5.

The words are supposed to associate

to youth culture with an attitude.

The carpets are built on words with

70s typography, and should associate

with disco, fun and a carefree attitude.

Swag means to walk with stylish

confidence. The origin of the word

dates from the 60s when parties

with LGBTQ themes were held. The

abbreviation SWAG is supposed to

stand for Secretly We Are Gay.

Bruh is the thing you call your

friends in a very casual way, but it is

also an ironic meaning that something

is evidently so. Obviously.

Gurl is an expression you call your

girlfriend, of any gender… Originally

used among transvestites that were extravagant,

and it was deliberately spelt

as a version of “girl” as the transvestite

manifests the variety of girls.”

-STEFAN

THE STORY OF MUM’S

By Anna Akhmetova

Mum’s is a small design

company based in Finland

which sells textiles, home

decor items and jewellery

within the country and

abroad. The products are

designed in Finland in cooperation

with some of the

best designers and artists

in the region and produced

by skilled artisans in Bolivia,

South Africa, India and

Cambodia according to the

principles of fair trade.

Outi Puro is a designer,

an artist, the founder

and the heart of Mum’s. It

all started several years ago

when Outi was working as

a sculptor and doing her

communal art project. The

project consisted of a series

of baking performances.

One of them, “52 Sundays”,

included Outi baking buns

at home with her kids

and at Helsinki railway

station. Another performance,

called “Baking for

my long lost friend” lead

her to Africa in 2006 to

bake buns for her long

lost African friend Diane.

With the help of Diane,

Outi travelled around

Africa and met local craftsmen

and artists. She was

inspired by their culture

and their works and also

realized that they were in

the same situation as she

was - trying to combine

creative work and family.

Many of the craftsmen

she met were women with

children trying to balance

work with taking care of

their families. This lead

Outi to an idea of a collaboration,

and she designed

bags which women in

Africa could make for her

art project. Over the years,

this art project turned into

a sustainable design company

employing over 40

people, with Outi being in

charge of the collection.

Mum’s slogan is

“making good with goods.”

The company works in

close cooperation with the

craftsmen and takes into

account their needs. The

craftsmen, for example, can

work from home, which

eliminates travel costs,

saves on childcare expenses

and allows more people to

join the workforce. Working

for Mum’s improves

the quality of their lives

and creates many new

opportunities for them and

their children, who now

have the possibility to go

to school and learn how

to read and write. You can

read interviews with the

craftsmen on page 33.

are simple, joyful, and

functional, in the best

traditions of minimalistic

Scandinavian design. What

distinguishes them among

other high quality Scandinavian

interior products

is the touch of authentic

ancient handicraft culture

of countries like Bolivia,

South Africa, India and

Cambodia. Each design is

adjusted to the techniques

of the artisans in the areas

where these items are produced,

and all products are

handmade, making them

truly unique. Outi works

in collaboration with such

renowned designers as Anu

Penttinen, Susanna Vento,

Maija Louekari, Saana ja

Olli, Heath Nash, Haldane

Martin, and Reetta Ahola,

and carefully picks and finetunes

each product design

herself. The creation of

a new collection is a long

process. A product starts

out from a Nordic-inspired

design, goes through several

changes and adjustments

to fit the techniques of the

craftsmen, and finishes as a

beautiful and ecologically

sustainable product, made

with joy and love.

Mum’s not only aims

to improve the lives of

people in distant locations,

but also serves the Finnish

community by organizing

happenings and local charity

events. Since 2011, in

cooperation with other designers

and NGOs, Mum’s

has been organizing the

Flowerdrops project - an

art event, which promotes

ecological sustainability and

donates all the profits to

charity.

Mum’s was born in 2006 while Outi and her family went to

Africa. These children are happy to go to school. And their

parents are even happier to be able to provide them the possibility

to go to school and learn things. Most of MUM’s

handicrafters cannot read or write, because they did not

have a chance to go to school as kids.

YES!

