about maquinky

Hi! I'm Maria, the face behind maquinky.

When buying gifts for expectant friends I struggled to find affordable items that either reflected their personality or mine. 


So I decided to do something about it and started making funky bibs. The amount of amazingly positive feedback I received made me realise that my hobby of sewing could actually become a reality and so in 2014 maquinky was born. Over the past 7 years I've evolved from making kids clothing to providing NZ with super comfy undies. My mum now refers to me as the "Undie Queen"!

The story behind the name....well I wanted something original that no one had already so I merged my name with my first nephews and the word monkey:


Maria + Quinn + Monkey = maquinky


Thanks for checking out maquinky & supporting New Zealand made!
