TUOHI is Finnish, meaning the bark of a birch. A lot of the traditional knowhow in managing the birch bark has remained to our day, starting from the loosening the bark from the tree trunks within a very limited time frame around the Finnish Midsummer as well as organizing the collection and storage of the bark for the need of the following year. The raw material we use is recycled and ecological because normally in wood processing industry the birch bark would be wasted. Showroom Finland combines modern technology and innovative design in its TUOHI collection.
