We come from a city built on a peninsula on the Baltic Sea, facing every kind of weather. Nevertheless, we think this shouldn’t take its toll on our composure.
This is why our summer collection offers a wide array of products, from longer weatherproof coats to lighter summer garments, combining Nordic functionality with contemporary urban aesthetics.
The ever-changing seasons affect our daily routines, as the blistering cold winter changes into summer with midnight sun. Living amongst these elements gives our designers the first-hand know-how, as their experiences transition to the drawing board. Every detail carefully thought out, while a new design develops from an idea into a finished product.
Over time, climate and harsh conditions have shaped nordic life into pursuing functional and straightforward design. The initial idea of Makia was to bring timeless, durable, and functional clothing for our customers at fair prices and beyond trends. Read more about our design team and design process.

Rasmus Tikkanen is a Helsinki-based artist and a friend, who has collaborated with us with a series of print designs. Rasmus also hosted the Makia x Tretorn launch party in August at the old military island of Vallisaari in Helsinki where he has his studio. We interviewed Rasmus about his career as an artist, his inspirations, style and love for Helsinki.
