5 reasons why choose the Ruskovilla baby fleece overall

Ruskovilla introduced this baby overall made of merino wool fleece in 2018. Initially we were not sure if it would become popular, but in fact it has become one of our most popular items that has gathered a loyal following among our customers!

Why? This overall is just the perfect warmer for outdoor walks, as well as for taking naps outside. It is excellent to be used on its own for most of the Swiss Fall and Winter months.

Spring greetings from Ruskovilla

We hope you and your close ones are staying healthy in these difficult times. We at Ruskovilla have cancelled all our Spring events and remain in isolation like so many others. Hopefully the situation will improve soon and we can all look forward to the summer.

As long as we are allowed and if you have the opportunity to do it safely, we warmly recommend going for a nature excursion. There are so many lovely quiet hiking trails and forests where you can breathe the fresh air and hopefully find some peace of mind.

We have been taking the kids into the forest a few times, making a fire and having a picnic lunch. The kids love it and everyone feels better. And if you choose the location carefully, there’s hardly anyone to be seen.

On these hikes we usually wear our classic merino outdoor shirt, currently on offer! This shirt has always been one of our personal favorites and we warmly recommend it for your outdoor excursions. You will love this shirt and use it over and over again! And for further inspiration, check out our Spring seasonal collection.

Stay safe and strong!!

Two years anniversary of Ruskovilla Switzerland!

Two years!!!

It’s now been two years since we started with Ruskovilla Switzerland, taking over the business from the talented and wonderful Annika S. who had built it from scratch here in Switzerland.

We were wondering whether we should take the plunge. And then we decided it’s an opportunity that we cannot miss. And we really love our products!

So many great moments fit in these two years: Meeting with our wonderful customers in many lovely events (the best is seeing a happy customer with our product). Getting to know the strong community of likeminded entrepreneurs and crafters that support each other – other Finns in Switzerland, other Rocking Women in Switzerland, other small businesses, talented handicrafters and designers. Being happy about being able to bring a little piece of Finland to Switzerland. Launching our new webshop. Building new skills. And so forth.

We are endlessly thankful also to our families who have always been very supportive and who have come countless times to help with events and taking care of the kids.

There have been several difficult moments on the way (from IT issues to moments where we starting to lose our faith)… But today we are proud and very happy of where we have gotten so far.

Thank you so much for all your support!! Stay tuned – the story of Ruskovilla Switzerland continues!!


She’s here! (well almost)

Our family is growing! We are getting ready to welcome our second baby, and time seems to just fly by… Our first baby arrived 10 days past due date, and the last weeks seemed to be an endless wait to finally have him in our arms. There was no way the days could go by fast enough. This time, it feels like time is rushing by. It’s a big reassurance that, this time, we know (a bit better) what to prepare for!
