I live in a world that's ripe with enthusiasm, wanderlust and curiosity. I say "yes!" to impromptu road trips, exploring new cities, and taking the side roads. "Yes" to picnics on the beach, bike rides across the fields, and campfire coffee. That passion for adventure ignited a creative spark that led to the creation of my Maiook bag collection.

Bags are our trusty companions on life's many journeys. Our perpetual sidekicks for days at the park, afternoon coffee dates, and seeing our favourite bands play at the club. We wear them, use them, pack them, unpack them, toss them, and drop them.

That’s why I make bags the same way they used to make them: sturdy, dependable, and built to last. From making sketches, drafting patterns and making samples, every step in the design and construction of each Maiook bag is done by hand with a keen eye trained on the details. Each day in my workshop, I blend beauty with durability, and I'm confident that we don't have to sacrifice one for the other.

Maiook is my grand adventure and an outlet for exploring my creativity. My goal is to create products which remind you that adventures can be found everywhere. And if my bags inspire you to go out and experience something new, then I’m a happy camper.

Moj svet je svet navdušenja, raziskovanja in radovednosti. V svoji spontanosti se najraje odpravim na nepričakovan izlet, odkrivanje mest in raziskovanje stranskih poti. Obožujem piknike na plaži, kolesarjenje po zapuščenih poljih in kavo ob ognjišču. Moja strast do avantur je v meni vzbudila kreativno iskro, iz katere je nastala kolekcija torb Maiook.

Torbe so naše sopotnice, ko se podajamo na življenjske dogodivščine. So naše zveste pomočnice ko preživljamo dneve v parku, ko preživljamo popoldneve na kavi in ko se pozibavamo v ritmih naših najljubših bendov v skritih kleteh. Torbe nosimo, jih uporabljamo, napolnimo s svojimi najljubšimi stvarmi, jih razpakiramo, vihtimo in odložimo.

Zato so moje torbe narejene tako, kot so jih delali včasih: so vzdržljive, zanesljive in se dobro upirajo zobu časa. Vsaka Maiook torba nastane popolnoma ročno, z natančnio pozornostjo za detajle, pa naj gre za prvo skico, prvi izris kroja, ali testno obliko in vzorčen primer. V svoji šivalnici vsak dan iščem popolno kombinacijo lepote in vzdržljivosti z zavestjo, da ni nujno žrtvovati prvega na račun drugega.

Maiook je moja velika avantura in glavni ventil za sproščanje kreativnosti. Moj cilj je ustvarjanje produktov, ki nove lastnike opomnijo na to, da lahko dogodivščino poiščeš kjerkoli. Ko pa te moje torbe navdahnejo, da neustrašno doživiš nekaj popolnoma novega, se mi na obrazu izriše največji nasmeh.
