Jokipiin Pellava, a textile factory founded in 1920, continues to be a family-owned company in the small town of Jokipiin, Finland. A focus on holding home and loved ones sacred guides the refined and inviting esthetic of Jokipiin Pellava textiles. Jokipiin Pellava specializes in weaving linen terry and textiles for bath, kitchen and dining. The tea towels, tablecloths and runners, sauna towels and linens are functional, but their beauty enhances home even when they are between use.
The factory is situated in the place where Asser Laurila, then 21 years old, founded a sawmill in 1920. The place was perfect for floating timber via Jalasjoki River. The company started wool spinning in the 1930s, and domestic linen spinning in the 1940s. From the 1960s Jokipiin Pellava started concentrating on weaving linen fabric and a sewing shop was founded for making finished products for the market. In the 1970s the in-house product development and design had become commonplace.
