I am going to be honest; I wasn’t super familiar with Maiyet before this post. Yes, I had checked out the previous collection (which also happened to be the label’s first), but that was it. But I decided to branch out while checking out the Paris Fashion Week shows…
I did a little digging and I was super excited to discover that Maiyet is more than your average label. Paul van Zyl and Kristy Caylor, the individuals behind the label, travelled the world scouting for unique and beautiful artisanal crafts. They then work with the artisans to employ their skill in the designs. Creating an opportunity to maximize prosperity from these crafts. (Read more about it HERE)
Pretty cool, right?
