THIS IS HOW WE STARTED OUR COMPANY

We dreamt of a house in the countryside and decided to make this dream come true. We bought a piece of land by a lake in a village called Vilikkala, where we build a house of our dreams. The valley garden is verdant and the modern black wooden house is surrounded by verandas with a magnificent view over the lake. Vilikkala is a small idyllic village in south Finland and represents a location full of opportunities for prosperous life.

Comfortable country living has given us possibilities to breathe and enjoy life. Gardening is a state of mind they say, but we reached far in our garden aspiration. In our greenhouse we wanted to plant cucumbers, chilies and tomatoes in neat transferable planting bags. Requirements included features such as the bags had to be really durable and let the excess water come thorough. Such bags were not available, so we simply started manufacturing them ourselves.

Leading idea of our company is to offer our customers multipurpose felt bags. Original bags were meant for growing plants. Our friends found many domestic uses for them as in storing and transporting things from home to for example to the summer cottage. All our Home bags are made of recycled plastic bottles and many of them are designed by our professional Nordic design partners to be part of the home interior.

We hope you will get a glimpse of Nordic way of living from our selection of ecological Home Bags.

MULTI USE HOME STORAGE AND DECORATION

The uses of felt bags are almost limitless. Their affordable price allows them to be used anywhere in your home.

They allow you to carry logs by the fireplace, store clothes fresh, store important things on shelves and, if necessary, easily move them from one place to another.

The bags can be washed in the washing machine, they do not come off the paint, but the size may shrink slightly.

DOMESTIC BAGS FOR PLANTS

Felt bags have been tested as breeding bags. The blanket binds the roots so they don’t go around, like in pots. The blanket allows for a dense and vibrant rhizome. The blanket is also breathable and evens out the moisture in the sack. The sack is especially good in a greenhouse as part of an irrigation system. The felt is an insulating substance that protects the rhizome from frost and on the other hand the felt collects and stores the heat of the sun. Plants can be planted directly in sacks, e.g. tomatoes and herbs.

You should pay attention to the base on which you place the sack, as it will let the water through. In garden use, the sack lasts at least five years. Inside the home, you can place a pot and a protective container inside the sack. This gives you a beautiful platform for home plants that are easy to move from place to place, for example when cleaning. Domestic bags are versatile in urban and rural homes. How else can the herbs grown on the balcony survive the cottage week - the herbs are naturally taken to the cottage in a home bag.
