I was recently invited to a blog event at Tikau, where I got to meet other Swedish speaking bloggers. It was nice to talk to other bloggers about blogging, I haven’t done that before. The evening was also a great opportunity for me to practice my mingling skills and learn about the company. The Tikau store sells ethically manufactured products from different brands like Hyvä Teko and Mifuko as well as Tikau’s own products. The brands have been carefully selected, the design is just as important as the sustainability. The Tikau products are manufactured by artisans in rural India using sustainable and locally sourced materials. I really admire Taina Snellman, the founder of Tikau for her drive and patience. With production being done by families instead of a single factory, the logistics can be quit challenging. But she believes that employment is the best way to help and I couldn’t agree more!
So if you’re looking for items for your home or a gift for someone, go check out the store!
Below is a chronicle of the evening in pictures. Thanks again to Nora for inviting me!
An example of the impressive craftsmanship. This felted piece is embroidered by hand.
Some of the cute crocheted toys at the store.
One of my favourite bloggers, Karin Lindroos gave us some tips on how to make our wardrobes more sustainable and the importance of finding your own style. I love the colour of her jacket!
Time to mingle!
