Scandinavian design meets Indian craft

TIKAU means sustainable and durable in Hindi. TIKAU is a finnish company that has a passion to help encourage and maintain traditional handicraft in Indian villages by working together and employing people there. … The products are beautiful, natural and I love the idea that if you buy a product from the TIKAU you are supporting sustainable development in India!.

Find out more about TIKAU Share project here: Design Helps Living Room is a Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 event, demonstrating and generating ideas about the ways that design can bring about well-being. The Living Room will present various other cases of how design can be applied to the empowerment and sustainable development of under-privileged communities.
