We've worked with Green Story to evaluate the social and environmental impact of our supply chain and obtain quantifiable information on how your purchases make an impact. You can find information on our overall impact on our homepage as well as the impact of a single purchase on each product page and upon checkout. If you'd like to learn more check out their Impact Report on Maven Women.
A range of women who span appearances, ages, and builds model our clothing. We never photoshop bodies or create imagery of women that is not an authentic likeness. Our models include both professional models and women who work in other areas. All of our models are inspiring women who live our values in diverse ways. We have partnered with values-based photographer Allie Mullin, environmental leader Verena Radulovic, anti-trafficking advocate Mark Story, and the Diversity is Beauty Project on our photography and our digital editing is done by Pixelz.
Our clothing is shipped to you using minimalist, recycled made in America packaging from EcoEnclose and we use carbon offsets whenever possible. We print our hang tags and clothing inserts on recycled paper at Indie Printing in downtown Los Angeles, which is close to both our factory and fulfillment location.
We aim to be as close to a zero waste company as possible and donate our fabric scraps to nonprofits and social enterprises. Domestically we donate to Regenerous Designs and other woman-led social enterprises. Any leftover materials from our fair trade production in India are donated to the Meher Road Foundation, a micro-enterprise skills training program for women that promotes environmental consciousness through upcycling.
Each Maven Women package that comes to you is lovingly wrapped and shipped from Los Angeles in partnership with Elisha C., a woman-owned, fair trade company. Their founder Elisha Chan is the Executive Director of Fair Trade LA and she also manages our quality control, shipping, fulfillment, and more.
Elisha supports the creation and cultivation of a conscious supply chain for our American Eco-Innovation Collection on the ground in Los Angeles. She has visited and interviewed employees at our partner Laguna Fabrics. and also regularly visits Lefty Production Company, where she conducts quality control on our pieces before they leave the factory.
This collection is created by Mehera Shaw, an artisanal, fair trade manufacturer in Jaipur, India. Their artisans use centuries-old techniques that preserve craft heritage and support decentralized production methods in rural India.
This collection is made of a gorgeous eco Ponte de Roma fabric made of certified organic cotton and created in a family-owned factory in Los Angeles. Every step of the process is local and sustainable.
A public interest lawyer and nonprofit professional, Rebecca worked on worker rights, women's empowerment, poverty alleviation, fair trade, anti-human trafficking, and other issues related to sustainable fashion in the U.S. and around the globe.
Although Rebecca knew how complex and harmful the global garment industry could be, she had trouble finding clothing that fit her values, vocation, and aesthetic. When she spoke with other women she found that they shared the same desire. These conversations also shared another common theme: limited options for well-fitting, flattering, and stylish clothing.
It took three years of hard work with fabric sourcing, design, fittings, testing, partnership building, and quality control to create a product that is thoughtful about people and planet at every step. We are so grateful for the over 100 women who supported the creation of these stunning investment pieces.
