Zero waste design

At Valona, we make feather-light wooden jewellery, birch Himmeli mobiles and seasonal decorations such as Christmas tree toppers. In addition to aesthetics, we value ecology. Birch, therefore, is the right choice of material for us. Valona was founded in 2006 by its designer Elina Mäntylä.
We have been a limited liability company since 2018 when Markus Vihottula joined the company and turned from a mentor to an owner. Our office is located in Marjaniemi, Helsinki, but the design work travels with us in the archipelagos and the mountains of Lapland. We employ 2-5 employees, depending on the season, directly or through subcontractors across Finland.
Our products are available in approximately 50 design and gift shops around the world. We strive for international growth because we believe in our products and want the ideology of ecological and responsible design to be accessible to anyone interested in Nordic design.
Ecological and ethical
For us at Valona, sustainable values are at the heart of our design and operations. Products are designed based on the principles of zero waste. Only sustainably produced and certified Finnish birch wood is used as the main material for production.
Every year, Valona participates in several trade fairs, pop-ups and various design events in Finland and abroad. We update this page with information about our participation in interesting and exciting events.
