Tikau, creating the time to care

Tikau at Maison et Objet 2012.

Discovering new designers is something I love to do at Maison et Objet. A Finnish company, Tikau, (Hindi for sustainable and durable) is definitely a new company to watch as it combines Scandinavian design with traditional Indian craftmanship. Top that off with the fact that they are ecologically sound. They use organic cotton, such raw materials like banana fiber as well as recycled saris. The fact that they know each and every one of their designers who come from rural Indian villages, really make me want to learn more about what they do and the story behind each piece. Someone’s skilled hands and imagination make every thing that we hold dear exciting and useful. That’s something to smile about.
