Linda Laitinen is a self-taught woodcarver who designs wooden kitchenware and interior products from Finnish wood at her workshop in Espoo. She draws inspiration from the Nordic forest, her favourite place to go for walks. She believes there is no greater power than nature and sees her creations as connectors to the forest and nature in general. She is also fascinated by wood itself, a material that in her own words is rooted, strong and stubborn just like herself. The wood moulds the shape with its grain even when carved, giving every piece a unique and natural form with a rustic look.

Sustainability is a key element in all parts of her business September Co, from sourcing the wood to the final product. No trees have ever been felled for Linda’s creations and never will be.
