Who is behind the shop and where the idea came from? 
First there was a little toy teddybear named Nallukka. It was a gift to a babygirl Siiri. Even today Nallukka is an important part of Siiri´s family.
After a while I, Anne, Nallukka´s "godmother", started writing up Nallukka´s adventures and books were published.

And in a while, other products were born as well. The most popular of all are the kids handmade leather mittens.
