Strike a Pose

Vuoriortta enjoyed her peaceful morning coffee when suddenly there was a beeping sound of a truck backing up… Early bird neighbour was suprised to see Vuoriortta’s ecological packaging materials arriving with a big truck – not at all exaggerative 😀

Let’s make something über-cool out of these…;)


We were supposed to have “very official” fashion shoot this weekend! Oh lá lá.. However, we got invited to an extempore-2yrs-birthday party so the cake won this time. Luckily our friends and family got an inspiration out of their socks. There was some awesome material waiting in the email, Vuoriortta Lifestyle indeed!

Warning… The next victim might be YOU – Vuoriortta’s next top foot-model! You might wanna start practicing already 😉 If you do get an inspiration at some point, you can take a picture of your Vuoriortta-socks and send it to us: sales(at) We’re thankful of all kinds of pictures.

Made with love, Vuoriortta’s bamboo socks are waiting for a taste of life <3 We’re happy to hear more about their new “lifestyle”; maybe your socks have started a new cool hobby? Or been part of a special moment? Or simply enjoyed the unbearable lightness of living… – We can publish their news here in the blog 🙂

Soon the boutique site will be opening it’s curtain as well… It takes a little patience when everything is new and amazing to us as well 🙂

° 2013 °

It has begun! What did you find in your New Year’s tin? A trip, love, money or maybe an octonaut like our 3yrs old son got?

All the best for the year 2013! Make it perfect just like you want it to be 🙂 Vuoriortta wants to give a big thanks already at this point, from all your support and kind words. We take each single one of them in our hearts <3

Christmas brought warmness and happiness despite the fact that we were all a bit convalescent. The good side in having a stomach flu is, that nothing gives more sense of community than when you are literally in the same “boat”. However, the elfs had heard our little ones wishes and we did find the truck and a flashlight from the Christmas packages 🙂 And also other lovely things… “Mummu” had made this warm gift to our little princess for her very first Christmas:

Isn’t it lovely <3Orange-buttons and all – delicious!

The original instruction was from a Finnish handcraft magazine: Suuri Käsityölehti.


For my sister, Santa brought earrings from a Finnish designer called Poola Kataryna, rokrok! Recycled leather with some lacquer on top. I might have to borrow them (that’s what sisters are for…heheh). You might have run into Poola’s special wooden jewelleries; lions, bunnies, imposing lightnings… All you really need with a simple-looking outfit are pretentious earrings, et voilá – you’re really chic! Poola Kataryna’s products are also quite timeless +  locally & ethically manufactured. Vuoriortta likes that they also have a sense of humor, especially in the clothes you can feel that odd beautiness of us Finns 🙂


And what did we find from those soft VUORIORTTA-packages? Maybe we will take a little head start with these before next product groups. After all, you have to have something extra-fun for St.Valentines 😀

Short “Roxy” models – the smallest and the biggest size ;D


Normally I try to avoid stressing consumer parties like sales…hrrrr. However I did make one impact during our holidays near the “Paris of Tavastia”… A lovely déco-boutique Hushållska in the city of Forssa. Hushållska is situated in a charming, old wooden house in the heart of the city. This house was once functioning as a residence for the workers of the Finlayson textile factory. Besides decoration articles you can find clothes from a Danish brand called NoaNoa – as a mother of a little girl Vuoriortta simply could not resist…

The rosette is from mummy’s bonnet (:

“Oh, there’s a 10% angora…”Body is also from NoaNoa (Stockmann), soft organic cotton <3

Next week it’s time to get busy so that I would have news of the collection! The next product group is already underway, models are ready, working on materials and almost ordered the packing materials. We’re also working on the boutique-side of this site… A little pinch of visuality never harms, even if the style would be plain and simple. So little bit of this and little bit of that, small and big things on their way, yeey!

Have a beautiful weekend and a nice landing to a new year 🙂
