Maharishi literally translated means great seer, started in 1994 with the vision to create environmentally sound, fair-trade produced, long-lasting, high-quality, utilitarian clothing. The collection has always included hemp and natural fibers, organic cottons and recycled military clothing. Despite great commercial growth and a high media profile, maharishi remains a privately owned company, with its ethos and identity truly intact. Blechman’s recent collections have expanded on the maharishi ethos by introducing themes connected with a deep concern for environmental issues such as the exploration of melting Polar Ice, Desert Reform, ‘The Rising Seas’ which resulted in a regenerated earth ‘The Natural Order’. All these themes call for a controlled approach to the use of the world’s natural resources and further promote the responsibility of the individual in its protection. maharishi prides itself on gaining a respected reputation for not conforming to mainstream fashion trends, placing emphasis on its own points of inspiration and the natural progression of excellent quality, perfect fit and original design. The company continues to develop and expand with a positive attitude, open mind and unique approach, firmly positioning it as one of the most influential and progressive international brands around.
