The woman behind Nokonen, Aino Kovalainen, is a long term professional in the clothing industry. Ecological values have always been a part of Aino's design ideology, and Nokonen is strongly based on them too.
All clothes and textiles of Nokonen are hand made in Helsinki, and every piece is unique. The patterns are hand painted, and the main materials used are ecological and natural.
Nokonen isn't focused on collections, but creates timeless, convertible multipurpose clothes.
All the fabrics of Nokonen come from Italy from a factory in which the production respects both the environment and the production workers. The materials used are nettle, hemp and raw silk. The fabrics have the GOTS, Oeko-tex, Eu Ecolabel and ICEA-certificates, which guarantee a non-toxic and an open production chain.
