Heini's beloved RUUT designs parallel her ceramic works with the same hexagon forms she uses.
A whole life is woven into Ruut's patterns.
The images are a continuation through the years as her children grew. "I wanted Ruut to be cozy like a patchwork blanket, just like life is. I drew themes that are related to flowers and growth, to reflect the shared period of life between mother and daughter. I see the advancement of an important person similarly to a flower in bloom - and of course there are always the hidden parts that I can't ever truly know.
The RUUT pattern was chosen as Avotakka Interior Magazine’s ”Textile of the Year 2015”.
Ruut is a mesmerising contemporary design flower pattern of contrasting hexagons and shapes that knit together like a patchwork, creating a unique contemporary design on this pretty tea towel. Luxury washed linen & organic cotton is woven into concentric circles, mixing with large chrysanthemum type flower heads & clusters of miniature daisies. This soft absorbent tea towel is a beautiful and practical addition to any kitchen, or bathroom for drying up or bathing.
Sophisticated neutral tones & detailed design by Heini Riitahuhta her unique pattern is also available in a large throw, table cloth and other textiles. To find out the interesting story and inspiration behind this design please read more about the designer.
