Eevi Kytöniemi's Testimonial
"What attracted me to Mifuko's products was the simple Scandinavian design and the company's story." — Eevi
Eevi Kytöniemi, an interior and graphic designer with a passion for marketing, bought her first Mifuko baskets five years ago. She describes the baskets as super high quality and herself as a "Mifuko fan". We interviewed Eevi about her product experience, and she brought pictures of her Mifuko products at home with her family members.

How did you find Mifuko products and what attracted you to them?
I discovered Mifuko at the Maison&Objet fair in Paris, where I was working as a buyer for Cobello. What attracted me to Mifuko's products was the simple Scandinavian design and the company's story.
What products do you have and where do you use them?
I have several large (L) size storage baskets without handles, a large white basket with short handles and a green shopper basket with long handles. All the toy baskets in the nursery are Mifuko baskets. I like to store the children’s stuff that is in plain sight in beautiful Mifuko baskets instead of plastic baskets. The large white basket with handles also serves as a laundry basket and I use the shoulder bag for weekend trips.
Have you received any feedback on Mifuko products from family members and acquaintances?
Family members have liked the lightness of the baskets. For example, you can store a large number of children's legos in them. And they don't rattle or crack.
Do you have any recommendations or tips for other customers?
I recommend baskets of different sizes for home storage. I think the shoulder bag is unique - you don't come across the same one on every corner. I like the tight weave and roomy size of the bag. Since the bag has no inside pocket I store my smaller bag inside. The timeless design of the products means that you never get tired of them, and the high quality ensures that you don't have to replace the product quickly.
What is it about Mifuko that makes it so cool?
Quality, timeless design and corporate responsibility, and the transparency of the production chain.

Product tips from Eevi
Eevi uses L size baskets without handles and market baskets to store toys as they fit legos and soft toys very well. For laundry, she uses an L size market basket and her go to bag for weekend trips is the L size shopper basket. An M size basket without handles is Eevi's greenery protective pot and for storage in the living room she uses an L size basket without handles as well as a market basket with short handles.
