Makia, WeGotBeef and King’s Sex joined forces to support the well-being of the elderly people of Punavuori.
Makia has worked with legendary Helsinki based adult store King’s Sex and former nightclub Kings Kakadu, on a line of print shirts designed by WeGotBeef head honcho Sacha Remling. The adult store that is located in the same area of Punavuori where Makia was founded in, is owned by ex-gangster Tom Sjöberg, who is one of the last of the original local street kids.
