TIKAU – The Company
Tikau is a Finnish company, which combines Scandinavian design with the vision of employing and empowering the artisans of rural India. Tikau has been a pioneer in Finland by combining "trade and aid" as well as introducing and promoting something known as Design Helps thinking.
The word Tikau comes from Hindi and stands for sustainable and durable.
Taking a uniquely long-term, personal and humane approach, Tikau collaborates directly with its 120 artisans in their home villages in India, combining Scandinavian design and traditional craftsmanship.
The aim is not only to make beautiful items, but also to make the world a bit of a better place.
Tikau works in close collaboration with the charity based NGO Tikau Share.
