Behind RunoDesign brand is Savonlinna based designer Mervi Pesonen. The collection includes bags, accessories and home decor. RunoDesign products are designed and handmade in small series in the studio-shop located in a charming 19th century house at Linnankatu, next to the Olavinlinna Castle.

I use natural materials: linen, wool, cotton and leather. Soft colors and simple forms in textiles and bags reflect the peace and freshness of the surrounding nature of lake Saimaa.

Ecological values are observed – in production I use zero waste -method and exploit industrial leftover materials. Craftsmanship is also important – RunoDesign items are made to a high standard and the handmade end result is impeccable.
