The name “cuitu”

The name of Cuitu is a combination of material aspect and the philosophy of Cuitu to solve the issues in the fashion industry and to provide better alternative options. 

The word ‘cuitu’ written with ‘k’ instead of ‘c’ is Finnish and means ‘fiber’. We wanted to include the material aspect in the name of our company because we pay close attention to the fibers we use.

Then again, ’cuitu’ written with ‘c’ is derived from the Latin word ’circuitus’ which means ‘circuit’ or ‘cycle’. This represents the idea of Cuitu supporting circular economy. The whole life cycle of the product is important, from raw materials to life after usage.

 

From personal shame to business

We know what we are talking about, because we have over ten years experience of being a sh*tty consumer buying clothes and promoting use-once-and-dispose culture. The situation is complicated because we want to be on top of trends, but also to choose more sustainable options.

The dilemma is, that there just aren’t enough sustainable yet trendy options available. That’s why we decided to get what we wanted and put up a brand ourselves.

We have an eternal hunger to explore the unexpected, create fashion pieces of experimental materials and make them available for everyone!

Transparency

On the product page (coming soon!) you’ll find the origin of every material, component and production place of each product. We are honest with you. If we don’t know something, we’ll tell you that too. Let’s see if we can solve it together! 

Design is our PRIOrity no.1

Design is where it all begins. Design is not only how the product looks but how it adapts to your everyday life. When it comes to fashion, we feel you can rarely say trendy and ecological in the same breath, but wait for it, on 28th November you’ll find out what takes your breath away.
