We believe that together we can create positive impact in the world.

One bag with a Sustainable Impact

Mavis by Herrera is a sustainable and regenerative brand that is full of passion and aims to reduce plastic pollution and to create a positive social impact.

Our bags are hand made by exceptionally skilled artisans, not by machine.

Each of our bags contributes to a social economic impact to reduce poverty and provides an opportunity to our artisans to live a life with dignity and respect.

When you buy a MBH Bag, you have a powerful story to tell.

LOVE IS STRONGER THAN DEATH
The Story Behind the Name

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 and integrity.

The name Mavis by Herrera is in honor to my grandma who is no longer in this planet. I told my Grandma that I will call this new journey Mavis by Herrera. So Herrera comes to honor my Grandma, a person who always believed in me and loved me just the way I am.
