Based in Finland, the land of a thousand lakes, Utu Textiles is a tiny company focusing on sustainable products with a personality. Despite being small, we wish to take sustainability into account in everything we do. Even if our actions are a drop in the ocean, we wish that drop to be as clean as possible! This is one of the many reasons why all our textile products are made of linen and every single product we make is meant to last.
Our fabric comes from Lithuania, a country with a rich tradition in making linen products. All our linen products are designed and sewn in Helsinki, Finland. The designs are printed in Finland using reactive dyes that both allow for an environmentally friendly dyeing process and result in incredibly durable colours. We also seek to minimize packaging materials and use as much recycled and recyclable resources as possible. We aim to keep the burden to the environment as low as possible and the following points are some that currently help us get closer to that goal.
