Once upon a time…

Papu Design was founded in 2012, when the mother of two, and clothing designer Anna Kurkela wanted to show that with your own example and decisions one can change the world. Stylish and ethically made children’s clothes were hard to find, so Anna felt she had to do something about it. She found artist Hanna-Riikka Heikkilä to join her on this journey, and it was the beginning of their friendship, collaboration and now growing and international children’s clothing brand.

The first collection ”Papu and the Shower of Buttons” sold out quickly after the launch in 2013 and some of the products became recognizable Papu Classics. In addition to children’s clothing, the collections now include clothes for adults too, and from time to time other lifestyle products, such as storybooks and home products.

Papu ponders and giggles! Each Papu collection tells a story through colours, shapes and little details. The high-quality products of the collections combine timeless design by Anna and playful prints of Hanna-Riikka.

During the past years, Papu has grown quickly to a company that now employs over ten people, with over 30 retailers in Finland and over 70 abroad! With the happy and motivated team, reliable partners and amazing customers Papu will continue to spread its message around the world… We invite you to join the adventure!

Anna Kurkela
Founder and Designer

Anna is the mother of Papu and two real world children. She is inspired by the bustle of cities but dreams about moving to the countryside. Full of visions and plans, Anna also has what it takes to make them into reality.

""The reason behind founding the Papu brand was a desire to design lovely yet practical children’s clothes, but also to manage their production as responsibly as possible. Designing children’s clothes is like a wonderful game, but there are aspects to it you have to take seriously. I want to be able to proudly stand behind everything I do."
" Anna
Hanna-Riikka Heikkilä
Art Director and Print Designer

Sharped-eyed visualist & design professional, with a special talent in finding the right colours. Hanna-Riikka’s art can be found in significant Finnish art museums, and she has over 10 years of experience in (among others) teaching art

"For me, Papu is a unique playground, where I can create visual experiences and meaning for people’s everyday life. Each time I am full of joy when I see someone wearing the prints I have drawn, and I notice them coming to life in the clothes. The best thing about Papu is the combination of its ethical values, positive energy, and esthetics while the brand goes forward." Hanna-Riikka
