Papu's collections are born from the collaboration of designers and an artist. Papu is best known for its unisex graphic prints and high-quality, long lasting products made from GOTS-certified organic cotton.
Papu’s clothes are designed to last: they genuinely grow with the child. Double buttons on babies’ bodysuits, sleeves with rollable cuffs and turn-up leggings make Papu clothes fit children a lot longer.
Organic cotton has always been the material of choice at Papu. The GOTS certified organic cotton we use originates from Turkey.
Organic cotton farming has a smaller environmental footprint than ordinary cotton. On top of that, organic cotton farmers are not exposed to dangerous pesticides.
Papu is keeping a close eye on the development of new materials. We’re actively searching for even more environmentally sound alternatives to organic cotton.
The majority of our clothes are produced by Cottonhouse Ltd., a Portugal-based factory owned by Finnish textile company Black Moda. During over twenty years of operating in Portugal, Black Moda has established a trusted network of local partners. This translates to short transportation distances and seamless production from dyeing thread to sewing the final product. The GOTS certified organic cotton thread for Papu clothes is imported to the factory from Turkey.
Small amounts of Papu clothes are also produced in Finland.
From the very start, our ambition has been to produce our clothes in an ethical and sustainable way. We at Papu strongly believe that a company, too, can help make the world a better place by choosing to act responsibly in its everyday work.
