And it means we use high-quality natural materials and carefully fine-tuned designs.

Sagalaga Design

Our long, cold winter leaves an indelible mark on the north; nature appears cloaked in simplicity and silence. But gaze at the gray skies and white expanses of snow, give into fifty days of unbroken night, and you'll find countless nuances, endless shifts of shape and color. Sagalaga Design creates distinctly Scandinavian products inspired by the simple aesthetics of Nordic nature. All of our products are designed and manufactured in Finland.

Suomi-Finland Knife in a Wooden Gift Box

The roots of the Suomi-Finland knife go back more than 20 years. When Finland celebrated 80 years of independence in 1997, Marttiini naturally celebrated the event by making a knife. The design of the knife was updated in 2009. The Finnish Lion is cast in bronze at the end of the handle, and the knife carries the strong spirit of Finnish perseverance with which our forefathers secured the independence of our nation. The Lion is also printed on the sheath.

Handcrafted Jewellery by GULDVIVA

By the side of the road, flying between straws of grass, at the edge of the pier, creeping over the rocks – the seeds for GULDVIVA jewellery start to grow.

The nature and surroundings on the Åland Islands provide Head Goldsmith Maria Karlström with shapes and forms for her unique jewellery.
