Balance for better
On March 8th 2019, we celebrate International Women’s Day, honoring the effort to build a more inclusive and equal world.
As a humanistic company, we believe that gender equality is good for our co-workers and our customers. We believe everyone has the right to be treated fairly and be given equal opportunities. We work together to close the gender gap and other inequalities. When we have the same opportunities to grow, regardless of gender or background, everyone wins. Balance for better.

PÅTÅR special edition:
Premium 100% Arabica coffee with a purpose
PÅTÅR special edition is a fresh and fruity medium roast made from high quality, single-origin coffee beans with notes of chocolate and vanilla. They are carefully hand-picked and selected in the White Nile region of Uganda, which provides the perfect setting for Arabica coffee plants. But PÅTÅR is also special for other reasons. To help support coffee farmers in Uganda economically, as well as more sustainable farming practices, IKEA has teamed up with a social business project that buys the beans directly from about 13,000 smallholder farmers. This means that while enjoying a cup of our PÅTÅR special edition coffee, you’re contributing to farmers getting better living conditions, and to growing the coffee beans in a responsible way.

PÅTÅR special edition:
Hand-picked berries that are building a future

The White Nile region is a mountainous part of Uganda that is blessed with fertile soils and an ideal climate for Arabica coffee plants. This is where we empower local farmers through improved farming techniques and increased business skills. Crop quality rises, demand and livelihoods grow. Taste the result: an extraordinary single-origin coffee with a unique story to tell.

Cotton grown with care

We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on price, quality, design, function or sustainability when choosing products for your home. That’s why all our cotton products, like this new quilt cover inspired by the Swedish 1960s called SOMMARASTER, are made from 100% cotton grown with care.

Crocheted. Conscious. Comfy.

Join us on our journey towards using only recycled and/or renewable plastics. OTTERÖN pouffe cover is made out of recycled plastic, meaning we consume less new raw materials and lower our environmental footprint. We also used a dyeing technique that needs less dyestuff and water. Use the pouffe to relax in the sun or as a foot stool in front of the TV – it’s light enough to move inside or outside when you need an extra seat.
