In 2012 mother-of-two and fashion designer Anna Kurkela decided to prove that with our own decisions and example, we can change the world. To join this journey Anna found artist Hanna-Riikka Heikkilä, with whom a beautiful friendship as well as collaboration began, and Papu was born. The company has now become an international brand with 18 employed professionals.
The Kanto Dress, Patch Leggings and Baggy trousers, not to mention many of Papus memorable prints have become Papus classics.
Each Papu collection tells a story through colours, shapes and little details. The high-quality products of the collections combine timeless design by Anna and playful prints by Hanna-Riikka. Papu's aesthetics and values stand for playful unisex prints, timeless design and conscious choices.
The aim of the brand is to please both kids and adults by making playful yet stylish clothing, for adults too.
