About your host

We are Zoe and Merja, two craft enthusiasts brought together by weaving. Both of us had a different career before starting this journey but weaving and knitting have been our passion for the last 10 years. Finally after finishing our studies as Textile artisan and Clothing artisan respectively, we opened a weaving and knitting studio in Helsinki. Welcome to Kutomo Craft Studio!
