In the LAURI handicraft shop you can buy traditional gifts and handicrafts, true pieces of art made on the spot in our own workshop, which you can visit, too.
Back in 1924, goldsmith Johannes Lauri opened his small factory for handmade knives on, and today this is the oldest handicraft business in Rovaniemi and Finnish Lapland. Along with knives, the LAURI workshop manufactures traditional Lappish handicrafts.
The traditional LAURI products are handmade, unique and valuable gifts. We are following old traditions by creating our unique LAURI items. They all are handmade, made from renewable natural materials and unique. We care about our own Sámi ancestors. Most of the objects are typical Sámi art, we are working a lot with antlers, reindeer skin, fish skin, and Lapland’s wood.
We pay respect to old traditions and handmade art, and we want to be ecologically friendly: the basis of Lauri’s high-quality items are exclusively renewable natural materials. Such wonderful and valuable gifts will never lose their value even after many years. The combination of function and clarity design are making beautiful gifts and nice memories.
Kindly note: We also rent bikes. Bike rental 12 EUR per day.
