Elina Mavrommati + Andie Skaraki
Meraki is the greek word that describes the soul, creativity or love put into something; the essence of yourself in your work. Natural elements, shapes and colours come together to form a simple, yet special design. All products are made from 100% premium quality leather and are well crafted in order to create a unique, timeless product.
Meraki bags are exclusively produced in 150 pieces, individualised by serial number and handcrafted one by one, ethically and responsibly, in a small family owned workshop in Greece.
Elina Mavrommati and Andie Skarakaki designers and founders of Meraki, started their brand as an answer to the need for pure design and ambition to create timelessly beautiful products. Having a common background in education, studying architecture and museology, they came together to create Meraki as a way to express themselves.
Design to them is a challenge that offers the opportunity to change the way people view the world and themselves. The specific difficulty and challenge of designing each limited edition Meraki bag – an item both functional and at the same time a fetish – is to gracefully balance between lure and rationality.
