Here at MAiK, we’re passionate about where our products come from and who made them. It all started in 2015, when Cat Thorogood decided she wanted to create great looking graphic pieces that are sustainably sourced and ethically produced.
She decided that it was important to control every aspect of our production from sourcing ethical fabric to ensuring our wood came from a sustainable source. After months of researching, we found a selection of makers that supported their local community, looked after the planet and so we launched our first collection.
Our cushions and pouches are made by unemployed Women’s social enterprise in East London.
MAiK; An old Scottish term meaning equal.
MAiK's first home was Brixton, South West London and at the end of 2016 we moved to Edinburgh. We have a light and airy studio in Margaret's House on London Road where we design and create our original products.
Fresh, clean geometric patterns are at the core of MAiK products. All of our exclusive prints are designed in-house. Each item is carefully conceived and developed in our studio before being sent to the printers and makers we work with. Our products, prints and colours are designed to simply ‘work’ with your home or lifestyle.
Designer and founder Cat was born and raised in Scotland before moving to London in 2001 to study at Camberwell College of Arts.
