Smiley design Tomi Leppänen

Design: Tomi Leppänen

Tomi Leppänen is a Finnish graphic designer behind Typewriter collection. A collection of rugs for both out- and indoors, textile handmade of recycled plastic bottles and details embroidered by hand. Inspiration for Typewriter rug Collection comes from Tomi's obsession with typography. Freshly Nordic, joyful and minimalistic design is a study of the four most basic glyphs. Tomi is obsessed with the smiley symbol and emotions and those became the theme for the Typewriter collection.

This is not 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 rugs of Typewriter collection are all handmade and ethically produced. This is an ecological rug, spreading joy in these times we live in now. We need more smiles. Let the smiles spread around your home and offices with Tomi's joyful, Nordic and minimalistic design.

Custom made on order. If you wonder about a custom size 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 in 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, it became the name for a sustainable brand "Mum's Good with Goods". Over 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, and save travel costs to operate. Materials are local either natural or recycled, and each Mum's product is signed by the artisan who made it.

Mum’s carpets are made to order only. We manufacture all our carpets according to your wishes. The size selections available on the website are examples of the most demanded sizes based on the typical Scandinavian living room sizes. We hope they are useful when choosing the correct carpet size for your needs. Unfortunately, we cannot provide return or refund options for the made-to-order products.
