Wednesday Craving: Maiyet

This is truly a line to love. New-to-me luxury brand, Maiyet, is based out of New York City and was founded by human rights lawyer Paul van Zyl with the sole purpose of celebrating and supporting local artisans from Kenya, India, Peru and Colombia. Maiyet pieces are beautiful creations - hand printed dresses, exquisite leather accessories and gold plated and horn jewelry pieces. The traditional craftsmanship and more modern designs combine to create one truly exceptional line. My favorite piece? This stunning, structured leather shopper in gray suede and leather. And guess what? They just recently opened their first storefront in Soho (on Crosby Street.) Learn more about Maiyet's Varanasi Project - a recent partnership between the brand and Nest to revive the 500-year old weaving tradition in Varanasi, India - here and shop the collection here.
