The soul of Northern Heart
Northern Heart was created due to my intense love for the Swedish and Northern nature and culture. The silent forest, the crisp air, the midnight sun and the Northern lights. Everything I create is nature and north bound and I create with the hope of giving a little piece of that magic, a little piece of Sweden to each and every one of you.
All items from the Northern heart shop are handcrafted, Swedish and made with respect, love and care for our nature. The most popular product is the classic Swedish “Kåsa” also called Kosa, Kausa or Kuksa and itss a traditional wooden cup used by the indigenous people in Sweden; the Sami people.
The wooden cups are hand made with ancient traditions, using carefully selected “björkvril” - a rare birch burl, which makes the wooden cups strong and durable as well as giving them their beautiful and individual look. This is sustainability at it’s best! The cups get their beautiful patina from the ice cold northern climate with long winters and cool summers, the golden light of the midnight sun and the dancing Northern Lights - 'Aurora borealis’. A hand crafted Kåsa is as far away from mass production as one can get, this is a treasured item that, with the proper care, can last a lifetime!
