It’s always nice to get home after a long day at the office and find a parcel waiting for you. Perhaps it’s something you’d forgotten you’d ordered, or perhaps a genuine gift or surprise. My delivery from recently launched brand Mayamada was neither of those, I knew it was coming, but that didn’t dampen my delight in receiving it at all.
Mayamada is a quirky Japanese inspired clothing brand set in a world of television parody. The t-shirts (and soon to be hoodies) are all there to represent a theme and tell a story. Mayamada “don’t do one offs”, all of the designs fit together influenced by pop culture, a quirky sense of humour and a little sprinkle of Japanese flavour.
Of the available designs I opted for Samurai Chef.
Samurai Chef is, well, a chef who judges dishes by attacking them with his samurai sword. Excellent.
You can see a sneak preview of some of the other designs over on the Mayamada blog.
The attention to detail in the packaging is great too. Yes it’s not unusual to have clothes orders delivered wrapped in quality tissue paper, but when it’s hand stamped with genuine ink imported from Japan – then you know these guys know what they’re doing. It really is the little things that can make the difference, and Mayamada have excelled in this aspect.
They also lovingly threw a couple of badges – “one for me and one for a friend”. I mean, who doesn’t like badges! If you’d like to proudly wear one of my Mayamada pins, then leave a comment below and I’ll sort out sending it over to you. Alternatively place an order over here and you’re bound to get a couple in your delivery (this is the only sure fire way of collecting them all as the badges are specific to which clothing design you order!).
There’s also a fab letter included, welcoming you to the brand. I won’t spoil all the secrets though, if you want to know what it says you’ll have to place an order and see for yourself!
Mayamada are all over the relevant social media sites too – keep in touch with them on both Facebook and Twitter for all the latest info.
