For most Finns, wool socks are very essential for their winter.
Wearing a pair of traditional wool socks and sitting next to the fireplace is a miniature of the ideal Finnish winter lifestyle.

To find out how the traditional wool socks are made,
we paid a visit to Helsingin Villasukkatehdas— meaning Helsinki Wool Sock Factory.
It is the only traditional wool sock factory in Finland that’s using carded wool yarn,
and very possibly the only one in the world.

[Vol. 6] Go North

This March, we made a “Go North” trip to the northern Finland. When we were planning for the trip, we asked ourselves:

“How about driving through the forests?”

“How about going to somewhere even in the north?”

Then we found Nellim on the map, we believed that’s where we would go. The result is we experienced a life we never had, we could be so close to the nature life, we sat by the fire in a yurt with visitors from different countries, we fell asleep under the starry sky, and much more.

Here we highlighted some memories from the “Go North” trip. Scroll down, let’s go north!

 

Special thanks to Wilderness Nellim, Hertz, Partioaitta, Beyond, Vitamin Well for the supports in this trip.

[Vol. 2] Clocks Bring Us to 2019

There is something that never stops moving, it is time.

In our cities, numerous clocks are quietly living in the corners —
in the train station, on the streets, Although seldom do we pay attention to them, they are there, telling time to the passing pedestrians.

Sometimes, they tell us to mend our pace.
And sometimes they tell us to enjoy the moment.

Silently, they are affecting our life.
Silently, they bring us to 2019.

Thank you, 2018.
We are ready, 2019.
