Birch trees are the national tree of Finland, so it is only fitting that the Lapuan Kankurit Koivu White/Black Table Runner features a print of them. Stretching seemingly endlessly across this 100% linen table runner, the beautiful bark and branches of the birch (koivu) trees will look lovely spread across a dining room table. This table runner could also be used as a wall hanging, perfect for a long and narrow spot on the wall next to a door or between windows that needs an extra something. For everyday use or to display a centerpiece during the holidays, the Lapuan Kankurit Koivu White/Black Table Runner will surely be a conversation piece during your next meal.
Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, and it is now run by Esko Hjelt and his wife Jaana. The family business began as a wool and felt boot factory in 1917 creating quality wool textiles. Today, the same heart and soul goes into Lapuan Kan... More Lapuan Kankurit
More subtle in the tones of grey than in the photo, but lovely nonetheless. This is a remarkable Finnish weaving company with a terrific aesthetic. Love everything they do, from blankets to kitchen accessories.

I have purchased similar table runners in the past and they were of high quality. The black and white birch tree table runner is very nice.

Lovely table runner
I received a pillow made from this fabric as a gift and liked it so much that I decided to purchase the table runner, too. It did not disappoint---it adds a lovely natural touch to our dining table!

BIRCH TREE HEAVEN!
I have been eyeing this item for quite some time so when it went on sale I jumped on it. I didn't pay attention to the size so I was surprised that it was shorter than expected; it would probably fit better on a coffee table. But I find that I like the look of it centered on my dining table and don't mind that it doesn't hang over the ends. The only other thing I find is that it doesn't lay flat-it tends to bunch up a bit-but maybe if I iron it that will resolve the issue. Other than that I am very pleased. I love the birch tree motif as it speaks to my Finnish soul! tI is modern yet traditional at the same time.

Feels like Finland!
Beautifully woven. Very fine linen. The pattern just makes us think of the northwoods. When I saw this on the FinnStyle website, I knew I had to buy it for my wife, who is Finnish descent. It arrived about two weeks before Christmas, and I of course hid it and wrapped it for under the tree. Funny... we were out shopping a few days before Christmas and my wife said, as she examined some mass produced dining cloths "Hey, we should get a new table runner for Christmas!" I responded "We have plenty of table runners, That's the last thing we need more of!" She was very pleased when she opened this wonderful table runner. FinnStyle: You make it easy to surprise my Finnish wife. Thank you!

Striking graphic design
I bought this for my niece whose late mother was Finnish. My niece was very pleased with this gift and an earlier gift from this same Finnish mill. Wonderful quality.

Nothing Says Finland Like Birch Trees!
This runner pays tribute to the national tree of Finland. The fun birch tree pattern is woven into the textile rather than printed, so it should look great for years to come.
ProsMade in Finland!
