Tikau is a Finnish company combining design with the vision of employing and empowering artisans. “Tikau" means long-lasting and durable in Hindi. We know who made our products and where are they made in. The production is mainly based in India and Finland. Some of the products are also manufactured in other parts of the world always according to the principle of sustainable development.
Our products are not factory-made but manufactured by individual artisans and small-scale producers in their homes or in small communities. Taking a uniquely long-term, personal and humane approach, Tikau collaborates directly with its artisans, combining contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship. We use local, organic materials for each product and minimize the use of chemicals and water.
Today the production is based in India and in Finland respecting local craftsmanship. Read more about production and materials.
