Master blacksmith Jarkko Kaartilanmäki and textile designer Riikka Kaartilanmäki’s shop and studio premises in the milieu of an old public school in Sulkava.
Aapiste is Riikka’s brand specializing in hand-printed interior textiles. Tuakon Takomo is a blacksmith’s workshop founded by Jarkko in 2003, which produces forged collections for interior decoration and larger, custom-ordered items. These two share a studio and shop in the school yard, in an old teachers’ dormitory. The shop is open regularly in the summer and as agreed in the winter.
