Not for disposable culture
Tina´s Design House is a traditional leather workshop in Jakomäki, Helsinki.
The company's founder Tiina Pyykkö is both an upholsterer and a master of leather work. With his work, he wants to resist the disposable culture and create sustainable, practical products. She has been doing leather work under Tina´s Design House since 2016.
Coming from Finland
The products are made of Finnish, ethically and ecologically produced, vegetable tanned cowhide. Leather is a by-product of domestic dairy and meat farms.
The leather is handled by Pelo's leather tannery from Central Ostrobothnia. Pelo is Finland's oldest operating leather factory and family business.
The leather is cut, dyed and sewn by hand, respecting the tradition of handicrafts.
To ensure durability, the products use thick leather, which is initially stiff, but softens and modifies in use.
The Finnish Labor Association has awarded Tina's Design House leather products with the Key Flag and the Design from Finland label.
