Kauniste's calendar tea towel for 2022 features a charming illustration by Riikka Laakso. The theme of the illustration is very Finnish: it depicts typical cottage life activities. The names of the months are printed in Finnish, so besides wiping your hands or drying dishes, you can use the towel to practice your Finnish. The towel is made of a lovely blend of linen and cotton.
The tea towel's illustration offers a playful glimpse into the Finnish mindset and way of life. Many Finns have a cottage of their own that serves as a hideaway and holiday home, offering them a getaway from their hectic everyday lives. At the cottage, Finns like to unwind and tune into nature: go to the sauna, ski, fish or pick mushrooms. Typical activities also include cottage TLC, like gardening or carrying firewood – which often also offers a sense of connecting to nature!
