Finland-based fashion brand, Marita Huurinainen officially launched its new Invesdor campaign to secure a minimum of €100,000 (max €400,000) for company expansion. The company made a name for itself after creating its ethical fur and leather concept, WILD, and its patented wooden design shoe, WAVE. It previously launched a crowdfunding campaign on FundedByMe and raised 171,597 from 106 investors.
Marita Huurinainen is a fashion and lifestyle brand that offers ready-to-wear clothing, accessories, and shoes. The company revealed that in 2013, the company’s namesake, Marita Huurinainen, met with Andreas Jank to introduce the WILD furs and WAVE shoe concepts. Andreas was notably immediately convinced about Huurinaine’s products and the duo established the brand later that year. Since then, the company’s products have developed, becoming highly successful internationally. It currently has customers across Europe, the U.S. and Asia.
“Marita Huurinainen’s WILD Concept is a new approach to enjoying fur. This fur accessories collection consists of beautiful, elegant and light fur items. What makes WILD unique is that it offers an ethical and responsible way of wearing fur as it is not using fur of any farmed animals. WILD allows you to enjoy fur with a good conscience. WAVE is a beautiful, elegant, light and comfortable summer shoe with a truly revolutionary and unique design that has been developed by Marita Huurinainen.”
“Based on the two highlight collections WILD and WAVE, it is easy for Marita Huurinainen to stand out from the competition to quickly gain attention. Paired with the more mainstream clothing line, the company has a strong product mix to generate revenues and to quickly build an internationally successful fashion brand with Finnish roots.”
Since its launch, the campaign has successfully secured over half its initial goal. It is set to close mid-October.
