Our story began with the idea of nettle-based textiles and more precise: an base layer that would be specially suitable for athopic skin. Based on this, Kniteco ltd was founded 2021.Things have developed since that – now we are even more focused on nettle – and all parts and uses of it, not only textile.
Our brand and trademark “Nokkoste” is all about nettle.
We think this versatile, humble weed deserves all the attention it can get. As part of our journey, we focused more on all the qualities and substances contained in nettle. This led us to new textile- and skin care related product ideas, the focus of which are substances obtained from nettle. We work in cooperation with Natural Resources Institute Finland and other experts.
