Taival is know from cool, cute and yet easy-to-wear clothes for kids. Having street cred and feeling comfortable in one’s clothes is one of the main cornerstones in designing Taival. From the beginning, environmental and ethical issues have been an important basis what to build on when planning our production.
Using GOTS & Öko-Tex certified fabrics and other materials, working with dressmakers and factories that value human and pure nature as it is has been not only huge idealistic words for us, but above all a matter of heart and soul.
With SS18 collection Wild Waters Taival is taking a direction towards being a more edgy kids clothing brand. Spring/summer 2018 is all about the dynamic movement of water with a slight hint of rock – being strong but delicate as Taival known to be. The collection has taken its inspiration from tropical oceans and the beautiful wonders that lie under the surface. In this collection, water elements are brought into kid’s streetwear by combining it with minimalistic, interestingly detailed pieces of clothing.
The unique patterns are designed by Hanna Laurikainen, a talented young designer. The clothes are designed by Paulina Sundell, founder of Taival Clothing. Together with a great team and superb customers Taival has today developed into a growing brand reaching people around the world to share the story.

Taival Clothing is a new, Finnish children’s clothing label producing cool, cute and comfortable clothes. Designs are inspired by street fashion and nature with its beautiful elements. All clothes are designed in Finland, fulfilled in collaboration with talented pattern designers and made in Estonia in a small atelier. All accessory is made in Finland. We use double sizes, which means long, foldable cuffs that let the garment grow along the kid for a bit longer.
One of our top design guidelines in addition to quality is to make the clothes to feel good to kids themselves. Kids often have a very practical attitude towards clothes: clothes have to be comfortable and suitable for play and games. That is why we pay high attention to suitability for kids when choosing materials. Fabrics and other materials used must be high quality, soft, and free from harmful substances. In our clothes we use fabrics certified with Öko-Tex Standard 100 and print our shirts with non-toxic colors, which means that the products are safe to use.
From the AW17 collection onward most of our clothes are made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, coming from a Finnish-owned factory in Portugal. Fabrics of the AW17 collection are also Öko-Tex Stardard 100 -certified. Additionally we have chosen soft organic cotton as a material for our labels and strive to find as soft care labels as possible. Because details do matter.
We aim at minimize strain of nature, since being environmentally friendly is a high priority to us. That is why our products are not delivered wrapped in plastic multiple times. Taival clothes are designed to be long-lasting being double sized. That means we pay high attention to quality of not only fabrics but also production. All of our products are tested for durability in wash and use. If defects are noted, we take action to solve them.
When Paulina, the founder of Taival Clothing, first started designing for those we love most – our children – she quickly noticed that it was what she was meant to do. All the fun and pretty patterns, all the soft fabrics, and all the “Oh, so small clothes”! After a few years in the making, a new clothing label was born.
A lot of planning, designing, notebooks full of sketches and wild blueprints, and the very first full collection was created. That collection, even though planned first, will see the light of day in autumn 2017. Before that, a small foretaste of what Taival is will be seen.
And what is Taival besides a Finnish word for a journey? Taival is a Finnish clothing label taking ideas not only from street fashion but also from all things cute and cool. When it comes to designing, we want to stay true to ourselves to be able to stay true to You and Your kids. Our clothes are strong and yet delicate. They are cool everyday clothes – relaxed and cozy, ideal for curious kids exploring the World!
Taival collections are designed with love and fulfilled in collaboration with talented pattern designers and seamstresses. When choosing materials, we have thought every detail, as we are not only interested in being stylish and of high quality – it is also a matter of ethics and being environmentally friendly. It is also a high priority to us that the clothes we make are comfortable, easy to wear and feel good.
We mainly use organic cotton in our clothes, and choose our manufacturers carefully. Clothes are designed to be double sizes. Details, such as foldable cuffs, let the garment grow with the child for a bit longer. We also appreciate the creativity of others and want to enable using Taival patterns also on your own designs, giving you the opportunity to choose fabrics instead of ready-made clothes. Either way, come and start Your Taival with us!
