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.

1 Bag = Creates job & business programs.
We employ and empower Indigenous Artisans living in developing countries with paid fair wages to create financial independence, economic growth and to reduce poverty. We also support our Artisans with business skills programs allowing them to realize their dreams and directly impact their own communities.






1 Bag = 1 pair of Shoes
We advocate for women, children, and entrepreneurs with a socio-economic disadvantage in developing countries. Every MBH bag sold provides a pair of shoes for children in need through our program Shoes for Stars.
We believe that every kid deserves to live a life with dignity and love.

1 BAG= 57 Plastic bottles saved

Reducing Waste

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.

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.

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.
