Four years ago when I started my company I named it Aiko after my late pet bunny. The word means 'love child' and it seemed appropriate for the time. A year later when I opened my Etsy shop I added Threads to the name and Aiko Threads was born. The name served me well over the past years, but now it's time to say goodbye to Aiko Threads and hello to Maiook.
Last year was a year of major growth and changes and my business became something completely different from the business I started back in 2012.
I am looking forward to the future as the name change also kicks off some other changes for my brand: new bag designs geared towards both men and women, new materials, production techniques and also this blog.
Maiook bags will still be designed and handmade from quality materials and with great care in my studio here in Slovenia.
I'm so excited and hopeful that you will continue to support me and be a part of this next stage of my adventure. And a huge thank you for helping me grow my business.
