Local Production - Made in Finland

SaagaMaria brand aims to connect local small businesses around the founder, Saaga Lamusuo´s hometown in Finland. The idea of employing the local community serves the socially sustainable aspects of the business. The core idea is to make each and every step in the production chain with love, passion and professionalism. And the best way to do so is to let everyone do the things they do the best and that they enjoy the most.

Saaga realised early on that her passion was in the design and concept creation. That is how the story of our brand started as she found local businesses to do the parts they did the best. And here we are, sharing our passion for fashion, design and sustainability.
