Woven Backpack:
Product design made with
a traditional weaving technique

Bachelor Thesis, 2013
Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts



Inspiration for Tuokko bag collection came from deep down
– from my childhood adventures in Finnish forests, picking blueberries
with mom and growing up in scandinavian functionality.

I wanted to create a functional and aesthetic product which
would bring the traditional and historically important craft
of basket weaving into the present.
















































































As part of my thesis, I created a book
about the design process of Tuokko.
(Publication is in Finnish, sorry!)
