  • I met two days ago the successor to Lauri Tuoteet, being big fan of Sami knives myself, puukkos and leukus I have not been disappointed already knowing his work through a specialist friend of Nordic knives. The friendliness of this couple is equal to their artistic professionalism so to speak. I took the knife from my dreams. Thank you both for your patience and your good mood.

  • To this location, there is a personal connection on my part, because I'm married for over 40 years with the granddaughter of the company founder Johannes Lauri and know not only the two current wooden building (workshop and the Cafe/retail building), but also the is behind the big yellow House of this family due to many own stays very well. As is also our summer house from there approx. 60 km unit. the pole circle is, we come across on the site of the childhood of my wife of course regularly. Lauri's history: "in the twenties" of the 1900 century founded John Lauri (he came originally from Kauhava and was champion for producing traditional reindeer antler article) his local company and expanded these relatively quickly to establish traditional "Finn knife". In this context, later founder of the well known knife factory "Marttiini", he learned making these knives, Janne Marttiini. The two not made their competition in the strict sense, because while Johannes Lauri specialized in producing high-quality knives, Janne Marttiini pursued the factory-based production of large quantities and also started its production in the remaining factory "Marttiinin vanha tehdas". After the death of Johannes Lauri, the company of his two daughters was (he had a total of six children, three sons, three daughters) continued and then circa 1975 sold by them. The article produced by Lauri (knives, reindeer antler, wood items, and another), as well as pictures are exhibitions and museums, as well as in the local "Arktikum" in various. His knives are next to those other manufacturers (E.g., MARTTIINI, Isakki Järvenpää, KUSTAA Lammin) in a book about Finn knife "Puukot Jukka and Mikko Kemppinen, printing: Helsingissä Kustannusosakeyhtiö Otava" pictured and described. In this context. Historical knives by Lauri traded now relatively high-priced (including via EBAY). The right wood House was in "the sixties" of 19 Jhdrt., by Johannes Lauri, purchased as second-hand object (it was originally located in the vicinity of Vaasa), there dismantled and rebuilt to its current place as workshop building again. The left (the current CAFE) was built, however, much later by the new owner of this company. The large House has a history, because it was after the war, cpl in Rovaniemi the first. House built from brick. It was designed by an architect well-known in FIN. Now for the latest trends and business developments. In addition to articles still traditionally made from reindeer antler, wood, who vacuumed. Kello trees", knives, etc. are now also knitwear, table runners, etc. in their program. These are the current Café, it is issued as a salesroom and others acquired to purchase. Besides coffee, soft drinks yeast pastries (Pulla), etc are offered among others that can then be consumed in a time-honored setting.

  • This spring we travelled to the North of Scandinavia with my friends from England and Australia. One of the most nice experience we had in Rovaniemi, city of Santa Claus, it was very impressive! In Rovaniemi we stayed in Lauri Guest House which is stylish old wooden house, renovated and very comfortable inside. Peaceful area near by the very center of the city, home atmosphere, friendly and nice host and good coffee in the morning is what we really appreciated there. Just before we left, we were invited to visit nice souvenir shop that was next to the apartments. There was stylish Lappish scarfs, boots and mittens, wooden cups and pendants, we could even saw through the window how these lovely things were being made in workroom:) We really enjoyed our time in Lauri!
  • This lovely guesthouse and handicraft atelier/shop is in my opinion the most charming place in Rovaniemi city centre.
  • Visiting Lauri Store. Souvenirs store in Rollo that makes local hand-crafts, sami doudji and traditional crafts from reindeer bone and wood. The building is relocated old log cabit that dates its history back almost 200 years. Surrounding the modern city view this place is like a dream to visit. Owners are lovely and enjoy talk to people about the history of the building as well their hand-crafts. As a speciality they have fish skin wallets and reindeer skin boots to sale. Awesome visit for any tourist or local visiters!!!
  • Really fabulous workshop with locally made (right there!) reindeer antler, wooden and knitted handicrafts. Great souvenirs/gifts and if you're lucky you can see the working process
  • Cute little log with many kinds of traditional hand made treasures from Finnish aborigines.
