On this page you can find introduction about companies that are coopearing with BorderPride 2018. 

Tornedal & Co.

Tornedal & co. is our very own official Pride cafe & shop! You can find there cakes and coffee, beautiful art and handmade decorations, housewear and clothes all made in Tornedal!

The boutique and art café "Tornedal & Co" in Haparanda proudly presents local culture to local folk and visitors.

"What's cool about art, craft and design is that it has the power to preserve traditions, and yet challenge prejudice and backwards thinking at the same time! Society evolves through culture.
BorderPride strengthens and highlights the open, welcoming Torne Valley where everyone can feel at home. That's why we want to be a part of BorderPride. To be part of the solution."
