The piece and its engravings draw inspiration from traditional Sámi handicraft, also called laukunleuka in Finnish and choarvi in Sámi. The product was used on the mouth of a bag.
Our Laukunleuka is made of birch. With a magnet inside the piece you can use your own imagination where to use Laukunleuka.
The piece is designed by students from University of Lapland, specially for the UArctic Congress 2018. Inka, Tiina and Petra are studying Industrial Design and have come together at the university from different parts of Finland.
