Little Market is part of Helsinki Design Weeks’ Children’s Weekend and is organized for the fourth time. The event gathers together interesting Finnish and international design brands to sell their new collections of children’s clothing designs and small interior items. This year the Little Market shows a lot of new brands and a launch of a new children’s design brand.
You will find the following brands at the Little Market:
Blaa! is a children’s wear company established in 2012. Blaa! designs sustainable children’s and women’s clothing aiming at a very long lifecycle for each garment. The clothes are trendy and easy to wear, and delicious colours, qualified details and hand-drawn patterns gives them spice. The goods are produced in Portugal in a Finnish-owned, audited factory and they have chosen the best available organic cotton for all our products. The cotton string is GOTS certified, and the factory has a very strict quality assurance process. All the wool clothing is produced in Finland from mulesing-free merino wool.
By Pinja is a Finnish family-owned company that manufactures silicone jewelry. The idea of our jewelry is to keep little hands busy while breastfeeding, carrying and cuddling so they won’t be scratching and pinching mommy.
Dadamora is a family-run business from Estonia, known for their high quality clothes for kids. The company was founded in 2013, when the founders’ son was born. They wanted to have clothes for children that are comfortable, simple and beautiful, so they started making them. Dadamora uses organic cotton and Ecotex fabrics only, and each piece of clothing is printed by hand. The products are timeless and enduring.
Kaiko Clothing is a new children’s wear company that wants to offer ethically made clothes for children. Kaiko Clothing was founded at the end of 2016, when the founder of the company, Mirjam Sokka, was wondering how she could combine fashion with charity.
Kaiko clothing donates 7% of the profit of all products sold to educate women and children in third world countries. That’s why our slogan is Fashion with a Mission!
