Welcome to manos!

manos is a shop with selected design and craft products located on Renstiernas gata 22 in the SOFO area of Stockholm, Sweden. manos is the creation of ceramic designer Karin Eriksson and it is my eclectic taste that is behind what you will find here. I like objects made in natural materials, produced in fair ways to both environment and people.

I hold ceramic courses in the workshop located behind the shop and one of the basement rooms is let out to workshops and events. The combination of shop and workshop makes manos a one-of-a-kind and creative meeting place.

To visit manos online or in the shop at Renstiernas gata should feel like discovering something very special. It should be inspiring and good for the soul. I hope you feel welcome here as often as you like - my wish is that you discover something special every time!

A screen printed t-shirt in eco cotton by Lisa and Esa Tanttu / Jollygoodfellow. The Jackson Pollock t-shirt is forgiving, even encouraging, to stains. In their own words: "Ten years ago, when we had our first kid, we started to think about a ”spill-friendly” t-shirt. We tried different patterns to camouflage the spill. But now we finally have the concept! What before was a problem is now a piece of art in the spirit of Jackson Pollock."

A screen printed t-shirt in eco cotton by Lisa and Esa Tanttu / Jollygoodfellow. The "Kotten" print is a product that I've stocked since I opened manos in 2008 and it is still as strong.

Just like I strive to do with manos, Jollygoodfellow works sustainably: "Our goal is to save the planet and, therefore, we insist on using organic cotton, second hand garments and other fair materials. In our work with the prints, we have a desire for the timeless and mix old and new."

The "Kotten" t-shirt is printed by hand with water-based colour in Jollygoodfellow's garage printshop using really nice t-shirts from Neutral (Denmark) that are certified – GOTS, FAIRTRADE, EU ECOLABEL etc.

This print is also available as a poster.

Events & Courses

Karin Eriksson, ceramic designer/maker and owner of manos holds inspiring and creative classes in her workshop, situated in connection to the shop. The classes are aimed at beginners as well as those with some experience of working with clay. We work together with projects or themes to learn the basic ceramic techniques - slab rolling, coiling, pinching and throwing. You are also very welcome to work on your own ideas and projects under Karins guidance.

The groups are small (max 5 people) and you will receive lots of individual attention and work from the basis of your own qualifications and interests. For application and more information: or by phone (+46 8 655 1160) or come in to the shop!
