A long, long time ago, a meteorite fell from the sky, struck in the middle of the Ostrobothnian plain and formed Lake Lappajärvi. It is the largest lake in the Ostrobothnian provinces and the largest crater lake in Europe caused by a meteorite. Now the shores of the crater lake are enjoyed by deep, cool waters by numerous cottages and fishermen. The water is good to enjoy because it is especially soft as a result of a meteorite attack
. Namely, it caused the formation of zeolite on the bottom of the lake, which further softens the water of the lake. If you ever go swimming in Lake Lappajärvi, you will notice this. The hair is wonderfully soft and the skin does not dry even after a long bath in Lake Lappajärvi.
The Karvala Village
The name of our company Karvala Oy is a tribute to a small rural village in Ostrobothnia, where the company's roots go back. The village of Karvala is on the shores of Lake Lappajärvi. The village got its name from a family of net weavers who once inhabited the area. Fishing nets were made from animal hair, such as horsehair. At present, the vivid town has appr. 3000 residents. Karvala is 12 km from the centre of the municipality. When you go to the store in Karvala, you still do not have to lock the doors, the neighbors are greeted on the main street, and you can visit people and have a cup of coffee at any time.
