Kierto Circular Economy
Kierto (free translation: Cycle) is our way of giving a new life to fully functional products that have, for some reason, been left unused. We buy back still usable Kierto eligible products and resell them to the next happy camper.See available Kierto products See Kierto returns instructions
Kierto means durability
The products that we believe to last from user to user get the Kierto return guarantee, which is valid as long as Varusteleka is in business.
Kierto includes a wide selection of products from our own brands: Särmä, Särmä TST, Jämä and Terävä, excluding some wool products and underwear. In addition, we have included in Kierto products deemed solid enough from other brands, such as Savotta, as well as selected surplus items. Kierto-eligible items are equipped with the Kierto product -label.
First and foremost, Kierto is our way of fighting for the environment and against overconsumption. With Kierto we aim to take care that usable products from our assortment don’t end up in a dump way too soon. As a result, there is less need to add waste or unnecessary goods into the world.
Products with the Kierto label are made to last. You can be sure that these products are designed to stand the test of time and living.
If your need for a product ceases to exist, the money you invested in it is not all lost. You can use your refund credits to buy new equipment or even beer, if you happen to visit us in Helsinki.
You can acquire used, yet quality gear with a smaller investment.
Kierto reduces the amount of unnecessary waste and preserves the resources of our Earth. You transform from being a consumer to being a user.
Kierto encourages you to take good care of your clothing and gear.

When returned, you get a refund of 50% or 20% from the product's original price in Varusteleka store credits. These credits can be used in our web store, brick & mortar shop, pop-up store, or even in Bar Sotima.
