Our mosaic story
Our passion for mosaics began in the early 2000s when we first visited Barcelona, where we got to know Antoni Gaudi's mosaic work. After that, we did our first mosaic works in to our garden and indoors. Little by little, our garden and house were filled with mosaics.
Then we wanted to share the joy of making mosaics with others. This was the starting point for our company MosaiikkiMiljöö in 2007. In addition to selling materials, we want to provide our customers with new ideas and tips that you find in our online shop under Ideas and Tips category.
We were inspired by our trip to Ravenna and in the fall of 2007, we attended a Byzantine and Roman mosaic course in Rome. In summer 2009 and 2010, we held our own mosaic exhibitions at Wanha Muuntamo in Mikkeli and we were delighted to see mosaic enthusiasts all over Finland. As the demand for mosaic products increased in 2010, we launched our online shop. mosaiikkimyymala.com
In the spring of 2017, we opened a warehouse shop in Mikkeli, where customers can experience the wonderful world of mosaics. In 2019, we opened our online shop also in English and Swedish to serve foreign customers better.
Welcome to the world of mosaics!

What is mosaic?
Mosaic is estimated to be about 6,000 years old decorative and art form. Mosaic is a pattern or a work of art, which consists of small pieces. The pieces can be made of ceramic, glass, marble, gems, etc. The mosaics are attached to some base with glue or mortar.
You can create mosaic to almost any non-bendable base such as wall, metal table, Styrofoam ball etc.
Please note that wooden bases live / warp under the influence of moisture, so we advise to place them indoors or to a sheltered place outdoors.
