t e a m TAIKKA

It all started in London 2012. 

TAIKKA London “We have the great British weather to thank for the TAIKKA concept. After we met in London, we realised the necessity of having a bag that is rain-proof, but doesn’t sacrifice style or quality. As something we all rely on as part of our daily lives, handbags were a natural first step for TAIKKA.” – Riikka Juva and Mia Jones, TAIKKA founders. Crafted from high quality fabrics, TAIKKA is best described as everyday luxury without the price tag. In seeking out alternatives to leather (which is easily damaged by rain), TAIKKA work with innovative textiles that are practical, durable and sustainable.  

TAIKKA Helsinki TAIKKA bags take their cue from the Nordic minimalist aesthetic that Riikka knows and loves; think muted external colours and understated silhouettes. Helsinki forecasts can be unpredictable to say the least, so Riikka wanted to create bags that were weather-smart for every season. With family ties to Brazil and specifically the colourful city of São Paolo, Riikka wanted to incorporate the country’s love of all things bright and beautiful into their bags and that’s why the bags have playful, fun interiors.   

TAIKKA Melbourne Whether reclining on sandy beaches, or pounding the city streets, Melbourne-native Mia knew the importance of a multi-functional bag. Crafted from denim, nylon and neoprene, all TAIKKA bags are water-resistant, or more specifically, weather-proof. Blending the urban landscape with the surf-ready waves, the neoprene collection blends two very different skylines, for bags that are both edgy and hard-wearing. This is style with substance.
