Mikä on Remiumin DNA?
Nokian Neulomon innovaatio on valmis, värjätty Remium-neulossekoite, jossa on hyödynnetty puukuitua ja vaateteollisuuden leikkuujätepuuvillaa sisältävää Refibra™-kuitua. Kuitu on kehrätty langaksi Euroopassa, kehitetyt neulokset on neulottu Orivedellä ja niiden värjäys, painaminen ja muu käsittely tapahtuu Nokian Neulomolla.

Mitä ovat Refibra™ ja Nokian Neulomon Remium-neulos?
Nokian Neulomon toiminta saatiin kaksi vuotta sitten pyörimään teidän tukenne ansiosta! Nokian Neulomon tavoitteena on alusta alkaen ollut tuotteiden ohella tehdä myös uusia materiaali-innovaatioita ja muuttaa vaateteollisuutta. Kesällä 2017 Nokian Neulomo kutsuttiin tuotekehitystyöhön kehittämään high-end -neulosta Lenzingin leikkuujätepuuvillaan ja puukuituihin pohjautuvasta Refibra™-kuidusta. Premium-neuloksen kehitykseen Nokian Neulomo on ideaali kumppani, sillä tuotannolla on pitkäaikainen kokemus sekä erikoiskehrättyjenlankojen käytöstä että lyocell-kuitujen värjäyksestä ja painamisesta.

Etuoikeus vai unelma? Weecos tukee Väestöliiton seksuaalioikeustyötä
Väestöliiton ja Weecosin Etuoikeus vai unelma? –kampanja on askel kohti tasa-arvoisempaa yhteiskuntaa, jossa kaikilla on oikeus näkyä ja kuulua juuri sellaisena kuin on ilman pelkoa syrjinnästä, leimautumisesta saatikka väkivallasta. Kampanjallamme haluamme Väestöliiton kanssa varmistaa, että seksuaalioikeudet ovat jokaisen perusoikeus tulevaisuudessa. Seksuaalioikeudet koskettavat jokaisen elämää, mutta niistä voi olla vaikea puhua. Monesti kiemurtelu johtuu siitä, että seksuaalioikeudet liitetään seksiin. […]
ETUOIKEUS VAI UNELMA? – Mitä seksuaalioikeudet ovat?
Seksuaalioikeuksilla tarkoitetaan vapautta päättää tietoisesti omaan seksuaalisuuteensa liittyvistä asioista, eli oikeutta määritellä kuka on, millainen haluaa olla ja miten haluaa tulla nähdyksi. Toisille tämä kaikki on etuoikeus, arkipäivää. Toisille se on vain unelmaa. *** Seksuaalioikeuksia pidetään Suomessa helposti itsestäänselvyytenä, vaikka kaikkien seksuaalioikeudet eivät toteudu täälläkään. Väestöliiton ja Weecosin yhteistyö on askel kohti tasa-arvoisempaa yhteiskuntaa, jossa […]

ETUOIKEUS VAI UNELMA? SEKSUAALIOIKEUDET OVAT IHMISOIKEUKSIA
Oikeus perhesuunnitteluun, turvalliseen aborttiin tai tietoon seksuaalisuudesta ei ole itsestäänselvyys. Seksuaalioikeuksien hyssyttelyn sijaan ja konservatiivisten äänten vastavoimaksi tarvitaan seksuaalioikeuksien puolestapuhujia ja rohkeita keskustelijoita enemmän kuin koskaan. Weecos haluaa edistää yhteiskuntaa, jossa jokainen on oikeanlainen ja saa näkyä juuri sellaisena kuin on ilman pelkoa syrjinnästä, leimautumisesta saatikka väkivallasta. Siksi aloitamme yhteistyön Väestöliiton seksuaalioikeuksia edistävän yksikön kanssa. […]

Laura Saarivuori-Eskola makes jewellery out of old silver cutlery and Finnish coins.
