The business idea is to use natural fibres in manufacturing high-quality garments for people who value unique design. Developing the hand-woven Poppana is Annikki’s innovation, which has made her known as bold and individual designer both home and abroad. She has turned hand-woven materials into international fashion. It is her innovation, her love and her life, together with the use of strong colors. To complement the hand-woven collection, she has designed a light and feminine clothing line made of industrial fabrics.
"I want to design and produce fashion made in Finland for all ages and all figure types, for consumers who are interested in high-quality, timeless clothes", says Annikki Karvinen about her fashion ideology. It also includes constant desire for product development, innovative thinking and search for new materials.
