The Aallokko linen towel, designed by Reeta Ek for Lapuan Kankurit, features a lovely pattern depicting waves. That's also where the towel's name comes from: Aallokko is Finnish for “waves” or “swell”.

Woven at the Lapuan Kankurit weaving mill in Finland, the towel is made of high-quality European linen, making it highly absorbent yet extremely quick-drying. What's more, linen tends to get even better and softer the more it is washed and used.

Lapuan Kankurit donates part of the proceeds of the Aallokko towels to the John Nurminen Foundation, whose Clean Baltic Sea project supports the well-being of the Baltic Sea – so that future generations can also enjoy its waves.

Reeta Ek

Reeta Ek (b.1979) is an artist, who holds a Master’s degree in textile art from the Aalto University in Helsinki. She has worked as a textile designer for companies like Marimekko, Nanso and Lapuan Kankurit. Ek finds inspiration for her work from things in everyday life, rhythm and colors. According to Ek: ”Good ideas are often born in the morning by a cup of coffee and browsing the newspaper. However, you can’t sit down and wait for the inspiration to come, but it evolves and grows by doing, and also through mistakes.” Reeta Ek won the Young Designer of the Year prize in September 2017.
