This is how you slice it!

Evrything in your life should be special. Life is to short to be basic.

So when it’s time to slice the pizza or scoop the Ice Cream, you want to use the best tool in the drawer.

The meaning behind our name.

A question we are frequently asked is, “What does Minka mean?”
Our name was inspired by the ancient Japanese homes that artists, farmers and merchants lived in. These structures were skillfully crafted with hand tools using natural materials and recognized for their architectural beauty.
Later, we discovered that the word “minka” in Peruvian Indian means “working together”, which is especially fitting for our business. Since our conception, we have always strived to work with and support local suppliers, vendors, and artisans.  Working together with our peers to create a stronger creative community has, and will continue to be, an integral part of our business.
So the meaning of our name, Minka, has layers.
On the outside, it’s about aesthetics and the physical beauty of a design.
On the inside it’s all about our connection with the people that are creating those designs.
