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.
2020 marks the 75-year anniversary of Tove Jansson publishing her first Moomin novel. To celebrate this Moomin Characters Ltd is launching the #OURSEA campaign in collaboration with the John Nurminen Foundation.
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.
Ivar Fougstedt was one of the original founding members of Makia along with Joni Malmi and Jussi Oksanen. Ivar spent a few days in his local neighbourhood in Tokyo with photographer Antti Rastivo.
