Established by Paola Masperi, Mayamiko is a responsible womenswear and lifestyle brand, lovingly created by the women who are at the heart of their social enterprise, with ethics and sustainability at its core.
Each Mayamiko dress has its own unique story. Made with hand-picked materials from the local fabric market, cut and sewn with love in their solar-powered workshop in Malawi, and packaged with care by Mail Out, a wonderful social enterprise that supports humans with learning difficulties.
Mini, midi or maxi, wrap or kaftan, beach or work, we have designed a selection of evergreen styles that you will love and cherish for many years. Mayamiko collections are cross-seasonal, designed for the global woman and inspired by the indigenous artisans located where the products are made.
Started in Malawi, the fashion garments and accessories give ode to their birthplace through the use of traditional African techniques and locally sourced fabrics referred to as 'chitenje'.
The brand’s vision is to bring you a growing selection of carefully crafted pieces, made by handpicked artisans all over the globe. You can choose from plant died jewellery from Sri Lanka, hand-knitted fair trade Peruvian hats and up-cycled silk from Italy.
The brand is dedicated to putting people and the planet at the heart of their process and are here to prove that shopping ethically and sustainably does not compromise on quality or design, but rather, adds to its value, while empowering all those along its production lifecycle.
