Nuppu Print Company

The Nuppu Story

Nuppu Print Company creates, designs and produces printed collections on fabric and paper. The collections’ unique and specific features are created with flowers, dreams and tiny details, spiced with a hint of Scandinavian touch. We believe that the most beautiful floral patterns are not born out of the tropics but rather out of all the ingredients among which we, up here in the North, live. One just needs to have an eye for those ingredients. Heathers with a backdrop of an autumn gray sky, or white viburnums wildly dancing in the wind – can there be any moments more beautiful or happier than that?

Nuppu is actually one big happy moment. Nuppu came true when Jenni and Satu opened their mouths at the same moment and realized they had been having the same dream. In March 2016 at a launch party of a book with Satu’s graphic design, Jenni asked Satu why wouldn’t she make fabrics with her illustrations. Satu, on the other hand, told that she had always dreamed of a stationary collection of her own. At that moment, the dream started to become reality.

Now we have already had quite a journey making the dream come true and Nuppu is blooming vividly. The fabrics are popular both in Finland and abroad. Paper products have several retailers and through collaborative projects, Nuppu patterns can be found also on Havi’s napkins and clothes by Lumoan.

All Nuppu’s products are made in the EU and produced ecologically and ethically. Nuppu is our own registered trademark. Nuppu is a Finnish word for a bud.
