The exhibition covers the extensive production of Eija Rasinmäki – steps of weaving, spirit of creativity and rugs from different decades.
Mirroring the impressive 50-year career of textile artist Eija Rasinmäki, Design Eija Rasinmäki – A Handwoven Life brings Rasinmäki’s well-known art textiles and rugs, that have had a recognised spot in Finnish homes and are long loved to the Craft Museum of Finland.
National costumes are made and used by women and men of all ages, including professionals in the field of national costumes as well as individuals who are interested in particular costumes or making handicrafts.
Handcrafted objects as well as objects and collections related to hand made things are available in many of our country's museums, but the Craft Museum of Finland is the only one that focuses solely on craft themes and topics.
For example, the museum records the history and themes of craft education and training at various levels, as well as the history of artisans and professionals in the arts and crafts sector and home industry.
