It’s great to be a Finnish company


“The Finlayson textile factory in Tampere, Finland, was the first structure in the Nordic countries to install electric lights in 1882. At its peak, Finlayson employed the majority of the city’s population, running our own day care center, school, pharmacy and church. How can a business established in 1820 honour and celebrate its progressive heritage today? In our view, with the same approach that lead to our continued success – by looking forward, courageously welcoming new ideas, and embracing tolerance and respect. It is in this spirit that we bring you an exclusive and unprecedented collection featuring artwork by Tom of Finland, a hero, an icon, and the most well-known Finnish artist of all time."
