Maraya Cigar promotes the enjoyment of cigar smoking as an acceptable pleasure, rather than being dogged in a downward spiral by negative social stigma. We want to enjoy cigars when and where we please, at appropriate times and in appropriate places without being forced from public into smoking rooms. One of MARAYA’s founding principles is consideration of others by not afflicting our desire to smoke on another’s desire not to be surrounded by second-hand smoke. In turn, cigar enthusiasts are not to be looked upon as second-class citizens, but as those who simply enjoy relaxing from time to time with a fine, quality cigar. We celebrate the craft of cigar-making as an artisinal form of appreciation — today and for continued generations — and encourage the freedom to continue making great cigars and connecting with the natural instinct of pursuing their enjoyment.
