Kativee   Kativee clothing, accessories and jewelry label is created by designer Kati Viljala. Kativee's style is classical and minimalistic, spiced with pure sculptural details. Collections are often inspired by different contrasts in materials and shapes. Rough yet delicate metal leaf plated concrete jewelry is a good example of this interesting mix of materials.  These wear-everywhere pieces are created mostly in our studio, located in Frank/ie Helsinki shop. Designing and jewelry making happens in our upstairs loft. Samples and unique pieces are also made in the back room of the shop, as is the majority of all production. All Kativee products are made in Finland.
