As we dwell our each day lives, it’s simple to get “caught” in our traditional routines and locations which we commute to or stroll by. Essentially the most attention-grabbing retailers, secret spots, cute cafes and such are normally discovered scattered by way of the skin of the strict metropolis centre. It’s the identical case with NEST Helsinki which only recently opened on Korkkeavuorenkatu in Ullanlinna district.
NEST Helsinki is sort of a breath of recent air in essentially the most trendy and frequented a part of Helsinki. There are many little cafes and particular retailers with completely different native designer names however solely NEST sells distinctive, ecological and sustainable designs all handmade!
Three inspiring girls have opened NEST Helsinki with a lot love and thought put into it and each element on the store is simply as if it was alleged to be like that or there. I’m completely happy to assist them and their enterprise and I hope that you simply’ll have an interest to study extra about them and what yow will discover at NEST Helsinki. 🙂
I’m beginning with Tracey, my candy good friend, identified below model identify Nest Manufacturing facility. I’ve identified her for couple of years and because the day one, she’s been one inspiring, spot of sunshine human in my life. From her passionate assist for ladies in India who’re making all of her designs by hand and within the oldest custom identified, one thing that’s nearly dying out and due to this fact so uncommon these days to her imaginative and prescient and fixed perception in shiny way forward for small companies and supportive neighborhood.

Tracey’s inspiration are colors, her journeys (particularly to India) and bringing two opposites like India and Finland collectively in her designs. When deciding on the designs her main although is “romantic vs. ethnic”.
She loves working at NEST Helsinki and although Nest Manufacturing facility has webshop, she loves the interplay along with her prospects which pop by the store each day and sharing the house with different two likeminded designers however least favorite a part of the job could be the “unknown” state of affairs throughout pandemic instances and relying on supply providers/ put up to obtain her designs since they’re all made in India.
