Two companies from neighboring countries joined forces to create a collection inspired by the archipelago province of Åland and its long maritime history. Part of the proceedings of this collection will go to preserving the Baltic Sea through the John Nurminen Foundation.
The archipelago province of Åland lays in between Finland and Sweden in the Baltic Sea. This demilitarised and autonomous group of islands belongs to Finland, but is mostly Swedish speaking and related. The region has a long maritime history from an early trading post, to today’s hub for sailors and cruise ships alike. This is why it was only natural to share its history as an inspiration for the Makia & Tretorn – “Peace Islands” capsule collection. The collection is built around the theme of peaceful marine life and timeless sailing culture.
