ORGANIC & SUSTAINABLE
Organic cotton is grown without the use of any toxic chemicals such as synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. The production supports biodiversity and biological cycles that is beneficial to human health and the environment. It keeps the soil quality and uses 62 % less energy, also 88 % less water. The colours are hand dyed using plant based dyes which gives the yarn a very natural, soft look. Therefore we use organic cotton to leave our children a better world and we make sure that we do our duty to protect women who are using their magical hands to crochet our products. They receive a fair income to support their families and children. Our products have been CE-tested after European standard EN71-1, EN71-2, EN71-3 and comply with European toy safety standards.
BEHIND PATTI OSLO
What started as a hobby project in 2019, after relocating to Oslo to live with John-Erik who encouraged me to start a label, I decided to design a small collection of hand crochet toys and went to local design markets to see a response from tiny hands and grown ups, business has developed overtime into a fine small-sized company, which now collaborates with women in need an income and contribute them to support their families and children. The creative process always starts with looking at my childhood memories, remembering how my beautiful mother created lovely crochet items for our house and growing up by adding her skill to mine, it always challenges me to push for more imagination. I design and crochet several different types until I truly fall in love with the last model. After that, I create the pattern and crochet prototype to get tested by a laboratory to comply with European toy safety standards. After several months of work, the final production comes to life by skilled artisans with magical hands.
