in the beginning
Officially opening in 2011, we named the company Kivikis, and the ideas began to run from there. The further we looked into the business aspects and opportunities, the more we found a fresh market for such hand crafted wool felted items in the EU and the US, where there were practically none available. This new market made it possible for our business to expand quickly and gain the notoriety that it has today.
We have become a flourishing business since our humble beginnings as a small business out of the founders’ home, with nothing more than a great idea, and wonderful product. It quickly filled their bedroom, and spilled into the rest of their house, a great sign that their idea was a huge success. Since then, we have expanded into a large felting house with many experienced crafts people that create our beautiful felted cat houses.
What Sets Us Apart?
We supply the EU and the US with 100% eco-friendly items. Kivikis began making felted items with luxury natural sheep’s wool from Australia, and continue with that same quality today in our larger operation. Using the softest ecological merino wool, silk used for trimming, wool fabric and linen fibers sets our company apart from any other available in the EU and the US.

According to our philosophy, we only use natural fibers for our products such as wool, linen and cotton. A high quality fiber is essential for the final result. Most of our products are also manufactured from beginning to end in our ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified factory. This enables us to be environmental friendly and offer
high quality products.
We care about that no animal cruelty takes place in the production of the wool that we use. Because we
control the entire process ourselves we can guarantee that no occurs. This is where some farmers skin the
sheep around its tail to prevent insect bites. We also ensure that this is the situation our other products
that are made with Merino wool.
