The story of PaaPii
PaaPii is a Finnish design company, that sprung to life in 2011. Anniina Isokangas was filled with eagerness, inspiration and courage, as she turned her beloved hobby into a – then – small business. At first PaaPii produced small amounts of stuffed animals and interior products – and also fabrics, printed by hand. As the years passed, PaaPii moved to industrial production and brought clothing lines for babies, children and women for sale. Since 2017 all of the clothes have been made in the sewing factory in Kokkola, Finland.
Inspiration for PaaPii’s clothes comes from everyday life – nature, poems, and people too. All of PaaPii’s clothes are designed and sewn in an solar powered factory. They make clothes with the sun! The fabrics are made of organic cotton and are suitable for sensitive skin. They value the fact, that our clothes are made ecologically and ethically in Finland.
In the past decade, PaaPii has grown from a modest crafting business into a beautiful success story. Today the fabrics and clothes are sold all over the world – on four different continents! PaaPii has 22 employees and produces nearly 60 000 garments annually.
