Its headquarters is located in Tallinn, Estonia (EU) and production units in both Peru and Estonia. They use the treasured alpaca fibre from the Peruvian highlands and design and interpret it in the Nordic way.


Silk production has an almost 2000-year history in Japan and is closely associated with one of the most easily recognisable symbols of the country’s culture and tradition: the kimono.

About Textiles

Japan’s domestic production of clothing materials such as leather, yarns and textiles has been in decline for several years, resulting in a downward trend in the volume of imports. China is the largest exporter to Japan for all apparel products.


The Japan’s leather market is dominated by China, which supplies many low-end products.
