Our Story

The Picnic Day was founded in 2021 as a side business by a New York mom Mai Akdeniz in her bedroom. With her background as a patternmaker, Mai would long to create colorful and effortless clothes to dress families while having mother earth and people's wellbeing on mind.

As the winner of Sustainable Fashion Design Contest held in New York in 2021, Mai is committed to making her "sustainable" brand a playful thing: with up-cycled pieces made with fabric scraps, zero waste techniques, and organic cotton garments with fun graphics, the possibility is limitless!

Whether it's an ordinary day in a park, a mini vacation, or the first day in school, The Picnic Day will bring smiles to everyone and make great memories even better! 

Supported by local families and SNS fans, The Picnic Day became Mai's full time job soon after.
