Linda & Mosha Lundström
Mother & Daughter, Founders of Therma Kōta
“What I love about fur products is that they’re infinitely recyclable they compost back into the earth; there’s something really holistic and beautiful about that.”
Mosha: My family comes from Scandinavia, from Iceland and Sweden where fur is such a necessity and really a reflection of their lifestyle of living off the land. There was appreciation for fur in my life from a very young age.
Linda: My Canadian roots exposed me to the wonderful work of the indigenous people. As a kid I wore fur trimmed mukluks, they were like my prized possession, they kept my feet warm.
Mosha: I love having conversations with people and educating them because it’s something that you are going to keep for a very long time. You want to know where it’s from, how it was made.
Linda: One of the most satisfying things about working with fur is the gratitude that’s been shown by the indigenous people in the remote parts of this country and this is a connection to the land. It’s a way for them to carry on traditional practices.
