Jani Leinonen - LOVE U
For this occassion we are pleased to reveal our co-operation with an internationally famous Finnish contemporary artist Jani Leinonen.
Jani has taken up the challenge and created his first rug that we have produced in India with our skillful artesans. This beautiful piece of art is made of best quality wool and silk and is a good example of Jani´s contoversial and playful art.
In Jani´s words: "Art is a lie that reveals the truth"
The manufacturer of these rugs is https://www.easternmills.com which is considered as the most responsible rug manufacturer in India. Besides of having SA8000, Goodweave, BCI and Sedex certificates among others Eastern Mills also has their own Foundation that is looking after the rights and working conditions of the employees.

The rug will be released to the public during Design Helsinki week on Wednesday 24th of August at 1 pm in our store (Tehtaankatu 11, 00140 Helsinki.)
