UTSJOKI HANDCRAFT products are handcrafted products in the North from genuine raw materials.
The material of the products is e.g. reindeer horn, birch, rotting board, reindeer leather and birchbark. Reindeer horn is an authentic and renewable natural material. The reindeer grows new horns every year. The deer drops its horns every year after the end of the mating season in the fall and the female in the spring after calving. The reindeer horn is the fastest growing bone in the world, during the busiest growing season in summer it grows up to 2 cm per day.
The most suitable part of the reindeer horn is selected for each product. The horn is washed, sawn and sanded before it becomes a finished product. All products are unique products shaped by nature.
Curly birch is the most valuable birch species in Finland. This type of birch wood is hard and difficult to process.
The products also combine different materials. Birch, reindeer horn and reindeer skin make a cheese planer or fruit knife a unique work of art.
Please wash these valuable products by hand.
