MAYTA Collection is a boutique ethical fashion brand fueled by a love of travel, culture, and tradition. Founder and designer Maggie O’Reilly travels frequently and has connected with numerous artisans on her journeys. Inspired by the colors, textures, and materials in the markets and the relationships developed with artisans worldwide, Maggie launched MAYTA Collection in 2016 to share her unique designs with the world.
Our line includes home goods that are high quality, one of a kind and colorful as well as our iconic weekender travel bag. Each piece is handcrafted in small batches using up-cycled textiles and fabrics. The step by step creative process is done with care, from the first sketch to sourcing the materials, cutting and sewing the textiles and putting the finishing touches on each piece.
We believe in disrupting the fashion industry by designing items that are not mass produced. That’s why every item in our collection is one of a kind: we want our customers to be inspired to travel along with expressing their personal style through each item they purchase.
MAYTA Collection is committed to ethical production, paying fair wages to the people who make our products, and investing in the communities we work in. We specialize in discovering small groups of artisans who might otherwise be overlooked. We believe in giving everyone a chance to tell their story!
MAYTA Collection is committed to ethical production, paying fair wages to the people who make our products, and investing in the communities we work in. We are proud members of Chicago Fair Trade.
About Our Founder
Maggie O’Reilly, a native of the South Side of Chicago, is a multi passionate entrepreneur, travel junkie, and mother of two. Maggie prefers sunny beaches over snowy cities, and loves exploring new cultures, languages, and local cuisines. She has a knack for networking, relationship-building and recently started a global meeting & event company.
Maggie has a love for all things Latin America and is bilingual in Spanish. She believes that traveling is the best way to learn more about the world but more importantly about yourself. Her husband, Gustavo, who is from Lima, Peru introduced her to the richness of his country and from that was what sparked the idea of MAYTA Collection. Maggie knew that one day, her children could see the richness in Peruvian culture by following along on this journey.
