Maiyet ethical clothing draws inspiration from a diversity of sources: ethnic fabrics, artisanal sewing techniqes, and of course, nature, to name a few.
The brainchild of former fashion consultant Kristy Caylor and human rights lawyer Paul Van Zyl, Maiyet’s fashion forward designs almost belie its ethical roots.
The New York based company deploys training programs globally to promote sustainability in communities from Indonesia to Italy, and has also partnered with Nest, an independent nonprofit organisation dedicated to training and developing artisan businesses to promote entrepreneurship, prosperity and dignity in places that need it most.
Using only the finest textiles, beautifully printed and finished fabrics are a key feature of Maiyet’s designs, all of which are sourced and produced in accordance with ethical values.
The brand only launched last year, but Maiyet is certainly one Eluxe will be following in future collections.
