maramea brand name: childhood memories
brand name & childhood memories
A lot of people ask us where the word maramea comes from. They assume maramea is one word and that is a fanciful word we made up. But it actually has its origin in childhood memories.
The term mara came from the Latin word Samara and was chosen because it reminded both of us of childhood memories - sticking maple seeds on our noses while playing. The maple seed is a symbol of happiness and life for us and formed the inspiration for the mara mea logo. The word mea is Latin and means ”My Love”, and coincides with the company’s overall philosophy of promoting and reinforcing motherly love.
