This venture was inspired by my love of ‘paper’ and other niffty, hip, kitschy stuff. I opened a shop in Nairobi, Yaya centre. It was exciting and demanding, as I still kept my other job (Academy). A lot of time and preps went into getting it started. The final product was amazing.
Thanks to Almudin for designing this logo for me. It was perfect for the idea. And thanks to the others that helped me to get this venture started and supported me through the different fairs, etc. Perhaps one day, there will be a Maya Papaya again.
The name was inspired by my real Maya, who is 5 years old. She is a gem.
Momijis are super cool. You can hide a secret under them.
Oddly enough they are not made in Japan, but the UK.