CARRIED IN BLOOD,

MADE BY HEART

STORIES OF MUM’S ARTISANS

while a large one (170cm

x 240cm) takes about a

week. When sitting by

the loom, they performed

inherited skills from their

forefathers. Now they are

able to weave their own

dreams.

- It all happened when

we were in need of some

exposure. I was a bit lucky

to be a part of Mum’s.

Craftsmen from South

Africa shared with us some

real changes in their lives.

Before cooperating with

Mum’s, they spent most of

the time at street markets

waiting for buyers, having

no idea what the future

holds for them. Now

they can work from home

and get a decent income

on a regular basis. These

efficient craftsmen are able

to create ten small-sized

trophy heads or seven tailor-made

hangers in only

one day. Angus, the person

who is in charge of the telephone

BEAD products* is

obviously passionate about

his job since he dreamed

for ‘more work’. Mum’s

has introduced a modern

SoHo working style to

those craftsmen and workers.

Now they also have

more opportunities to get

out of the ‘poverty trap’

in that society which they

described as unequal.

The interviewed

craftsmen all expressed

their love for Mum’s.

They feel that their skills

and hard work are greatly

appreciated. They get fair

salaries. The phrase ‘full

transparency’ was used by

the craftsmen to describe

their business relationship

with Mum’s. They are

very proud to say that they

get compliments, a lovely

bonus, for their products.

When asked what they

want to say to Mum’s, they

put it in a very Nordic way,

simple and practical.

- Long live Mum’s!

Mum’s products are

100% handmade by skillful

craftsmen in Asia, Africa

and South America. There

are young talents who are

only in their 20s and there

are also experienced craftsmen

who have been in

the business for almost 30

years. To them, handicraft

skill is embedded in their

blood.

Babulal, Dinesh, Ravi,

Surender, Akbar ali,

Rabban ali...these Indian

craftsmen have been working

with Mum’s for almost

3 years now. They make

carpets, floor cushions,

bags and wall hangings.

Through their clever

hands, a small carpet

(90cm x 200cm) can be

made in three to four days

OUT OF THE TRASH BIN

RECYCLING LOCAL MATERIALS FOR GLOBAL GOOD

By Viktoriya Kuzina

& Marianna Haavisto

What do telephone

wires, plastic bottles,

paper and cotton have in

common? Any of them

can be found in Africa.

Any of them can also be

used to bring amazing interior

design items to life.

From small jewelry to full

size chairs and mirrors –

Mum’s always relies on

local recycled materials

and factory leftovers as a

primary source of working

materials.

Mum’s hires people

to gather recyclable waste

providing employment in

localities all over the world

with a fair payment to its

workers. Every type of

waste may be later used and

turned into a piece of art:

a chair with a hand-knotted

seat made of recycled

plastic, a lampshade made

of bottles and canisters,

cushions made of reclaimed

cotton and many others.

Mum’s tracks down the

origin of the materials to

ensure they were ethically

produced and obtained.

For example, instead of

wool gathered by mulesing

techniques Mum’s relies

on painlessly sheared hy-

po-allergenic alpaca wool

from Bolivia, along with

leather leftovers of shoes

production from Africa,

hand-dyed sari cuts from

India, and Cambodian silk.

By re-using locally

gathered materials and factory

leftovers at the workshops,

Mum’s votes for

better working conditions

and a cleaner environment

as well as for animal-friendly

and cruelty-free production

principles. Choosing

Mum’s products does not

only support the ethical

design principles but also

unites people around the

world.

“EVERY TYPE OF

WASTE MAY BE LATER

USED AND TURNED

INTO A PIECE OF ART.

IT’S JUST THINKING

USED MATERIAL THE

NEW WAY.” -THE BIRD

Mum’s uses various types of ethical materials: local, first class wool in India and Bolivia, surplus and recycled

materials in Cambodia and South Africa. We have made sure no mulesing technique is used within

shearing as it is very painful for an animal. The raw material is processed into fine desing in the hands

of local artisans.
