The Northern territories and coasts have been a destination for seekers of physical and spiritual riches throughout centuries. Fertile lands and coastlines covered in amber were found in the North with unprecedentedly long summer days surrounded by pristine nature.
There are several theories regarding the location of Ultima Thule. The former President of Estonia, Lennart Meri, also a diplomat and a politician, a translator, a movie director and a legendary and a beloved writer’s, theories, dedication and work towards revealing the secrets surrounding Ultima Thule, have stood to the test of time the most. According to his extensive research, the mythical Thule described in ancient times is the largest island of Estonia, Saaremaa.

The creation of Northern Luxuries was inspired by the myth and the legend of Ultima Thule by sharing similar values amongst artisans, designers, craftsman and lifestyle brands.
