Hanging Himmeli | Vaala


Himmeli have minimalist, geometric forms. Removed from their rural Finnish past, they have become decorative objects whose shapes, movements and shadows delight the senses. Himmeli look beautiful on their own or hung in groups  - add an air plant for extra flora inside your home!

Why We Chose Them  |  We love Scandinavian style almost as much as Lumota Designer Johnna Puusa. She has taken the Finnish tradition of creating annual straw Himmeli’s, and using long-lasting brass tubing, produces beautiful designs we can enjoy all year. We love her geometric designs from the simple to the complex that add a boost of minimalist style to any room.

Our sewing facilities are located in Vancouver, B.C. We love having them so close to home. Producing locally means we stay connected to the lifecycle of our garments, and the people who make them.

We can visit the facilities any time we need to and have cultivated close relationships with the people responsible for making our clothes. We are a people-first brand and we feel good knowing that our products are produced ethically in facilities that value their employees. We value them too!

Navigating the textile world is tricky. It’s not currently set up for the most sustainable of supply chains. We are working all the time to find better ways to approach production and make the best choices we can. In the end, our hope is that every one of our pieces creates meaningful conversation around minimizing our environmental impact and keeping our Oceans cleaner. This is how we plan to be a part of lasting change leading us towards a more conscious future.


Naturals and neutrals are the cornerstones of our design method. We apply this to our clothing line because we want you to build a wardrobe that will last. We prefer clean lines, quality fabrics, and a neutral palette that you can mix together over and over embracing a collection that meets the slow fashion movement.

Purchases are intentional when guided by the belief that we really can have more from less. And you’re doing the planet a big favour; by choosing long-lasting, natural fibres, you will be contributing less to landfills and supporting more sustainable production practices, keeping our Earth cleaner and less cluttered.
