“Surrounded by the sea, surf, sports and nature which became a lifestyle, one day, her brother named his young dog “Maui” inspiring to choose the name of our newborn brand. With summer and paradisiac islands in mind, then added a “K” and an “I” to give it a different and exotic touch. Mauiki was born, forever connected to the sea, the most abundant and enigmatic element of our Planet Earth. As a curiosity, we later found out that ”Mauiki’’ is also the name of one of the Cook’s Islands, located on the South of Pacific Ocean, in the same latitude as Hawaii and close to New Zealand. Mauiki, or Mauke in other languages, was once known as ‘‘Akatokamanava’’ meaning ‘’where my heart can rest’’. It is also one of the three neighbour islands of Nga, Pu and Toru. Extraordinarily beautiful, Mauiki is a garden island, abundant in wildflowers. Mauiki is also considered a fire god by the locals.
