Nordic mindset

The scarce commodities have shaped the ingenuity of Nordic people for ages. If you only have so much to work with, you need simple designs that do the job and last their users for generations. This combination of sustainability and durability has been present in Finnish design and continues to affect our straightforward mindset.

Since the first electric bulb of the Nordic countries was switched on at the Finlayson weaving hall in 1882, Finnish household products like Fiskars scissors, Aalto furniture, and Marimekko textiles have become synonymous with everyday functional design. Humane products that do not shout ideologies but leave in up to the user to become personal. Functionality inspired by the weather and our surroundings, where the city blends into nature, land into the sea.

No-sales policy

The initial idea of Makia was to make clothing to stand the test of time, equally in quality and over trends, to become a part of our everyday lives. We thrive to make our designs as usable and functional as possible, no-nonsense clothing that you won’t want to throw away

As any production house starting from nothing, we’ve had our share of challenges along the way. Over the years, the quality of our garments has improved hand-in-hand with our production processes and to keep on doing so, a few years ago, we as a company decided to end all discounted pricing of Makia goods.

This will not only help keep our pricing at a level where we can keep producing our clothes ethically and ecologically, but will also reinforce our philosophy of producing quality clothes, to last over seasonal trends for years to come.

Sustainability

Over the past years, we have worked on becoming more transparent about how we communicate our sustainability actions. Together with Finnish company Ask Kauko we have launched an impact report and set our sustainability goals on utilizing 75% environmentally preferred materials by 2025. We believe in making realistic and permanent changes that lead towards a less environmentally harmful future. Last year we changed most of our synthetic fabrics into recycled polyester, as well as opted to use organic over traditional cotton. Most importantly, we wish to encourage consumers to acknowledge the lifespan of the usage of their garments.

Our goal is to minimise the problem of getting dressed appropriately, so you’ll have time to worry about the bigger picture. Whether it means waking up to a hectic routine with kids, an overwhelming day at work, or just plain harsh weather.

Through the rough seas.
