Anaak derives its name from the Filipino dialect Tagalog’s word for “child”. A term of endearment bestowed upon founder and designer Marissa Maximo by her mother. It is also perfectly evocative of the feeling her line exudes—just like a child, joyfully open, unabashedly carefree and with a permanent sense of wide-eyed wonder. Maximo has a studied background in painting and textile design and many years of experience in fashion. A solo trip to a secluded corner of India’s southern coast afforded her the opportunity to slow down and start thinking about a way to weave her travels and love for artisans into a more tangible and intimate story. And thus began the dream of Anaak.
