Finland Dolls Rovaniemi Sami People

Pair of dolls made in Finland by Ateljee Eveko. They are wearing the traditional costume of the Sami people living in the Sápmi region (Lapland). This region stretches over 4 countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland & Russia. This Finnish pair most likely is from Rovaniemi.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
