PINKKIS Principles and Practices
Earth- and Vegan-Friendly
All my products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. As well, I line all my pouches with upcycled fabric. A good deal of my outer fabrics are upcycled. I try to purchase bamboo fleece whenever possible, along with upcycled or eco-friendly outer fleece. All scrap material from my workshop is recycled as well.
Packaging is a Priority
It’s not enough for me to simply produce useful, unique, handmade items—I also make each package special so that they delight my customers up on arrival. Who doesn’t love a fun, interesting, and different package? Based on the feedback I get, apparently just about everyone does!
I support numerous charities and animal advocacy groups in Finland and beyond, from local group Animalia to bile bear rescues to Animals Asia and beyond.
