A Finnish designer and tailoress, Riikka Heiskanen has degrees in dressmaking and tailoring and 6 years of work experience in a professional theater. She founded the brand Wriic’s during her studies, and the first circus costumes for professional use were made in 2007. From there her brand has grown up from a small side business to a company which produces approximately 100 costumes in a year.

Wriic’s unique designs are based on the artist’s wishes and ideas, to fit perfectly with their character and performance. All the costumes are handmade in Finland. The main inspiration behind Wriic’s is a drive to support the work of artists and give memorable experience to the audience from show to show.
