The basis of all our work is our love and passion for textile printing. Cultural sustainability is important to us,
and we do our best to preserve the local cultural history,enliven it and share awareness about it. This is the force which pushes us forward.
We started in the year 2009. At first, we printed fabric mostly for customers’ needs and, on the side,
we executed some small-scale projects of our own. Our enterprise has grown over the years and slowly
changed because in when in Häme, you can’t act rashly.
Rykkeri is our brand, but it is also what we call our premises. The word ‘Rykkeri’ originates from the Swedish term trycka tyg
which translates to printing fabric. The person printing fabric or operating the printing machine was called ‘rykkäri’ and printing ‘rykkääminen’.
These are the matters which have formed our beloved word Rykkeri.
Our own Rykkeri Collection has been alive since 2013. The first product was called ‘Vituke’ or ‘Pillunpäre’ which was a seat cover for sauna
made of wooden splinters in the times way past. Those were made especially for women. Alongside ‘Vituke’ came two similar productscalled ‘Jormake’ and ‘Pyllyke’. This collection inspired by the Finnish folklore had two additions later own and those were ‘Paskatikut’ (poop sticks) and ‘Vanhan ämmän perseenpyyhin’ (the old hag’s ass wiper).

The first tunic dress of our clothing collection we have made back in 2014 and we make them still. From the beginning of our journey,
it has been crucial for us to design timeless and future-proof clothes. We don’t have seasonal collections or season sales.
The collection is replenished with a few new models in the summer and the winter. We produce clothes in small quantities and in singular pieces.

We work with joy, gratitude, and enthusiasm to create something new.
