Andiata is a long-standing women-led family business based in Helsinki, Finland. Since its inception in 1986, the company's core mission has been to build a sustainable future of fashion with timeless style, craftmanship and high-quality materials. Andiata's ambition is to design iconic pieces for the contemporary, conscious and driven woman without sacrificing comfort and ease of wear.
From mothers to daughters
Andiata is led by a pioneering mother-and-daughter duo, Tarja and Matilda. The core ethos of the company reflects this dynamic – a desire to create designs that can be passed from generation to the next and be loved by women of all ages. The combination of Parisian elegance and minimalism inspired by Nordic nature gives Andiata's designs its unique appeal and functionality – pieces that develop a personal significance over time and aesthetic that never ceases to inspire.
Andiatas head office and design studio is based in Vallila, close to central Helsinki. At the hub of creation and commerce, Tarja and Matilda lead the business along with team of 15 highly skilled women – from production management to marketing. In this close-knit community, the design team works shoulder-to-shoulder with our personal pattern makers and seamstresses producing garments of impeccable tailoring and craftmanship. Andiata's centralized working method has a variety of benefits, sustainability being one of them – it decreases logistic need thus reducing our carbon footprint.
To support Andiata's growth, we are constantly on the search for new talent. Andiata employs teams of design and pattern making, production management, purchasing, marketing, logistics, wholesale, e-commerce and financial departments – all of them working at our head office in Vallila, Helsinki. We offer internships regularly for students in these above-mentioned fields.
If you are interested in joining our ever-growing team of skillful individuals, discover our career opportunities and available internships at our head office and stores. You can also submit an open application to us.
