Raptoor crafting is based in Finland - Korvatunturi is best known as the home of Father Christmas (or Joulupukki in Finnish). According to Finnish Folklore, this land is the location of Father Christmas’ secret workshop, where toys, trinkets and gifts are made and eventually wrapped by elves. Known for their good-natured demeanour and their role as guardians of homes, these gnomes are also responsible for analysing weather patterns for the yearly gift-giving trip around the world. People have also said that the ear-shaped structure of the fell allows Father Christmas to hear the wishes of every child on Earth. In popular media, this legend has been adapted into the film Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.

The words tomte and tonttu are derived from the term for a place of residence and area of influence: the house lot, tomt (Swedish) or tontti (Finnish). According to tradition, the nisse lives in the houses and barns of the farmstead, and secretly act as their guardian.

A tonttu is a miniature mythical humanoid creature believed to live in the forests and in or near people’s dwellings, similar to an elf or gnome. An elf (Santa’s helper).
