The heart of TAIKKA lies in its name, translated from Finnish as ‘either/or’. Designed with an idea that a bag should work in multiple situations during the day- EITHER as a day organiser OR as an evening clutch.
Riikka Juva and Mia Jones met in London, but their roots are at opposite ends of the globe: Helsinki and Melbourne. One enjoyed year-round sunshine, the other was more familiar with rain and snow. In their search for a bag that suited all seasons and pursuits, the company was born.
TAIKKA is a shining example of running a business in the digital age. Their desks may be situated half a world apart, but with the help of modern technology, Riikka and Mia have turned what may be seen as a stumbling block into a positive. Thanks to their opposite time zones, TAIKKA operates 24 hours a day, catering to customers all across the globe.
