Celebrating friendship and the 10-year journey of Pelago, we are proud to be a part of their Pelago X Friends project.
Pelago is a Helsinki-based bicycle company creating timeless bicycles for the Nordic taste. In 2013 we did not just share close office spaces across the bay at Helsinki shipyards, we teamed up for a fellowship project. That resulted a video of a lonely bike looking for a rider. The project came around because the founders of both companies grew up skate- and snowboarding together during the 90’s, touring on raggedy vehicles from the Nordics to the Alps.
Maybe it’s living in the harsh Northern climate or the shared years in the harbour, but both brands have come to share a similar design philosophy respecting simple and functional goods that will last and take you through the everyday life.
This year, to celebrate our friendship and Pelago’s 10th birthday, we took part in their Pelago X Friends project. We took the classic Makia Raglan Jacket, printed a reflective emblem in the back and reprinted the Fellowship-ship black on black. You will be able to order a slightly customised Pelago based on the Hanko Street model. The collection also includes a black on black fellowship t-shirt and tote bag.
The full collection is exclusively available at Pelago webstore and Makia Flagship Store. You can also shop the t-shirt and totebag online at our webstore.
Makia has worked together with Ateneum Art Museum and Finnish National Gallery on a unisex clothing collection featuring the artwork of the Von Wright brothers. With this collaboration, we want to highlight the cultural significance of the Von Wright brothers’ art and introduce it to both new and old audiences, in an unseen context.
Something that many of us can relate to during the past months have been solitary walks around the city, with time to reflect on thoughts and sights usually bypassed by the sheer pace of today’s life.
The Lasipalatsi building complex, where our Flagship store is situated in the center of Helsinki, has a long history.
