Now also a unique strong and durable handmade bag, made of recycled cotton and leather.

Typography and typewriter texting is not a totally new area for Tomi, as he has learned about Anni Albers's use of this technique at the Bauhaus. Albers made some experiments for her textile patterns with using glyphs only.

Smiley as well other patterns of Typewriter collection are all handmade and ethically produced. This is an ecologically and ethically made bag, spreading joy in these times we live in now. As we do need more joy and smiles. Let the smiles spread around with you! 

Each one is one of itäs kind and signatured by the artisan who made it. Custom made on order. Any questions please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

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.
