Saana ja Olli
Saana ja Olli is a designer couple and an award-winning design company from Turku, Finland.

We produce our own 100% hemp textile collection manufactured transparently and locally in Southwestern Finland.

Saana ja Olli has released several collections, done design work for various international clients and has been involved on various design projects in different continents.

In our works we value rectitude, timelessness and human touch.

We met each other in 2004, at a music festival in the woods of Oripää, Finland. Soon afterwards we started dating and ended up studying textile design together. We realised that the current market was lacking in sustainably produced interior textiles we liked, and proceeded to fill this void with our products.

Saana ja Olli as a company started in the autumn of 2008 as we retreated to a secluded cottage in Padasjoki, Southern Finland. During the week we spent in the forest by the lakes we drew our first print design. After receiving such positive feedback we decided to continue designing together. Since graduation in 2011 we have concentrated full time on Saana ja Olli.
