Hi! I'm Maria, the face behind maquinky.
When buying gifts for expectant friends, I struggled to find affordable
items that reflected either 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 sewing hobby 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"!
As for the story behind the name . . . well you could say I wanted
something original that no one had already. So I merged my name
with my first nephew’s and the word monkey:
Maria + Quinn + Monkey = maquinky
Thanks for checking out maquinky and for supporting New Zealand
