Lapuan Kankurit's roots go all the way back to 1917, when the family established their first textile factory. Today Lapuan Kankurit are lead by the fourth generation of weavers, Jaana and Esko Hjelt, together with capable and committed top professionals of the weaving industry. The past generations left the secrets to weaving, appreciation for hard work and a solid foundation built on values.

Lapuan Kankurit weaves Nordic design, inspired by pure and rugged nature. To balance out the chilling climate of the north, they weave heaps of warmth and softness into their textiles.

Everything Lapuan Kankurit does is transparent, and their materials can be traced back to their origin. They only use natural raw materials, such as linen and wool.

Lapuan Kankurit weaves a better future.
