At Käpynen, we do pretty much whatever we like – and what we like is fun patterns, colour, high-quality fabrics and Finnish design. Besides our own Outi Santaniemi, we also employ other up-and-coming Finnish designers. Our fabrics are printed mainly in Poland. We use as much organic cotton as possible. As well as the usual rotation prints, we also produce small batches of more artistic fabrics using a digital printing process. We mainly produce single jersey knitted fabrics for garment sewing, but are looking forward to broadening our selection to non-stretchy natural fabrics.
Käpynen is a brainchild of two efficient ladies: creative producer Meri-Ellen Pystynen and textile designer Outi Santaniemi. Käpynen is situated in Joensuu, near the eastern border of Finland.
