We design goods that inspire to live each day delightfully.
running in the rain. flip flops. spotted feathers. cookbooks (with lots of photographs). steamed custard. square wreaths. laughing out loud. stripes and dots. tongue-scorching hot sauce. freshly picked lavender. foldable bags. foggy mornings. pleats. wet clay. starry nights. crooked lines. books and blankets. white daisies. movies in the park. french macaroons. cigar boxes. dark roast coffee. lazy sundays. did we say coffee?
... and these are a few of our favorite things. And well, one more!
About the Founder
Viola Sutanto, Founder + Designer
I consider myself truly blessed to do what I love. everyday. Coming from a long line of entrepreneurs in my family, I always knew I wanted to own my own creative business. However, like many things in life, it took a few detours before MAIKA was born.
A business degree from Haas School of Business at the UC Berkeley, followed by a stint in banking, and a serendipitous series of events resulted in acceptance at the design program at the California College of the Arts. Upon graduation, I continued to hone my craft in the fashion industry and later, some of the premier boutique design firms in the Bay Area.
At the heart of every adventure I embark upon, I have always felt that an open mind and a sense of play and curiosity is crucial to self-growth. MAIKA represents that leap of faith: to always push the creative envelope; to represent thoughtful, evocative design that touches the heart and motivates a call to action.
