Kauniste is a Helsinki based independent textile design company founded in 2008. Kauniste was created by uniting the talents of young Scandinavian designers and craftsmen. We want to combine fresh colors and design ideas with traditional manufacturing techniques. In autumn of 2009 we launched our first collection of screen printed kitchen towels at the Helsinki Design Market. The original idea behind the collection was to combine young illustrators’ art prints with an everyday useful item.
We work with talented & award winning illustrators and artists who paint, draw and paper cut wonderful patterns. We want both our patterns and products to last and keep bringing joy to your home past seasonal trends.
Starting out as a craftsman company, we put emphasis on high quality manufacturing and natural materials.
All Kauniste textiles are made in Europe from spinning of the yarns to printing and sewing of the final product. The fabric production follows the Oeko-tex standards to make sure the textiles contain no harmful chemicals to human skin and that the production follows ethical and ecological criteria.
