Maika is short for Maria del Carmen. My mother.
After she passed in 2009, I went through all of her past pictures, and realized that it was during that time as Maika, before marriage and kids, that she was most carefree and full of life.

This is the essence I pull from when I created this business. I was very close to my mother. I like to think she continues to be with me in spirit.
