About

We are a design studio that focuses on creating spatial products, installations and artwork using natural materials made from local waste resources. Our work offers an alternative to environmentally harmful materials. All of our materials and products are manufactured in our workshop in Helsinki using unique techniques. We believe in creating outcomes that are in harmony with nature, and want to inspire people and companies to join the bio-movement.

Caracara gets its name from a bird, which is native to Central and South America. Like many birds, caracaras collect ‘waste’ and create their nests from it. This reflects our vision of recycling and making use of what is available. Also, caracara is a type of orange whose peel is one of the key ingredients of our materials.
