Makia Clothing: Finnish fashion with an eye for sustainability
Did you know that over 50% of the so-called fast fashion in our current fashion industry is not even worn for a year? All too often we wear cheap shirts and jumpers just a few times before we discard them, which is neither sustainable nor environmentally friendly. If every person on earth emulated this German pattern, the clothing industry's environmental impact on the planet would become quickly evident. Makia has recognised that solving this problem absolutely requires high-quality clothing made with robust materials. Fashion that will be timeless and look great for years instead of following short-lived trends and worn for as long as the stitching and fabrics last. We're all aware of this: just look at the favourite jumper or shirt you always grab even though you have 25 others to choose from or that one holy pair of jogging tights that you always wear when crashing on your couch or similar important events.
Standing the test of time
Makia fashion should stand the test of time. This leitmotif of the idealists behind the brand can be understood in many ways. On the one hand, contemporary Nordic clothing should meet the requirements of serious fashion and a sustainable lifestyle. On the other hand, the product design, materials selected and professional production should result in durable shirts, shoes and jackets that ultimately look good even when you wear them as often as you possibly can. Makia Clothing places the highest demands on itself in terms of usability and functionality of its pieces. After all, the best way to get people to wear their outfits for a long time is to make the clothes so good that people won't even want to throw them away.
Scandinavian design from the heart of the Finnish capital
Makia clothing is expressly made for every day and seeks to minimise the challenge of finding the right outfit every day. Jackets, shirts and shoes from this Scandinavian brand feature materials and styles that adapt to the elements of nature, the seasons with hot midsummer nights and cold polar winters, as well as the urban environment. In order to develop such fashion, it takes people who know what rain feels like on the skin, who spend their free time outside regardless of the weather, and who appreciate a walk in freezing temperatures as much as a walk around a lake on a warm summer's day. We too would like to offer you Scandinavian fashion for any everyday situation and every weather. In addition to the classic Makia shirts, we offer matching Makia parkas and jackets, coats, and Makia shoes.
Not only when it comes to clothing does Makia feel significantly different, of a higher quality and more sustainable. Its marketing is also breaking new ground: the Helsinki brand expressly encourages you to think carefully about whether you really need a new item of clothing and welcomes your answer whether it's “yes” or “no”!
Produced ethically and ecologically
Regardless of which item of clothing it is, the following is always true of Makia pieces: From rain jackets to boots, Makia Clothing attaches great importance to using sustainable materials sourced under fair conditions. Organic cotton, recycled cotton, organic wool, recycled polyester, lyocell and Ecovero viscose are the defining elements of Nordic fashion. Materials are recycled whenever possible. Every year, the aim is to increase the proportion of raw materials obtained fairly and ecologically, as well as the proportion of recycled materials. Currently 64% of Makia's pieces are made of ecologically preferred materials. The company also attaches great importance to appropriate care for its pieces. Simple care measures are included with every Makia boot, shirt and reversible jacket and help keep your Scandinavian fashion pieces beautiful longer.
