Pia & Paula (or Pia ja Paula in Finnish) was a women’s wear label started in the early 1970s that belonged to the Finnish textile company Scantex Oy. Pia Karjalainen and Paula Häkkinen designed the prints as well as the garments. Paula left the company after a short while, whilst Pia continued to design women’s wear including maternity wear as well as baby clothes until about 2003. Thanks to Sini Karjalainen for her helpful comments.
