Textile Print and Workshop Rykkeri is run by four women who share the passion for printed textiles. Rykkeri is located within the historic 1850’s Weaving Mill Area.
Textile printing in Finlayson-Forssa factories ended in 2009. This also marked the year Rykkeri was established, ensuring the continuation of Forssa textile printing tradition. Now Rykkeri is the only company in Finland to print fabrics with a hand-operated 20 m printing table. Rykkeri prints its own collection and operates as a print shop for other designers and producers.
Forssa museum is a small community of versatile museum professionals working together to create memorable experiences. We come from different backgrounds in the field of textiles and textile work, art history, cultural history, pedagogy, and archaeology. Everyone has their own way of storytelling but we all feel passionate about local history, culture and textile industry.
