Kaiko was found in the end of 2016, when the founder of the company, Mirjam Sokka, was wondering how she could combine fashion with charity. Kaiko directs 7% of the profit of clothes sold to the education of women and children in developing countries. With the help of the money donated through Women's Bank, for example training has been organized in Nepal where local people get support in running their own business and thus get a chance for a better livelihood and future for their children.
During their almost five-year history they, together with their customers, have donated over 28,000 euros to their aid project in the Lalitpur region in Nepal. They feel that the cooperation with Women's Bank gives them a direct influence on enhancing women's quality of life and, at the same time, they can give their customers a real way to make a difference.
Kaiko collections are designed in Helsinki, Finland. Majority of their products are made in a finnish-owned factory in Portugal.
