The Aleksiina Design products are all manufactured in Finland.
The jewelry are made in our own studio in Tampere and clothing in Aleksiina's own sewing shop in Jyväskylä Finnish knitting manufacturers are used in the production of the knitwear.
Materials for products such as fabrics and jewelery wood and metal parts are mainly purchased from Finnish wholesalers and manufacturers. In addition, parts and materials are purchased from England and Germany.
Wood and acrylic
The wood used in our jewelery is a Finnish birch plywood with certificates PEFC (wood chain authentication) and FSC (wood comes from well-managed forests that produce ecological, social and economic benefits). Plywood can be discarded by burning.
We use Perspex acrylic. Acrylic (PMMA) can be discarded by incineration in an appropriate waste treatment plant where the flue gases are treated properly and the resulting energy is recovered.
The metal parts of jewelery are nickel free and lead-free according to the EU directive. Often parts are silver-plated.
Jewelery is hand-painted either with water-borne acrylic paint or with organic wood-based paints. We do not use color printing as colouring the jewelry and we do not use Spray Paints for dyeing.
We do not use separate packaging for the clothes.
In jewelery we use a simple cardboard card and, if necessary, a cellophane bag. We do not use jewelery boxes because they are almost always cushioned with foam.
In postal packages, we use paper and cardboard.
All our packaging materials can be discarded by burning.
Happy Finnish Fashion!
