The knitted mitten combines traditional patterns from the Enontekiö and Alahärmä regions in Finland and Viljandi in Estonia. The knitted crafts reflect cultural, ethnic, and regional identities with their patterns from all around the world. Moreover, the mitten artwork highlights the cultural right to express identities in between cultures (such as Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures) as well as cultural influences in handicrafts as one very rich way of learning.
