3rd Prize

Ruskovilla womenandmen smallRuskovilla is a pioneer in the Finnish organic textile industry. The company was founded in 1981 and is today a second-generation family company. Ruskovilla garments are made entirely in Finland, from design, weaving, cutting and sewing right the way through to the finishing touches. That’s why our products bear the key flag symbol. Our products arose from people’s need to dress in breathable and chemically untreated undergarments in a world that is becoming increasingly chemicalised. Our range is designed to be traditional yet modern. Our materials - organic merino wool, silk, silk wool and organic cotton - have been used as fibres for thousands of years, and the environment also benefits when renewable natural materials that return to the natural cycle are used in manufacturing.
