Our Story. Our Values.
MAYKHER like Maker or Make Her, is a profit with purpose, sustainable and ethical practise fashion company. We vow to work with makers, not machines, and to favour ethical employment opportunities and fair wages over fast fashion for fewer pennies. We are committed to helping harness the talent of women in the developing world, we want to ensure the greatness they were born with can thrive and flourish in even the most impoverished of areas. We’re proud to champion beautifully authentic craft techniques that are often over looked for cheaper, mass produced alternatives, techniques like block printing and backstrap weaving which are rich in history and culture and are skills passed down from generation to generation.
We believe in equality and equal opportunities for all humankind and use our store as a tool to address an area we feel particularly passionate about, education. There are approximately 62 million girls world wide out of education, often just because they’re a girl. A girls fundamental right to education neglected purely based on her gender. We’re focused on creating a sustainable solution to address this, investing at least 10% of our end of year profits into the education of young girls and women in areas of the world where they need it the most.
We are dedicated to educating people on the importance of slow, meaningful fashion. Ethical fashion that support the needs and well being of the planet and ALL the people involved in the making of every piece. Our values demonstrate our commitment to this:
