Mithio – it is the ancient mythical mystery that has inspired us to create something unique, bringing back beautiful modern folk art throughout its everyday use. Diving into nature and traditions of the people of the world, is interesting as a journey of discovery into the past.
Mithio`s unique design is inspired by Baltic, Nordic and Scandinavian national traditions. We take the example of the old patterns of ethnic and other elements by mixing them to create a collection of functional clothing for everyday life, using the latest clothing technologies. The result is a pattern of good quality and international elements adorned in everyday wearable clothing.
The founder of Mithio and the designer is Tiia Orgna. Tiia has over 20 years of experience in various garment manufacturing companies. For the last 11 years, before the establishment of Mithio, she was the chief designer at Ilves Extra. She helped to create one of Estonia’s best-known leisure and sports brand of ISC and was also responsible for the technical development of the product. She has also been involved with several Estonian Olympic team competition clothing designs. In 2008, Tiia was the nominee for the Golden Needle Fashion Award of Estonia for a long-term operation of the ISC. In addition, the company ATLM Design Ltd and Mithio brand were the first to succeed in the Latvian Olympic team clothing design and were the supplier of official representative team clothes for Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games.
“Good luck, health, energy and the power of granting signs, old legends and the myths are the messages we want to bring back into our daily lives. Combining centuries-old traditions, knowledge and beliefs of today’s latest technologies one can meet the contemporary product, which has a connection to the place from where we originate. Adding to this our northern modest nature, the result is a restrained tone-on-tone color combinations for everyday wearable cozy knits. ”
