Teatiamo started its journey in January 2016. Teatiamo was born out of an urge to break boundaries related to design and at the same time design something timeless and beautiful.
The founder and designer Tea Latvala wanted to break some of the taboos that still hang over us. These taboos are born out of old traditions, values and believes.
Teatiamo products and brand are all about learning to accept and love yourself.
“In some ways, I feel like I am a pioneer of some sorts. My products are not anything new, but it does feel like I have hit some nerve since there has been so much controversy and discussion around my business.”
Tea was born in a small town called Kurikka, located in Pohjanmaa region in Finland where both of Tea’s parents worked in wood refinement factory during seventies and eighties. Tea’s fathers profession was a carpenter and no wonder their daughter developed a special relationship with wood and nature already in an early age.
Tea graduated from Helsinki University of Art and Design in 2007 and that is where she found her interest to future research and trends. She pursued her career as an Art Director, and realised she had a passion to create something new and meaningful.
Tea Latvala is the Founder and CEO of the startup called TEATIAMO. It was born out of an urge to break boundaries and at the same time design something timeless and elegant.
