Unique rock formations turned into jewelry and how to discover the best of Helsinki by bike
And more on the completely degradable jacket that stands any summer rain and the bracelet to wear around the clock.
Unique rock formations turned into jewelry
Stockholm-based jewellery label All Blues aim to create luxurious pieces that people want to collect, handcrafted by expert artisans at a third generation goldsmith farm outside Stockholm and with a list of retailers including Ssense, Beams, Nordstrom, Matches, Liberty, and Isetan. The new Rauk collection is named after the rock formations, sculpted by nature and uniquely found along the Swedish coasts of Gotland and Fårö islands. Centuries ago, Gotland was situated alongside the Equator, which is why the island’s nature is so unique. Today, it is found in the Baltic sea, towards the South-East of Sweden.
During his childhood, co-founder Jacob Skragge spent most of his summers at the Gotland shores where he became familiar with these stacked limestone structures. These impressive rauks arise through natural processes between the sea and the wind, which fascinated him at first sight and have therefore become a nostalgic symbol.
The Rauk collection features a necklace and a selection of rings, which are hand-carved to create a stone-like texture mimicking the rauks’ original state.
Bracelet to wear around the clock
Danish fine jeweler Ole Lynggaard celebrate living to the fullest of your abilities launching their new recilient bracelet line Life. Created by Charlotte Lynggaard to stay on your wrist around the clock on your adventurous living or just relaxing with that special one on your arm. Unisex and durable to wear whether contrasting your watch, worn in single splendour, or stacked with other understated statements. It features an 18K polished yellow or white gold hook and is dyed, woven, and hand-knotted by artisan craftsmen.
A degradable jacket that stands any summer rain
Swedish Tretorn continue their sustainability initiative Eco Essentials with a degradable, wind and waterproof rain jacket in a collaboration with outdoor concept Naturkompaniet. It's made of a polylactide fabric extracted by carbon dioxide the world's only degradable polyamide yarn – even with a degradable zipper – in an olive or navy color and an urban, minimalistic design.
– The customers of today are much more conscious and briefed, looking for sustainable products rather than a throwaway society. We're true guardians of the environment and extremely proud to launch the first degradable rain jacket, says Fredrik Ekström, Marketing and Communications Manager.
How to discover the best of Helsinki by bike
Downtown-Helsinki based Pelago Bicycles is now introducing the new Airisto Street bike, described as a very functional model simplified and optimised for daily use in the urban environment and ready to go beyond. When launching it, they've also put together a guide of their hometown that can be used if you're visiting the city for the first – as well as tenth – time. Included are the new Löyly sauna, the Suvilahti DIY concrete park, and the Kauppatori market, as the coastline of Helsinki works as a "Hop-on, Hop-off" route, which can be explored in short bits or all at once when you have a chance.
