Finlayson Releases Line Of Tom Of Finland Home Goods

A Finnish textile manufacturer is here to make your dreams come true by finally getting Tom of Finland into your bedroom.

Well... kind of.

Fans of the iconic gay illustrator and his hunks can now order a line of home goods that feature your favorite queer sex symbols. Finlayson, the textile manufacturer, is teaming up with the Tom of Finland foundation in order to pay homage to these beautiful men and the artist that created them, Touko Laaksonen. This collection includes satin sheets in king, queen and twin sizes, duvet covers, hand and bath towels and a textile tote bag and there are plans to expand the line in 2015.

“I am confident that Touko Laaksonen would be proud of the respect that he as an artist has gained during recent years thanks to the Tom of Finland Foundation and Finnish trendsetter companies such as Itella Posti Oy, the Finnish national post office, and now Finlayson," Berndt Arell, co-writer and researcher of the book Tom of Finland -- Unforeseen and Director General of National Museum of Sweden said in a statement. "Becoming a world-known artist has required determination and courageous work in a world that was not that respectful and permissive at the time."


Tom of Finland and Laaksonen's work was previously honored through a series of stamps released earlier this year depicting the queer icon.
