Excellent quality. This is the garment I will want to wear at the end of a long day. What could be more perfect with black leggings. Effortless.

I love this tunic which goes over everything and is very flattering on the 'wheat belly' area. Just so soft and stretchy. Again, great sleeves - especially for those of us with the dreaded upper arm thing... You just can't find this cut/style in shops.

Love this top. I wear it several times a week. Goes in the washing machine and no ironing required. Stretchy, soft, thick cotton. So well-made, as always.

This is fabulous. Soft enough to wear with nothing underneath - not scratchy at all. Beautifully sewn - as always. I love the sleeves which give a bit of a quirky look to the garment and make it a bit different.

About

Blooming where I'm planted

Scandinavian Artist Made Clothing

*HELLIN = Superlative form of hellä ( gentle -the gentlest). First-person singular indicative present form of helliä (I'm being gentle).*

*HELLIN clothes are made to become your wardrobe essentials.
Whether you are going hiking, figure skating, sailing, to a fancy dress-up ball or couch hibernating - they are always just right!

How do I make every day an adventure? Can it be done right here at home? Can I bloom where I'm planted?

I design and sew things. Clothes. Snuggly, soft, comfortable, clothes. Meant to last and be worn to shreds. Clothes you can jump in, ice skate in, mountain climb in. Or cuddle up with a good book and a cup of coffee. Or wear to bed on a chilly winter night. You can even wear one of the fancy gowns to a formal party - and eat the cake too, because your beautiful gowns will be made of comfortable fabric that conforms to your body and is comfortable even after dinner!
HELLIN pieces are meant to be your wardrobe essentials, like they are mine.

I'm not into "fashion" -and certainly not fast fashion. Comfort, functionality, aesthetics, clothes, yes - and also ethical and environmental sustainability.

You want to know who made your clothes? With HELLIN you know - I made them.

Do I have something of value to offer to others?

Faith. Beauty. Comfort. Joy. Hope.
I hope.

Welcome to HELLINsinua!

I'm a Finnish Visual Artist and work as a clothes designer and maker, painter and print designer.

I use natural fabrics which regulate body temperature, absorb moisture and repel odors. Merino wool is anti-bacterial and self-cleansing fiber when it reacts with the oxygen in the air, so by airing your wool garment overnight you can get multiple wears before washing. I love soft, thick organic cotton jersey for the comfort and gentle contouring support. Linen is a naturally eco-friendly with wonderful properties, like keeping you wonderfully cool in the summer.

HELLIN is a registered trademark.

HELLIN Clothes are designed and made in Finland, Helsinki. Fabrics are designed in Finland and produced in Portugal.

I want to create ethical, ecological and comfortable clothes that are gentle on you and the environment, a joy to look at and wear for years to come.

Shipping
For ready-to ship items I will ship in three days. Custom orders take 2-3 weeks, depending on whether I have the fabric or have to order it.

Refunds and Exchanges
I don't take responsibility for parcels damaged or lost in the mail - but I have shipped and received a lot of packets over the years and have found it's extremely rare for that to happen. If there is any problem though, please contact me and I'll see what I can do.

If you are not happy with the piece when you receive it, I offer a refund as a store credit when you send the item back to me. Modifications are also possible.
