It is wonderful to see people of all ages spending time outside because in March and April the weather is normally very nice. There is still lots of snow and ice but great time to go skiing, or maybe ice fishing on the lake.
Or why not take a walk, go ice skating, or cross country skiing on the ice road in Luleå which will take from downtown Luleå out to the Islands where you can enjoy newly made waffles.
You can see the snow is staring to melt and water is starting to drip from the roofs.
Being outside, seeing the sun and being active brings us lots of energy and we look forward making lots of bracelets for our customers to enjoy. Right now we are especially found of silver beads that sparkle in the sun, almost like a silver snowflake embedded in the ice, and the colour snow!
We mainly use locally produced, naturally tanned reindeer leather for our bracelets. We have been using the same suppliers for close to 30 years for our reindeer leather and it is a wonderful quality.
The feel of the leather is amazing, it's soft and supple, but hard wearing and tough at the same time. Beeing naturally tanned, some of the leather is suitable for sensitive skin, it also ages beautifully and doesn't require any specific care products.
We only use reindeer leather for our bracelets.
We make seasonal collections, and also do custom collections in collaboration with suppliers from a large range of exiting leathers. So make sure that you subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you do not miss out!
In Lapland, we have this magic fifth season that brings us the return of light after months of darkness.
It is the most magical of seasons. The snow still lies deep, the lakes and rivers are frozen, but the days get longer and longer. Most days the skies are blue. Life returns.
If you pick one season to visit, this is it, but wait yet a few weeks, because this is just the beginning, it will be even better come March.
Jokkmokk winter market has been held for an impressive 413 years, and it is located in the small town of Jokkmokk, northern Sweden. We have sold our beautiful fashion accessories here for many years, and our Saami bracelets have proved to be very popular, so we look forward coming back. It is always cold (between -5 to -30 degrees C) lots of snow so it is a must to wear warm winter clothes. You will see reindeers and lots of beautiful handicrafts from Swedish Lapland.
