Dr Elias Lönnrot realised the importance of the fading folk tradition, and for 15 years, he travelled from one village to the next, skiing and walking, collecting this precious information for future generations. Lönnrot’s life work was published as a herbarium, Flora Fennica. It contains a very extensive sampling of the wild berries and herbs found in Northern Finland.
The work of Elias Lönnrot has been a source of inspiration for us. It has inspired us to make our products even more unique.
