Lapuan Kankurit Merella Towels
MERELLÄ design is a tribute to Liisa Hjelt, who was the first textile designer of the Lapuan Kankurit company. Nature is an endless source of inspiration in jacquard woven textiles. Liisa Hjelt designed the beloved jacquard wall hanging MERELLÄ in the late 70’s. These beautiful textiles created homeliness and brought a piece of nature on the walls of many Finnish homes.
As Lapuan Kankurit is celebrating its 50th anniversary, our company’s chief designer Elina Helenius wanted to honor Liisa Hjelt´s extensive and diverse output by doing her own interpretation of the same motives that Liisa channeled in her time.
MERELLÄ towels and the woollen throw are the 2020s version of Liisa’s themes in the 1970s.
