The name of the shop MARU comes from a Japanese word meaning circle. In Japan, the shape of the circle also means correct or right. When a student in Japan gets an answer right, the teacher will put a circle around the answer, a "maru". Here at MARU we wish to present only products representing the highest standard of Japanese quality and design to our customers. We are also careful to select products well suited for a Scandinavian and European lifestyle. Only products that meet these criterias have found their way to our shop and as you see we have put a circle around them "MARU approved".
