Metsä Kolossa opitaan luonnosta

Yrityksen arvoina ja perusajatuksena ovat luonnonläheisyys ja halu oppia luonnosta. 

We favour high-quality, domestic alternatives for our materials. We have invested in ecological natural materials for our linen, bedding and bedding. In the sauna, we offer you the use of Metsä Kolo organic soap. All the cleaning and detergent products we use are naturally environmentally friendly.

At the dining table we prefer natural ingredients, locally produced and organic food. Our fresh drinking water is genuine groundwater, which we get from our well in the yard. We are proud of our clean natural water.

Our responsibly managed woodland offsets the emissions from our guests' travel. We are happy to tell you more about how we manage our forest. The electricity we use is eco-electricity. We recycle waste (paper, cardboard, glass, metal and plastic) and compost organic waste. The stoves and sauna are heated with wood from our own forest. In everything we do, we ensure that our environment remains clean for future generations and that the picturesque Saariharju is a pleasant place to live and visit now and in the future.

We prefer high-quality and ecological domestic alternatives in our materials

Finnish design beds

We want to pamper our guests with luxurious nighttime sleep, so we have chosen Hilja beds by the Finnish family business MATRI. The beds have been handmade in their own factory using 100% natural materials. MATRI also has material safety at heart, which is why all of their products use only environmentally friendly, certified materials produced in Europe. This ensures an exceptionally clean, breathable and safe sleeping environment.

Horsehair futons

We want to pamper our guests with soothing sleep. The futon mattress gives the body proper support so that the muscles do not have to tense while sleeping. The perfectly breathable mattress is made only of pure natural materials. With horsehair, a very durable and airy layer can be created in the futon, which brings a little surface softness together with the layers of organic cotton and wool. The futons are handmade in Pori by the same family business where the ecological blankets and pillows we have chosen also come from.

Duvets and pillows

We want to pamper our guests with natural Finnish products. Duvets and pillows of Finnsheep wool are an ecological choice, as they biodegrade in soil. Wool is inherently fireproof so it does not require the addition of fire protection chemicals and is also otherwise a chemical-free product. The bedding does not make you sweat even in hot weather as it efficiently evaporates the moisture it absorbs and stays comfortably warm in the cold and damp. Our impressive bedding is handmade in Finland by the company called Porin Villa ja Peite, using surplus raw materials produced nearby.

Duvet covers and pillowcases

We want to pamper our guests with soft linen sheets. Jesus linen sheets are made to last, experience and see a lot, even for generations. The material of linen is beautiful, durable and environmentally friendly natural fiber. Linen is heavy, smooth and stiffer. Breathable linen retains its coolness when hot and warms even in cooler places.
The comfort and softness of the fabric only increase with washing. Finlayson wanted to make the most durable sheets in the world, for which they took the model of the Turin shroud that has survived to this day.


We want to pamper our guests with the best towels. The weaving at Lapuan Kankurit, the manufacturer of our towels, is of Nordic design, inspired by Finland's pure and rugged nature. The fourth generation family business weaves responsibly, while respecting the environment. Only natural raw materials such as linen and wool are used. High-quality textiles last for decades when properly cared for.
