A tiny Bit About Us:

I'm Suzi and I work as a team with my wonderful husband Jay to create each and every Maro Design, including our very popular Maro Mustaches! We are full on mustache aficionados! I handle all the design work and customer service, while Jay handles the computer and technical end of our company. He's quite brillant on that end, if I may say so myself! We spend countless hours in our "Design Factory" newly located in North Carolina creating one of a kind goodies day and night!

How Our "Maro Mustaches" Were Born:

For as long as I can remember, I have always had this crazy, strong desire or just flat-out obsession with creating things! I love, love to craft with very intricate and detailed materials and designs. I enjoy making things that are one of a kind and unique. I wanted the initial idea of our product to not only be exceptionally hand crafted and detailed, but very affordable. In January 2010, we started with just six basic designs. All very different, with truly original names and concepts behind each one. Just a few months later, we have well over 200 different styles of "Maro Designs" and some really great ORIGINAL pieces that can make any photo shoot fabulous! It's so fabulously reminiscent when you have sweet mementos that remind you of a period in your life that you wouldn't ever want to forget! I tend to zone out when I begin making things that can turn any situation into a fun-fest! We are constantly looking for inspiration for the humorous side of photographs. It's great to find items that no one would typically have or even think of (INSERT THE MRS. CYCLOPS HERE)! We have a craziness for truly original pieces!

How Maro Designs Was Started:

In the process of planning our wedding, we both knew that we wanted fun and really fabulous photos to remember our day. That was something we had agreed on from the start! I started sketching out designs and ideas and one after another, our "Maro Mustaches" were looking pretty amazing. So, we thought, "Why wouldn't others love them as well?" After only one year in business, Maro released well over 100,000 items all over the world and this business venture has turned out to be nothing less then amazing! We never thought our mustaches and other goodies would have turned out so incredible! Now, creeping up on just two years in business, we have delivered well over 125,000 items! Wild, right? Our designs were also featured in Instyle Mag, NY Mag, Bride to Be Magazine and countless blogs, websites and stores all over the world, which is such an honor! Our props have been the supplier of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Los Angeles two years in a row and are officially famously known! Maro's goods have been in the hands of some pretty famous gals, such as Zoe Saldana, Lauren Conrad, and Jamie King! It's truly rewarding to know that people love our products and use them at the gorgeous events in their lives. There's nothing better than that!

Maro's Concept:

We truly believe we will only sell things that we would personally use ourselves. Each idea is thought of with 100% Maro personality. That will never change! We pride ourselves on sketching out designs and being original!
