Traditional Lapland Utensils by Mauri Pöyliö




Mauri Pöyliö is a craftsman living in Finnish Lapland, over 100 miles north from the Arctic Circle. He is known of his high quality traditional Lapland knives, kuksas and wooden accessories.



Every product is unique and handmade following ancient Lapland traditions. They are delicate looking, but durable just the way they are done for generations in Arctic areas.

Great pages! Good you remember Finland :)

Hienot sinut, ja hienoa että muistat suomen sekä teet suomalaista käsityötä tunnetuksi.

I hope you don't mind that I posted a link on Finlandia Foundation Florida Chapter's Facebook page. I love the designs of Mr.Poylio, and I wanted everyone else to see them, too.
