Celebrating friendship and the 10-year journey of Pelago, we are proud to be a part of their Pelago X Friends project.
Pelago is a Helsinki-based bicycle company creating timeless bicycles for the Nordic taste. In 2013 we did not just share close office spaces across the bay at Helsinki shipyards, we teamed up for a fellowship project. That resulted a video of a lonely bike looking for a rider. The project came around because the founders of both companies grew up skate- and snowboarding together during the 90’s, touring on raggedy vehicles from the Nordics to the Alps.
Maybe it’s living in the harsh Northern climate or the shared years in the harbour, but both brands have come to share a similar design philosophy respecting simple and functional goods that will last and take you through the everyday life.
This year, to celebrate our friendship and Pelago’s 10th birthday, we took part in their Pelago X Friends project. We took the classic Makia Raglan Jacket, printed a reflective emblem in the back and reprinted the Fellowship-ship black on black. You will be able to order a slightly customised Pelago based on the Hanko Street model. The collection also includes a black on black fellowship t-shirt and tote bag.
The full collection is exclusively available at Pelago webstore and Makia Flagship Store. You can also shop the t-shirt and totebag online at our webstore.
Stylist Shadi Razavi is our longtime friend, colleague, and styling most of the Makia catalogue shoots for almost a decade now. In this edition of Makia & Friends, she briefly shares some of her working methods and views on today’s fashion.
Elina might be smaller in size but her relentless work ethic and humane approach for design have made her a giant powerhouse in our design department. Combining timeless style into functional solutions make her designs top acquired items from season to season.
With one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year in progress, amidst all the consuming hysteria, we want to emphasize the responsibility for sustainability that lies within all of us. This is why we encourage our customers to take a moment and ask themselves – “Do I really need this product?”
