Experience the passion of Mavis by Herrera, a sustainable and regenerative brand that stands for more than just fashion.
Our commitment to reducing plastic pollution and creating a positive social impact is evident in every handcrafted bag. Made with exceptional skill by our artisans, each bag is a symbol of social and economic change, reducing poverty and providing a life of dignity and respect.
When you choose an MBH bag, you become a part of our story of purposeful fashion, where each bag is a statement of style and impact.
At the heart of our brand lies a commitment to empower and uplift Indigenous Artisans in developing countries. By providing fair wages and business skills training, we are able to create economic growth and reduce poverty, while enabling financial independence for our Artisans.
At Mavis by Herrera, we are committed to advocating for women, children, and entrepreneurs facing socio-economic disadvantages in developing countries. With every bag sold, we provide a pair of shoes to children in need through our program Shoes for Stars. Join us in our mission to create a brighter future for these children, where they can experience dignity and love, and reach their full potential
Our bags are made of repurposed plastic and upcycled materials to reduce plastic waste and CO2 emissions. We take plastic containers that have finished their life cycle and transform them into elegant, sustainable and ethical bags.
It was spring of 2017 when I went out for a run and ended up in the ICU. My heart was at 28bpm and my body wasn't responding. I was told that my heart rate was very low and could stop beating at any time. I spent a week in the ICU till my heart rate was more stable to go home.
That day my life changed forever and decided to start living life in the present and made a promise to myself:
"If today is going to be the last day of my life, it will be the best day of my life"
I left my corporate job, sold my car and started Mavis by Herrera with my own savings account and with full of purpose.
The name Mavis by Herrera is in honor to my grandma who is no longer in this planet. My grandma was a person who always believed in me and loved me just the way I am.
