Slide Social responsibility Design is important to us but not at any price. We highly value acting fairly, both in cooperation with producers and their employees and in how we use the materials for our products.

Kinta products are made by people, not by machines. Therefore we aim for good working conditions, fair payment and good housing for all employees. Kinta will always strive to improve products, the production process and working conditions. We visit our producers (normally) multiple times a year to keep the cooperation up-to-date.
Slide We design by using materials that are sufficiently and sustainably available in the regions that our products are created. Our goal is to create timeless collections of high quality with products that complement each other in many ways. In this way, our products are created to enjoy for over a long time.

Slide Beautiful and fair Frans Noordhuis (founder and owner Kinta, The Hague, 1955):
It is more than a quarter of a century ago that I decided to start producing in a durable way, based on the idea of fair trade. I am very pleased that the market for our type of products keeps growing. We are bound to see some happy faces in the countries in which we produce.’

Nicoline Wrisberg (owner and product developer Kinta, Copenhagen 1961):
‘First of all we want to put beautiful and authentic products on the market. Design is very important for us. But not at any price! It must appeal to everyone. We work only with local suppliers whom we pay fairly for their work and with whom we also make agreements about good working conditions.’
