Saami Crafts

I like to make traditional style Saami crafts based on the heritage of my ancestors. Saami handicraft or duodji has a long tradition dating back a thousand years. The Saami make crafts that have both beauty and function.
I purchase all of my materials from Saami suppliers in Sweden and Finland.
Please visit my Etsy Shop or contact me for more information.

Bags and Cases
Bags, purses, pouches and cases are useful items and can be used for many purposes. These bags are made using traditional Sami materials: wool vadmal, reindeer leather or fish leather and decorated with colourful Sami bands or pewter tin embroidery.
Sami Reindeer Leather Coffee Bags
Coffee was important to the Sami. Everyone carried a special coffee bag on their belt and the first person to arrive at a new camp had the responsibility to make coffee for the others.
