DLA pocket squares are finished with hand rolled edges, which give them a refined, three-dimensional appearance that machine sewing simply cannot achieve. They are inspired by the golden era of Finnish art and literature, in particular the Finnish National Epic Kalevala, which was a key inspiration for JRR Tolkien.
Each features art from iconic Finnish artitsts, including Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who created the visual world for the Kalevala Epic. His symbolic art was a combination of his own life, folklore myths and Christian mythology. This world of symbolism lies somewhere between dreams and reality.
