At the end of January, we were contacted by Carol-Liis, an Estonian student studying in the UK. She had found Mithio while searching for ideas and inspiration for her course work – “The Forager”, a visual blog dedicated to Nordic fashion and lifestyle trends. It was born out of the author’s love for her home country in Northern Europe and fascination with visual arts, organic textures and the world of Nordic design. The Forager tells stories using beautiful visuals – it is a place where fashion meets rugged wilderness. Mithio’s knitwear is in tune with this vision of the Northern way of life.
The results of the February photoshoot are on out website in LOOKBOOK 2017 February. Soon a video of the photoshoot will be added for viewing. You can also follow the blog in Instragram at foragerjournal and on the website https://foragerjournal.com/.
Despite the cold weather, the second part of the photo shooting of Mithio´s 2016/2017 winter collection took place on Tuesday, December 6. For the location this time we chose the limestone west coast of the Pakri peninsula. Quite a few springs open onto the steep limestone pavement, which, at this time of year, were not yet completely frozen. We had not had a photo shoot so late in the season before – the weather was icy and windy, but the models Hanne-Loore and Karl-Thomas were coping bravely. The freezing cold weather put our photographer Sohvi’s fingers to the test as well. Pakri peninsula inspired us with its round stones, polished by water on the beach, as well as with the textures and colours of the large, massive limestone formations.
In the middle of the peninsula we found some wild apple trees with a lot of red-cheeked apples still hanging from the branches. For a moment, even the sun came out from behind the clouds, which can be seen in some photos.
Despite the rainy weather the photoshoot of Mithio´s new fall-winter 2016 collection took place on Monday, the 29th of August. This time we chose two different locations – the park of Von Glehn with its mysterious velvety greenery, and a quiet suburbian sidestreet of Wismari in the center of Tallinn.
It had been raining incessantly during the photoshoot of the webstore styles, but it stopped just before we were about to begin in the park of Von Glehn. The rain had covered the forest in deep green velvet shades , and coloured some naughty raindrops on a gray cardigan sleeve.
A black cat that was sitting at an open window in the alley, didn´t mind that we were there. At first it just sat there, but then it lay down and quietly watched as the model kept changing the poses.
The first part of the photoshoot can be seen in our Lookbook https://www.mithio.com/en/lookbook/ page.
The next session will take place at the end of October when the weather should be really autumnal and crisp.
Just the right time to get a warm sweater.

A knitwear collection for men and women was founded in 2009 under the trademark of Mithio. Mithio released their first knitwear collection for autumn-winter 2010/11 season. Mithio´s sweaters are indispensable companions in our northern climate.
Every new collection contains different knittypes and patterns for both men and women. Everyone can find it´s favorite – a thick and soft cableknit sweater or a warm cardigan for a cold “after ski” long winter night, or a thinner woolmix jacket for everyday´s officework.
Mithio brand´s creator and designer Tiia Orgna chooses inspiring new designs for each season, which reflect in many various color combinations.
The unifying features for this winter are filigree geometric patterns – triangular shape of butterfly motif, diagonal embossed herringbone weaving in different versions and large rustic cables. Nevertheless, each season has also favourite styles from the previous collections, but the repetition of these patterns is always in a new color combination.
For Mithio the most important is the implementation of the product, because our customers appreciate the value of good design and quality, as well as the perfect fit and the easy wash & care, which is ensured with excellent Italian yarns. All our sweaters are knitted at the best knitters in Lithuania, where the high quality and a fair price are worth the final result.
You will find Mithio´s knitwear in Tallinn department store.

The 19th St Martin’s Day Fair took place from the 5th to 8th of November 2015 in Tallinn, Saku Arena.
Mithio participated in the fair for the fourth time.
This time we offered a very wide range of various men´s and women´s sweaters, a total of nearly 40 different models in around 60 different color or pattern combinations. Every season our collection includes some popular styles from previous collections, but they come always in new color combinations.
It was a great joy to see familiar faces from last times, who came to see our new styles to try and buy.
We were very pleased to note that there is a growing loyal fanclub for Mithio brand.
See you on the 20th jubilee of St. Martin’s Day Fair next year in 2016 !

The photoshoot of Mithio´s new fall-winter 2015 collection took place on Tuesday, the 25th of August. Completely by chance it was exactly the same date as the previous year. We chose the old mine of Rummu for the surreal background landscape. The weather was quite the opposite of the previous year – it was quite hot, around 25+ degrees and the sun was shining in a cloudless sky. You can see the end result towards the end of September, when we add lookbook photos and change the style´s photos of online shop.
Today we discovered from the depths of the internet pictures of the President of the Republic of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, wearing Mithio´s autumn / winter 2011-12 collection sweater. Fits perfectly and a joy to look at! More pictures here.
Mithio´s first project was to design and produce the official representative clothing set for the Latvian Olympic Team for the Vancouver Olympics in 2010. It was a big subscription of a 130-member Olympic team.
Latvian Olympic Committee as a client, was extremely conscious and demanding about the representative clothing, about the quality and as well as technical solutions – the basic vision, quality, materials and colors. The goal was to create a unique and original clothes for the Latvian Olympic team, and differentiate themselves from the mass production by emphasizing the Latvian national diversity, colors and national motifs.
Concept and strategy
As previously mentioned, the task was to create unique and original clothes for the Latvian Olympic team, emphasizing in particular the Latvian national diversity and national motifs. The entire set of clothing was designed and made under Mithio´s brand. During the work we combined various national elements, used several of them in a combination with geometric elements on the modern high-tech fabrics.
Olympic Collection consisted of nine garments: long coat with wadding, wadded ski jacket and trousers, casual trousers, knitted sweater and a long zip cardigan, knitted scarf, a hat and ski gloves. Coats, jacket and trousers are manufactured with seam-sealing technology. On the internal and external sides of the trousers, we have used the printed decorative elements.

Mithio´s 2010-2011 season collection is inspired by the northern simplicity and a modest nature, creating modern, functional products, each with a small part of its own meaning. The choice of patterns, geometric motifs is inspired by various small miniature objects – gloves and wool socks, hand-woven belts and the endless motifs of Kihnu Troi sweaters. Nearly every character has its own meaning and Mithio brings these characters back into everyday wear.
Using the latest technologies, we are able to offer garments that are comfortable, but with the same quality characteristics than traditional wool sweaters. Selected motives of our products are made either as hand embroidery, machine embroidery, woven or printed. The choice of the motifs and the fulfillment will depend on each particular style, based on the material used and by selecting the best solution.
