After four years building a brand in NYC, VOZ, an ethical luxury fashion line that empowers artisan women in Chile, has partnered with Maiyet to launch the Maiyet Collective store on 16 Crosby St. in SoHo.
Shoppers will find designated areas for each of its new brand partners — Raven + Lily, Voz and Stae — at the 16 Crosby Street boutique. Raven + Lily produces apparel, accessories and home goods with the help of 1,500 women who are provided fair trade wages to help them break free from poverty. Voz is an ethically minded label that aims to protect the well-being and cultural values of rural indigenous women in South America. And Stae specializes in natural beauty products that are selected through personal trial. These brands meld well with Maiyet, which has always focused on ethically sourced, sustainable items as key to the company’s ethos.
