Established by Paola Masperi, Mayamiko is an ethical and sustainable womenswear and lifestyle brand, producing clothes, accessories and homeware, lovingly made in Malawi by a team of tailors, pattern cutters and seamstresses. Inspired by African artisanal traditions and prints, with ethical trading and sustainability at their core. Their collections are designed for the global modern woman, while giving ode to their birthplace through the use of traditional African techniques and local printed fabrics, locally referred to as Chitenje.
The Mayamiko brand strongly believes that ethical and sustainable production is the only acceptable way of producing. Mayamiko works in partnership with Mayamiko Trust, a charity set up by Paola in 2008 after her extensive travels in Africa.The project currently provides training in sewing and tailoring as well as financial and business skills to local, disadvantaged women.
We have created the LDC values in the form of our three symbols that explore the mindful, traceable and transparent processes and practices that our brands adhere to and stand for, to help you discover how the products are made and make conscious choices.
