Kaissu highly values slow consumption, durability, and ecologically responsible manufacturing.

Responsible & respectful

Durable, renewable and reusable

‘Sustainability’ remains a broad concept rather than a precise attainable goal. At Kaissu, we believe in throwing light on the actual respectful steps that values the nature, the environment we live in, the creator, and the buyer.

We use durable, renewable, and reusable materials. This way, we can keep recycling the furniture – our furniture can be handed down to grandchildren or someone’s old becomes someone else’s new without appearing damaged or worn. And if, one day, the piece of furniture can no longer find a new owner, it will not become a burden on nature, but instead, a part of it.

5-year warranty

Through time, investing in and taking care of built-to-last items is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly option. Kaissu encourages the long view and taking of long-term responsibility. Our products last for a lifetime, that’s also the reason why we are confident to provide a 5-year warranty to all of our products.

The warranty covers the defects in materials or workmanship that existed when the product was purchased. The warranty is valid in the European Union.

Disclaimer: This warranty does not cover damage or breakage caused by misuse, accidents, extreme temperature variations, negligence, mistreatment, or natural wear and tear.

Minimal environmental impact

Creative reuse of furniture production waste turns solid wood offcuts into charming design elements. This way we can have near zero production waste.

Our minimalist designs are packed in equally minimalist packaging while ensuring the minimal time needed to put the items into use. Smaller packaging means fewer resources required for manufacturing and transportation.

Kaissu plants you a tree

There is currently a poor diversity of tree species in Estonian forests. We’re especially lacking of broadleaved species (oak, ash, elm, basswood, maple etc) and mixed forests. Although all types of wood are cut down for economic reasons, most reforestations include only spruce, pine and birch. No other organization currently plants broadleaved trees in Estonia besides the non-profit nature conservancy organization Koosloodus Foundation.

With the help of Koosloodus Foundation Kaissu can give back to nature – for each piece of oak furniture purchased we will plant a broadleaf tree. In spring, when the trees have been planted, we will send our customers GPS coordinates and a photo of the formed Kaissu forest. Each tree will be taken care of during its lifetime and it will be forever protected by Koosloodus Foundation.
