“I grew up surrounded by the sea, surf, sports and nature, which became my lifestyle. One day, my brother named his young dog “Maui” which inspired me to choose the name of my newborn brand. With summer and paradisiac islands in mind, I 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, I 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.
After a special trip to Brazil, that lasted more than 1 year, I was inspired by the Brazilian biodiversity, fauna and flora, by the shapes and exotic colours of the jungle then i started design all the illustrations for creating the complex patterns to the brand Mauiki”.
