We work together with Pure Waste textiles on our recycled products.
Pure Waste makes ecologically sustainable and premium quality 100% recycled fabrics and yarns. Their products are entirely made out of recycled textile waste and offer the consumer the same quality and comfort as those made out of virgin materials.
Pure Waste Textiles use only materials that would otherwise go to waste. Almost 3 million tons of cotton are wasted yearly in spinning yarns, weaving and cutting fabrics. That’s enough material to manufacture three T-shirts for every person on this planet. Up to 15 % of the cotton intended for clothing is wasted in the manufacturing process, and it takes over 11000 litres of fresh water to grow 1kg of cotton. This is where Pure Waste comes in.
Pure Waste collects textile waste from clothing factories and spinning/weaving mills. The waste is organized into different qualities and colors, and each are then opened back into fibers. The mechahically opened cotton waste can then be mixed with recycled polyester or viscose to reach the quality and functionality of fabric desired. After mixing, the fibers are spun into yarns, which can then be knitted and weaved to fabrics.
We use Pure Waste textiles each season for a wide range of products.

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.
