As founder and CEO of Maya's Ideas, I am an environmentalist first, which for me means that I am doing everything that I can as an individual to make the planet livable for both people and animals alike. I am an advocate for recycling and reusing materials that will not put an additional strain on our environment by stripping the earth of it's natural resources. I do not use new wool, leather, silk, coral, etc. in my designs. If I come across a piece of 1940's vintage wool, silk, etc, fabric, I will use it and turn it into a brand new creation.
I always use old, vintage fabrics or organic and natural cottons.
I see our planet and our animals as one in the same. They need to be protected from harm, treated humanely and respected. I use 100% organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo, as well as recycled vintage materials in creating my clothing and accessories.
Please check back daily as I am adding new designs. I love nature and the environment, and I use this as constant inspiration. All items are one of a kind, artisan handcrafted from the finest materials.
10-20% of the profits I make go to local and global charities and organizations I am passionate about.
