Wood: Pine & Smoked Oak Origin: Finland Ribbon color: White and black hand made lace by lace artist Tarmo Thorström. Tarmo has also designed the pattern of the lace traditional to Rauma Finland.

The design of the neckwear is a tribute to the City of Rauma from its history as a boat building and as a harbor by the sea.


Raum Ruset is a tribute to Hermanni Vuorisalos home town Rauma.

The collaboration between HERMANDIA and Tarmo Thorström was officially published on 23.06.2018 on Thursday at 2 pm in Marela’s yard with Nortamo seor.

Ruset’s inspiration has been Rauma’s traditional boat manufacturing. This is reflected in the design and material choice of the wood – the frame material is domestic pine.

It has been a custom in wooden boats to decorate the sides and other wooden parts with noble hardwood, which has been taken into account in Raum Ruset, respecting traditions, by bordering the bowtie with smoked oak, creating a contrast to the appearance of neckwear.

In the middle of the bowtie is a recycled white silk fabric decorated with black lace handmade by Tarmo Thorström, inspired by Rauma Lace.


This SÖÖR Neckwear is designed and handmade in Turku, Finland by Hermanni Vuorisalo.

Delivery time 14 – 20 workdays. Return time 14 days.


All Hermandia products are carefully handmade with a detail-oriented working method. Careful craftsmanship guarantees the uniqueness and the high quality of the product. Hermandia Collection represents a creative and modern approach to Finnish design while respecting traditions.

Our material choices are guided not only by quality but also by ecological and ethical values. We use six different types of wood originated from responsibly managed FSC-marked forests around the world. The wood is veneered in Hollola, Finland. The glue used in products is organic, and we use our own surface treatment to finish the look with nature’s own protective substances so no solvents or chemicals are needed.

The textiles used in the accessories are high-quality surplus materials, hand-picked by Hermanni Vuorisalo from the collections of tailors. The adjustable neck strap is made from cotton woven in Finland.

The neckwear comes in a handmade wooden case designed by Hermanni Vuorisalo.

Each SÖÖR Neckwear is numbered, and they come with a certificate of authenticity. Each SÖÖR Neckwear has its own matching pair of DAAM Earrings that are carved from the same wood.

By buying a wooden SÖÖR Neckwear you take part in protecting Finnish nature. For each product sold, we protect the Finnish nature in a 4 m2 area in cooperation with the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation. The protected area: Lapland, Ullatieva N7590070.000 E367911.000.

And why do we use the word neckwear instead of wooden bowtie? That’s because we respect traditions. Bowtie is a strip of cloth that is tied. Our wooden neckwear are formal one-of-a-kind accessories.
