Delightful Everyday Goods
"MAIKA started with a craving for a better bag. The founder, Viola, found herself needing a bag that could seamlessly take her through her busy life as a working professional, multi-tasking mom, and avid athlete. With over four decades of family experience in the luxury bag business, Viola set out to create her perfect bag. It had to fit her lifestyle and support her belief in sustainable materials and processes. Combining her love of design, colors, patterns and textiles, MAIKA was founded in 2014 with the iconic Carryall Tote. MAIKA goods are made with sturdy recycled canvas, eco-friendly pigments and vegan leather. All of the designs are hand-drawn in Emeryille, CA and hand-printed with love. MAIKA is also inspired by thoughtful organizations that provide simple solutions for every day. Each quarter they select a charity or organization that speaks to their hearts; and dedicate 1% of all their proceeds to that cause. They believe every thoughtful deed counts, and they hope you will join them in this journey of paying it forward."
