In 2004, I registered a teeshirt brand, MAKI™ and have since sold designs as collections. I only ever produce a few garments at a time, because I like the idea of limited editions.
Maki means two things. It is a deliberate bastardisation of the Hebrew word, machir or makir, which means ‘Israelite’. Also, my family name, Mc Kell, is affectionately abbreviated to Macky by friends of my father, and I”m a Daddy’s girl, what can I say..heh! Combining those two sentiments, I crafted the name ‘Maki’.
