Company: Paikka Web Address: Contact Name: Tea Kainu AIKKA is dedicated to offering unique, human-grade pet accessories for use both outdoors and indoors. It wants to create the very best for its customer’s dogs, but also do good for the planet. It does this by choosing the most environmentally friendly materials possible, but without compromising on safety or the necessary features of the product. It is committed to continuous improvement of its processes, and repurposing its textile residues. Each PAIKKA design is created with the best and most durable materials, alongside respected partners who are famed for making outdoor apparel, high fashion, and award-winning designs for humans. PAIKKA thinks it is essential its products be long-lasting, even in the toughest conditions Finnish nature can impose. This is why it is paramount for it to respect our shared environment. PAIKKA’s products use unique and patented technology. It is perhaps best known for its PAIKKA cooling bowls, with (patented) cooling tech. These bowls will keep food or water fresh for up to 10 hours, without the need for electricity or any other external power source. The cool bowls benefits from beautiful Scandinavian design, and encourage pets to drink more to stay hydrated and healthy. All the unique ceramic bowls require is to be soaked under tap water for 45 seconds, and the cooling effect will be activated. Other unique materials are used in PAIKKA recovery products such as clothes, beds, and blankets. These materials help to boost recovery for tired dogs by promoting blood circulation and increasing oxygen levels in the blood. They use a Special Far infrared (FIR) emitting material designed to boost the natural recovery process post-exercise. These blankets contain a wool mix for warmth, and can even be shared. They work equally as well for humans! PAIKKA follows trends from the human industry very carefully, as much is readily adaptable. Its in-house team has a wealth of experience within the (human) fashion and sports industries, and in addition all PAIKKA products are produced in factories which only produce human-grade products. This enables access to trends long before many competitors, and allows PAIKKA itself to be something of a real trendsetter. P
