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.
Control is a pioneering Helsinki based skateboard collective from the 90’s, later forming into a streetwear brand. For this spring, Makia and CTRL are bringing back the labels’ iconic styles in the form of the ‘Powerhouse’ capsule collection.
We work together with Pure Waste textiles on our recycled products.
