Sustainability

Carefully handmade and designed in Finland by Mai Niemi.

Everything we make is handmade in Finland. Responsibility and transparency is very important to us. That's why we have gathered here the most important things about our production.

Our "factory"/showroom is located in a small town near Helsinki called Kauniainen.​

 

Manufacturer

Manufacturer of clothes is Mai Niemi. She does all the clothes and accessories by hand. You can be sure that all the products are top quality as they are not made with machine but with hand and are being under watching eye all the time.

Zero Waste technique

All of the knitted ponchos and dresses are made by using zero waste technique. That means they are knitted straight to form and not cutted from fabrics. This technique ensures that all the material is used and no spare waste is produced.

Zero waste technique doesn't just save materials but also saves the world. 

 

Materials

Materials we use are carefully selected natural materials. We aim to use wool, cotton and linen as much as possible and try to avoid plastics and synthetic fibers. All of the knitted clothes and accessories are fully made from natural materials. Some of our jewelleries does include plastic as the ring on which the crochet is done, is plastic.

Our yarns are bought from different sources. Most of them are coming from Finland, England, Germany and Italy. Sometimes we use local yarn stores and handicraft stores to buy small amounts of yarns to create unique products or prototypes. 

Fabrics are bought from local stores and usually they are small pieces that give us few clothes - some of them unique. 

If you have anything you want to know about our production, feel free to contact us and we are glad to tell more.
