50 YEARS OF STORIES


This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary. The past decades have been full of stories, great craftsmanship and design. We'd like to share some of the old stories and quite many new ones with you during the next months.

STORIA RAITAA is a Nordic collaboration project, which began with a wood material: goat willow (Salix Caprea). It grows everywhere in Fiskars. The tree looks beautiful standing alone on a local field and its catkins provide an important early source of nectar and pollen for northern bees and other insects when they wake up in the spring. Furthermore, goat willow bark has been traditionally used to relieve pain due to its salicin content. For a cabinet maker the timber is refreshingly darker and stronger in colour, compared to mostly very light Nordic wood species.
