Lapuan Kankurit is a jacquard weaving mill, where weaving skills and material knowhow have been refined into excellence for decades.   Thread does not come as a finished product by itself. Design, warping, weaving, the different stages of finishing, cutting, sewing and packing all require professional skills.

Lapuan Kankurit history goes all the way back to 1917. Once upon a time there was a man named Juho, Esko’s great-grandfather. The Ostrobothnian winters were freezing cold, so Juho decided to open a wool and felt boot factory in Lapua He worked so hard that year that he did not realise how important it would turn out to be: it was 1917, and in December an independent nation called Finland would be born.
