🛍Finland offers a wide range of products to buy, many of which are the expression of a flourishing local craftsmanship and Finnish design that is constantly inspired by nature.
You will then find a whole series of very nice wooden objects(knick-knacks, products for the kitchen, necklaces and the classic flowers) modern design ceramics, very elegant glass objects depicting the various aspects of Finnish nature,and the characteristic Finnish "ryijy" carpets that you will find in various shapes and sizes and in the most varied colors.
Typical products of Lapland that come from reindeer skin processing: bags, purses, and other objects in pure and soft reindeer skin.
You can also make very important gastronomic purchases: salmon (the smoked one is excellent) herring, caviar, reindeer meat, sweets (excellent those produced by Fazer) and what about the Finnish vodka that is among the best in the world.
In Helsinki the main shopping streets are: Mannerheimintie, Aleksanterinkatu, Frederikinkatu, Pohjoisesplanadi e Iso-Robertinkatu; in these streets you will find the best souvenir, design and craft shops as well as the best boutiques in the capital - among the most particular shops I mention Marimekko, Aarikka, Designor, Iittala.

In addition to shops, the capital offers you a wide choice of stores including Stockmann, Sokos, Forum, Kamp Galleria and Itakeskus, which is about 10 minutes by metro from the center of Helsinki.
Finnish design has experienced a moment of great popularity thanks to Alvar Aalto who used it to paint landscapes of memoryhis famous flower vase has opened new horizons in the production of shapes that recall the most cherished environments and places through a constant appeal of Finnish peasant culture. 🛍 #finland#lapland#visitfinland#marimekko#iittala#finnish#suomi#thisisfinland#shopping#finland_photolovers#helsinki#iittala#stockmann#igersfinland#travelblogger#finnishdesign@feelfinnair@visitlapland@helsinkiofficial@thisisfinland
