Viola Sutanto

Close your eyes and think of all your favorite things. Do you see that slideshow of everything that makes you happy? Pleats, polka dots and freshly picked lavender are few of the things Viola sees fluttering across her eyelids.

It’s this vivid excitement about the world around her that makes her gift-wrap and home accessories line so universally appealing — that, and the ingenious design elements that go into every single product. Reusable wrapping paper, generous totes and two-in-one iPad cases, Viola’s eco-friendly vision for the objects that we use every day is both pretty and practical. Now when we close our eyes, MAIKA products are in the mix too.

“I actually have a business background, and stumbled upon design early on in my banking days. I quit my job, went to art school and never looked back.”
