Finnish Tomi Leppänen is a graphic designer who loves the typography. While exploring Bauhaus history he found an inspiration from a surprising technique: textile designer Anni Albers, during around in 1930 had made experimental "drawings" using typerwriter-characters, with the aim of creating textile patterns. So did Tomi climb up to their attic to find an age old typewriter, and began creating his own patterns filled with dots and lines, playful smileys as well minimalist, abstract patterns and landscapes.. Mum's artisans have embroidered Tomi's patterns on rugs, made of 100% recycled pet bottles. Named " Smiley, High Society, View, Visionaire, Kvartet" also tell a sory of Tomi's collection. Kind of like all kinds of people, in a typographic form.

Year 2018 Japanese "Minä Perhonen" chose Tomi's work as a winner of Nordic Design for New Designers competition in Osaka, Japan. Also then the idea for the winning work was based on typography.

 

MUM's

Mum's was born in South Africa 2006, when Finnish Outi, an artist, and mum herself, collaborated with 15 African women. They made sculptures for an exhibition in Finland, all weaved by hand, designed by Outi, empowering women who worked from home. All women were mothers, so the project was named MUM's.

Later on, it turned to be a name for a sustainable brand "Mum's Good with Goods". During the years a tiny art project has slightly developed into a sustainable design company, combining designers with sustainable production. Mum's has got production in four developing countries India, South Africa, Cambodia, and Bolivia. Everything is handmade as far as possible, people work from home, save travel costs to work. Materials are local either natural or recycled, and each Mum's product is signed by the artisan who made it.
