Ethical and sustainable womenswear lovingly made in Malawi by our team of tailors, pattern cutters and seamstresses supporting local disadvantaged women into stable work.
Established by Paola Masperi, Mayamiko The Label is an ethical and sustainable woman's wear and lifestyle brand, producing clothes, accessories and homeware, lovingly made in Malawi by our team of tailors, pattern cutters and seamstresses. Their collections are inspired by African artisanal traditions and prints, with ethical trading and sustainability at our core. Our 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.
They strongly believe 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.
