The name of my company Risako has its roots in old-fashioned Finnish language. It refers to a question ‘is it broken’. In Japan it is also used as a women’s name. For me Risako stands for recycled materials that I investigate and exploit: when working with used products and recycled materials I often raise a question ‘is it broken – Risako’?

Risako designs and manufactures the original recycled lace products. Thats why all products are unique. They all have a serial number inside.
