Two companies from neighboring countries joined forces to create a collection inspired by the archipelago province of Åland and its long maritime history.
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, inspired by the Tretorn Wings collection originally launched in the 60’s for sailing, with accompanying products great for life on the sea.
Watch Lead Designer Johanna Gartmyr from Tretorn discuss the inspiration behind the Tretorn x Makia ‘Peace Islands’ collection.
Part of the proceedings of this collection will go to preserving the Baltic Sea through the John Nurminen Foundation. The target of the foundation’s projects is to bring about a visible improvement in the condition of the Baltic Sea, by reducing the nutrient load of the sea.
Jussi Oksanen is one of the original founding members of Makia, as well as one of the greats when it comes to freestyle snowboarding. We had a chat with Jussi about his life and career after Makia.
Makia, WeGotBeef and King’s Sex joined forces to support the well-being of the elderly people of Punavuori.
The Ateneum is Finland’s best-known art museum and the home of Finnish art. Makia is proud to have Ateneum prepare a very special exhibition into their Fokus Gallery. It displays the artwork behind our MAKIA X Von Wright collaboration.
