The crushed natural texture of the Tuiski blanket was what initially made me fall in love with Bonden, the Finnish brand, known for its uncomplicated Nordic design and local craftsmanship. I have been using their blankets for some years now and beside the blankets really fit my home and add some needed texture. I also experienced the comfort of Finnish lamb wool and how it acts as a natural thermostat both in Summer and on chilly days.
Today I love to introduce the Bonden Core collection to you, the result of five years of work by Kati, owner of Bonden. This month Bonden will open a brick store in Helsinki ánd later this year you will also be able to shop part of the collection directly from my online store together with other products I selected. Subscribe to my newsletter or follow on Instagram @vosgesparis or @vosgesparisstore to be the first to know once we go live.
Bonden Core collection
Quality over quantity has been the starting point for the development of Bonden Core. A collection of inspiring home decor, which allows you to decorate serenely and timelessly with natural and refined fabrics. All materials and products are ecologically and ethically manufactured.
Additionally Bonden wants to support the revitalisation of the Nordic handicraft skills. Products are made with local artisans and skilled manufacturers from the materials with Nordic traditions. The collection consists of three blankets: Jurmo, Tuisku and Kajo. And three cushions: Kaarna, Punos and Jammi
Cushions – Bonden Core collection
Within the Collection three different cushions were designed, different technics were used and just like the blankets they all give that bit of extra texture, and can be used throughout your home.
