Design for development
TIKAU - Design Helps!
Founded in 2008, Tikau is a Finnish company combining
design with the vision of employing and empowering artisans, mostly in India and Finland.
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. The aim is not only to make beautiful items, but also pursues a
genuine intention to make the world a better place.
Tikau’s product range is a socially and environmentally conscious collection of
exclusive hand made items. Our vision of luxury is
clean home and clean world, organic materials, zero plastic and pure,
chemical-free products. Our products also have identifiable origins.
