    Tikau is not only physical products.
    It is also about services, thinking and lifestyle. 

    We, a small group of Tikau people with our wide network, have gained thorough experience in the area of design, concept development, sustainability and development projects.  
    Consulting in Design, Concept development, Sustainability and Development projects.
    Tikau has been a pioneer by combining design thinking with aid and trade, since it all started almost ten years ago. Tikau has been consulting design and textile companies. Additionally Tikau has actively shared its knowledge with policy makers and the public sector in the hope that in the future it would be easier to combine trade and aid. 

    Our know-how and experience

    • Sustainability and product development and sourcing, ethical trade
    • Concept and product development  
    • Interior design / styling 
    • Consulting in concepts which combine trade and aid
    Tikau has also launched and introduced together with its sister NGO Tikau Share the concept of Design Helps. Under this philosophy, Tikau has curated exhibitions about the theme of "How design can help".
    Finland has been known for a long time as a welfare country and as a design country. Why not to combine these two and make some change with design that helps and increases wellbeing - globally and equally?
