate wash temperature. Avoid softener and bleach. Do not tumble dry. Normal spin cycle. Iron the textile with cotton settings. The colour of natural linen becomes lighter with washing. Remember to take the textiles out of the sauna always after use, do not dry textiles inside sauna.
