Lapuan Kankurit Ruut Blanket/Tablecloth
Designer Heini Riitahuhda's 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.
A whole life is woven into Ruut's patterns.
The images are a continuation through the years as her children grew. "I wanted Ruut to be cozy like a patchwork blanket, just like life is. I drew themes that are related to flowers and growth, to reflect the shared period of life between mother and daughter. I see the advancement of an important person similarly to a flower in bloom - and of course there are always the hidden parts that I can't ever truly know.
The RUUT pattern was chosen as Avotakka Interior Magazine’s ”Textile of the Year 2015”.
