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.
We live in a world where conflicts get more visibility than peace. When conflicts feel distant, the importance of peace can easily be forgotten.
Finland is known as ‘land of a thousand lakes’ and from its unique Archipelago Sea that contains arguably the largest archipelago in the world by the number of islands. Together with Keep the Archipelago Tidy Association we created a small collection of everyday essentials to promote the wellbeing of our coastal and lake areas.
For the second and final part of our collaboration with the Moomins, we got inspired by the easily relatable and curious character of Moominpappa. Makia × Moomin Part 2/2 out now.
