With a keen interest in emotionally durable design and sustainability, Essi Peuhkuri is an accessory designer based in Plymouth, United Kingdom.

During the time when she was pursuing her MA in Disruptive Design in Plymouth College of Art, Peuhkuri had always been focused on the relationship between a consumer and a product and the ways in which design could support long-lasting companionships.

Nowadays, her interest falls on making sustainable and ethical fashion more accessible to everyday consumers and finding ways of creating luxury items while using more sustainable materials. With attention to detail and innovation, Peuhkuri has adapted her design and manufacturing processes in order to minimalize the amount of waste created, while still maintaining a playful twist on form and function in order to encourage a personal connection between products and their owners.
