Jämä is a Finnish word meaning scraps or leftovers. It’s also one of our house brands for equipment made from recycled or surplus materials. From time to time we accumulate stuff that doesn't sell well but is made out of outstanding materials. We've also got several capable seamstresses here, and the equation is pretty clear: cut that useless stuff apart and sew it back together to create something useful.

This is how a variety of Jämä products were born. The selection varies a bit from time to time and these are manufactured as demand and our resources allow. In the spirit of recycling and surplus, we also seize the opportunity when we come across stock material from other manufacturers, that might be off-season or something. If it's Jämä, it might be made from anything under the sun.

Because Finnish labour is one of the most expensive in the world, these are very simple, practical and rugged in design. Our development and prototype production remain in-house while most of the production is outsourced to Turku - still within Finland. Simplicity means strength: the fewer parts there are, the smaller the chance of breaking anything.
