The Island Camo pattern was created from nautical charts of the island archipelago surrounding Helsinki’s coastal area.
Our Island Camo print is created from the navigational maps of the Helsinki Archipelago. These islands are a rocky legacy from the post-glacial rebound of the last ice age. Navigating through this labyrinth-like maze of islands is hazardous, which is why the islands are dotted with lighthouses and other navigational marks.
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.
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.
