The Tulitikku sauna seat cover by Lapuan Kankurit is adorned with Reeta Ek’s graphic pattern formed by crossing matches – Tulitikku is Finnish for a match. The pattern repeats on the other side with opposite colours. Made of a blend of European linen and organic cotton, the sauna seat cover has a feel of quality and skilled crafting traditions. The Tulitikku seat cover has been woven in Finland at the own weaving mill of Lapuan Kankurit.

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.
