MARKAS is a sustainable base layer brand for women made from 100% super fine merino wool, knitted in Denmark. The ordinary made extraordinary well.
We aim to create timeless and durable designs that never go out of fashion and will last you for many years.
MARKAS was founded by Ditte Auguste Mørkholt to create garments of high quality merino wool and with care for the environment. The merino wool is chosen for its textures and quality, and with respect for the animals.
With high quality wool and a timeless design, we aim to create garments that will last you through many years, making you feel and look good.
Ditte's grandmother Grethe, worked as a wool merchant. The wool merchants sold their quality wool from door to door, fibers that had to be long and carded with the right method, making them more durable. Grethe never compromised on quality, and she is the inspiration behind MARKAS, and that is how "Grethe Favorite Tee" has gotten its name.
Working exclusively with the highest quality merino wool, MARKAS creates base layers for women’s everyday life, a wool merchant for our times. We believe that the combination of quality, care and aesthetics is the needed combination for a women’s luxury base layer brand that everyone can afford.
