A lot of people ask about the word Hetkinen. Hetkinen is a Finnish word and means wait a minute in English. When the Finns are thinking something, they usually say Hetkinen. Today, as we live a hectic life, it is important to have a Hetkinen moment for yourself. Stop for a while and calm down. Life is short and every moment is precious. Hetkinen® offers natural products and interior design items made with unique ingredients sourced from different trees. The products are minimalist, innovative, and simple. Living in harmony with nature is one of the greatest commitments we can make in our lives. Hetkinen’s philosophy is to bring the people who use these products closer to nature in their busy everyday lives. All the products are made of 100 per cent natural ingredients and the entire product line is vegan. Whilst the packaging itself is a part of the product: antibacterial pine, made from the tree’s fragrant heartwood.

Many of Hetkinen's wood products were designed by fellow Finnish artisan Antrei Hartikainen, who was recently profiled in the New York Times. Read the article here.
