"Combination of experience in handicrafts and materials, a vision of style and a strive for ecological, lasting solutions."
Costo is a Finnish headwear and accessory brand founded by three Finnish designers combining their visions and skills to make something new in the field of design. The company started in 2006 in a basement room using industrial leftover materials for creating environmentally sustainable and good-looking designs.
The fabrics & leathers Costo uses are carefully selected small leftover quantities of branded, European design fabrics & leathers from companies that serve the furniture and fashion industry. Costo uses only mulesing free South African merino wool by Filivivi and the organic cotton by Gebrueder Otto is GOTS-certified. All yarn suppliers comply with ISO standards and have the Oeko-Tex certificate.
All other materials except merino wool come from the European area. Products are manufactured in Finland and Estonia.
