The initial idea of Makia was to bring easily approachable quality clothes to its customers, at fair prices.
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, we as a company, have reviewed our values and 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.
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.
