Woodnotes is a Finnish design company founded in 1987 by textile designer Ritva Puotila and her son Mikko Puotila. The company is still owned by its founders.

The original concept behind Woodnotes products was to combine artistic creativity inspired by Finland?s rugged nature with advanced technologies to shape of Finnish raw materials: wood and paper. Woodnotes is the first company in the world to use paper yarn in a contemporary way in functional textiles. Ritva Puotila wanted to use paper yarn because of its properties ? to make the most of its unique characteristics, not as a substitute for other materials.

The Woodnotes collection, which has expanded over the years from carpets made from paper yarn to a comprehensive concept, is augmented every year with new, relevant, and innovative products. Woodnotes still, however, holds to its original concept of producing products from paper yarn ? cotton based on paper yarn was, for instance, the basis for the design of the recently internationally recognised My and Roo loungers.

Woodnotes products are recognised around the globe for their elegant design and superior quality. The company currently exports 70% of its production to over 30 countries. Woodnotes products are sold at higher-end interior design and design retailers.

Woodnotes products have won numerous international awards.
