The word Makaua in the ancient Náhuatl language has two meanings: “from hand to hand” or “the act of giving a hand”.
Makaua is a company of artisans, producers, and designers, working together to create unique and useful products.
All of their pieces are handmade, using a technique that has been passed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years.
Makaua believes there is nothing as special as a handmade product, which represents a story and the person who made it.
By adding the element of modern design, the brand strives to create contemporary pieces that represent and communicate this merger of tradition and timeless simplicity.
