In the late 1960s, jeans were becoming increasingly popular among both men and women making unisex clothing more relevant than ever before. A supporter of anonymity in design, Annika Rimala set out to create functional everyday clothes that suited everyone, regardless of age, size or gender.
The classic Tasaraita designs are still beloved by people all around the world today.
