Jenni Tuominen has a background in graphic arts, and she is interested in combining different materials and using different techniques to print on paper. This interest was also the starting point for the Tuubiraita (tube stripe) design. Having found a piece of mosquito net in the attic of her summer house, Jenni spread some ink on the netting and pressed it onto sheets of paper. The result was an intriguing net-like pattern which inspired the designer to experiment further with rubber and mesh mats. The surface so created was combined with stripes – and the Tuubiraita print was born.
