1) Literal Sanskrit translation: great seer, guru
2) Great vision in clothing

Maharishi was founded by Hardy Blechman in 1994 with the vision to create environmentally conscious, durable, utilitarian clothing. Maharishi collections have always included hemp, organic cottons and upcycled military clothing, reflecting a respect for nature whilst utilising the latest technology. Collections explore the dualistic nature of the universe, often expressed through blending Eastern and Western artworks and silhouettes, combining hi-vis or reflective with camouflage patterns and taking a pacifist approach to military-grade design.

Maharishi’s use of camouflage aims to detach disruptive patterns from their military associations, reclaiming the symbolic value away from war and promoting their true roots in nature, and development by artists.
