    Villa Studio: Felted clothes for all

    by nomadig Written Dec 16, 2005
    Inside Villa Studio in Fiskars

    Villa Studio sells felted wool clothes for everyone in the family. Their full packed store is located on the yellow brick buildings in Fiskars, and it is nice destination for those that are interested in woolen products -- especially felted ones.

    Besides clothes, they offer also very warm woolen shoes (shown in the picture, by the way) that are really precious in Finland during winter time.

    Galleria F: Small art experience

    by nomadig Written Dec 12, 2005
    Galleria F

    Galleria F is small art gallery run by the artist Kristiina Lehtonen herself. The gallery is conveniently located at the central yellow buildings in Fiskars.

    I was not very impressed with the artworks, but it was mostly due to my taste for art. For me, the works look a bit childish, but for someone else they probably are uplifting and cheerful. There are a lot of images on the gallery's website, under link 'Kuvagalleria', so check them out by yourself.

    The gallery is open every day in the high season (summer months) and only periodically during low season. It's always best to call or send email before visiting.

    Osuuskunta Tupapuoti: Various crafts

    by nomadig Written Dec 9, 2005
    Inside Tupapuoti

    Osuuskunta Tupapuoti is a collective shop offering crafts from several different people. Most of the items sold there are decorative, and thus the price is reasonable compared to, for example, knive or full-blown chair (available in some other stores in Fiskars).

    Personally, I'm not a fan of decorative items, but this shop is a heaven for the decoration aficionados. The items are well made, and there is a lot of variety in the selection. The items are also small, so they make a good present or a memoir of Fiskars village.

    The store is open only on weekends during the low season. It's always best to call beforehand.

    Nanna Bayer: Extremely thin porcelain

    by nomadig Written Dec 9, 2005
    Nanna Bayer shop

    Nanna Bayer is a distinguished porcelain craftwoman in Finland. She specialises in "neriage" porcelain, a method for making extremely thin, yet durable dishes. All items are lightweight, and a espresso cup weighs far less than the coffee held in the cup. The items look distinctly handmade -- yet their quality is high, and thus there is no industrial feel.

    Her shop, located in the yellow brick buildings at the very centre of Fiskars village, is also her workshop and you can witness how the dishes get their forms. Please note that the shop is not open every day during low season. It's always best to call beforehand.

    Jalo: Unique jewelry

    by nomadig Written Dec 6, 2005
    Jalo store

    Jalo is a combined jewelry store and goldsmiths working post. The store is conveniently located in the yellow brick buildings next to the belltower in Fiskars village.

    There is a plethora of different rings and other jewelry items available, and items can be also custom ordered. Silver and gold are the predominant metals, but probably some others can be available, too. At least if you have enough money to buy platinum jewelry.

    As an additional perk, the goldsmith sells also Tivoli Audio radios. Jewelry for her, a good radio for him...

    Kopper: Design experience

    by nomadig Written Dec 4, 2005
    Inside Kopper store

    Kopper is a combined design store and exhibition space located on the same building as restaurant Kuparipaja (copperworks). Their selection contains the bleeding edge of Finnish designers and chances are that you don't find their works in downtown Helsinki.

    There is a wide variety of items, as you can see from the picture. The quality is high, and thus the price is high, too. There are also smaller items for those of us travelling on budget.

    There are various exhibitions at the store, usually related to newer Finnish design or crossing between art and industrial design. There is no entrance fee to the exhibitions.
