Christmas story

A long time ago, a group of particularly charismatic and skillful Christmas elves arrived in the port of Rauma after sailing the seas as stowaways. These elves came from a family known for their lace making skills. They will always seize the opportunity to decorate and dress up, both in everyday life and for festivities. The elves love everything that is beautiful, atmospheric and delicious. Beauty is in the details and in the craft itself, they say. That’s why they came to Rauma.
