Rya

Modern and traditional rya hand-tufted  wall tapestries 

Hand-tufted rya wall tapestries and rugs are warm-hearted works of textile art. They carry on a long tradition to modern days. Renowned Finnish textile artists design our Taito Pirkanmaa  wall hangings. With a traditional Finnish rya, you will get a warm atmosphere at home. In a simple interior, a rya also makes for a great color accent and reduces noise. A modern or traditional rya is a timeless and prestigious piece of textile art, and great as a gift. 

Making a rya is addictively fun and easy. There are three ways to get a rya for yourself; sewing, weaving in looms from a craft kit or buying a finished piece. Taito Pirkanmaa craft kits' base fabric is woven by hand in looms in Finland. The pile yarn is our own 100% woollen Sirkka yarn, and the backing is woven using both wool and linen. 


DIY Rya rug by sewing

Sewing a rya rug using Sirkka 100% wool yarn on the finished base fabric is easy and fun. The end result resembles rya rugs woven in looms, as the Taito organization's genuine rya base fabric is hand-woven into a linen warp with wool weft. For something different, we offer paper yarn craft kits for wall decorations.
