Meet the Koigu Wool family: Maie, Taiu and Kersti Landra
Koigu Wool Designs has a history as bold and unique as the yarns and colors they produce. The name Koigu was chosen to honor the ancestral home of Maie's late husband, Harry, which is located in their native Estonia. The farm that now serves as the Koigu headquarters was purchased by Maie and Harry Landra in 1972. It was to be their weekend home located a few hours outside of Toronto, a much needed escape from hustle and bustle city life. Ten years later, Maie moved her family to the country permanently to follow her destiny as an artist and purveyor of fine wools.
