Our story dates back to 1997, when Susanna and Mikko Myllymäki combined their common passion for handicraft and design. Our founder Susanna has printed her own designs with an entrepreneurial spirit ever since childhood, which she decided to challenge her dislike for cleaning with. Our founder Mikko has been engrossed with machinery his whole life, and is fundamentally very precise and technologically-oriented. These two stories combined to become the foundation for spreading MORE JOY to the everyday life of all our customers.

We work in co-operation with Plan International, donating a part of our sales from every dishcloth to advancing children’s education in developing countries and progressing girl’s equality.
CEO & Designer
Having had passion for design and an entrepreneurial spirit since childhood, Susanna started printing her own designs in her grandmother’s basement already when in elementary school. Later on she would study arts and design, and use her knowledge to create products that gave her newfound joy in her everyday chores. She wanted to have a product that would be both beautiful to entice her to clean, but also ecological and durable so as to not damage the beautiful nature around us. Thus she began producing MORE JOY’s dishcloths and kitchen towels from organic materials, and to spread her passion around the world.
Born in the Finnish countryside to a family of woodworkers, Mikko has always had a skill for creating artisan handicrafts. However, he has also had a drive to see more of the world and broaden his skill set, so he has continually studied and improved himself in machinery, production technology and printing methods, both abroad and domestically. Due to his hard work and ingenuity, MORE JOY has been able to produce its products with such high capacity and serve all our customers globally without any delay.
