What on earth is a loue ?
A loue is an open-fire shelter that is completely open on one side. It provides protection from wind and rain, but allows you to light a fire in front of the loue, making the most of the heat from the fire. It is possible to install several Loue’s around the same campfire, place the Loue’s around the campfire facing each other.
The Finnrover Loue is the only truly Finnish open-fire shelter. The Loue is a wedge-shaped cloth which is sewn in a circle at the front and at the back, which is either tuned to a wooden pole or stretched over the top corner of the wood with string. The hemispherical back is fixed to the ground by pegs.
The shaped loue described has been used by forest walkers for more than 80 years. The FinnRover Loue is an exact copy of the original open fire lounge developed by A.E. Järvinen and manufactured by Kullervo Kemppinen.
Key Flag and Design from Finland
FinnRover Louves carry the Avainlippu- and Desing from Finland emblems, a symbol of Finnish work and Finnish design.
