Kaiko’s products are manufactured ethically in Portugal, Finland, Nepal, Italy, Estonia and Turkey. We do not select manufacturers with price as the main priority; rather, we put effort in finding responsible long-term partners and openly communicate about our manufacturers. We believe that our customers have the right to know about the conditions from which each piece they are considering to purchase comes from.


Portugal and Italy

Most of Kaiko’s jersey and fabric clothes are manufactured in Portugal. Socks are made in Italy.

Finland and Estonia

All of our jersey and merino wool accessories are manufactured in Finland. The Kaiko caps are made in Estonia.

Nepal and Turkey

The handmade Kaiko jewellery as well as our Cashmere accessories and knits are manufactured in Nepal. The swimsuit collection that launched in 2022 is also made in Nepal. In 2022, some of our sheets have been manufactured in Turkey.

Transparent prices

It is one of top priorities to ensure that employees involved at every stage of our production are paid fairly for their labor. Furthermore, we do not compromise on the environment or our employees’ wellbeing to bring prices down.
The retail price (SRP) of a product is made up of different expenses, depending on the specifics of a piece. Below is an example of the price breakdown of our classic Cashmere Cardigan knit that is manufactured in Nepal.
