Ms. Karvinen became famous for her sophisticated and subtle choice of colors, and for elevating poppana (Finnish cotton) into the stellar peaks of fashion. All poppana fabrics are hand woven, and Ms. Karvinen has adapted the same style to velvet, silk, and viscose for more formal and more expensive fashions. She designs jackets for both indoors and outdoors. In addition, her outlet offers tablecloths, bedspreads, and other household items for sale.
