Santa Claus uses magic dust to speed up his journey and after the job well done Santa has finally time to take a sauna and enjoy the good heat of original IKI which Santa Claus has chosen as his official sauna product.

Santa Claus appreciates Finnish craftsmanship, durability and good heat. That’s why IKI is Santa’s choice as his official product.
