Yoldia – at the origins of post-ice age nature

Most of Yoldia’s products are created in the Vanajavesi Valley, a part of Finland’s national landscape, in a wonderful setting full of natural diversity.

This landscape is culturally and historically important, a feast for the eyes, an epitome of Finland’s unique nature. The breathtakingly beautiful lake landscape, ancient cultivated fields, and lush ridges are a true joy to behold. Here, you can also spot the magnificent osprey flying high in the sky.

Welcome to follow Sibelius’ footsteps

Yoldia Scandinavia’s birthplace, is home to deep natural forests, so important to us in Finland.

This is where young Jean Sibelius hike with his violin, seeking inspiration for his compositions. Here is the Sibelius Forest, a unique nature reserve, which echoes in majestic notes in Finland’s national composer’s many world-famous works.

Our products are reminiscent of the relationship between humans and nature

We are part of nature and completely dependent on it. It is the source of our nutrition and the air we breathe. Still, an increasing number of modern people around the world have no experience of wild nature.

We want to bring people and nature closer together through our products. Encounters with wild nature are often memorable moments. Such positive nature experiences make it easier to understand why it is vital to protect the environment and biodiversity.

Natural materials

We use nature’s own high-quality materials sourced close to us.

When used correctly, products created from these materials by skilled hands can be eternal. The use of natural materials makes the products easily recyclable and ecological.

Soapstone – The pearl of Finnish soil

Beautiful, grey-green soapstone is a natural material with properties perfect for making dishes and other daily use articles. It is highly resistant to moisture and effectively conducts hot and cold.

Soapstone does not absorb liquids or flavours. It does not contain any harmful substances, and, as it is natural, it is easy to recycle back into nature.

Iron – an important element

The first iron objects were made of meteoric iron, which contained small amounts of nickel. Iron was a more durable and versatile material for tools and weapons than any previously used raw materials. It is known that during the Iron Age in Finland, a settlement was heavily concentrated in the Vanajavesi Valley, in the area of the ancient Yoldia Sea.

We use iron as the raw material in our Yoldia steel products. Steel is one of the strongest materials known to man. Its advantages include being incombustible and resistant to moisture.
