Where every piece matters – the MÄVINN collection

Meet MÄVINN, a new limited collection (available from June '23) that invites you to appreciate the beauty of craftsmanship – made together with social businesses that provide jobs for people who need them most. Rich with details, joyful pops of colour and tactile materials, every item has a story to tell.

    Designer Maria Vinka stands at a craft table, wearing a blue denim MÄVINN apron, and talks to designer Paulin Machado.

    Every piece creates jobs

    The expressive MÄVINN products provide jobs where jobs are few. This collection was co-created with our seven social business partners across Asia, who empower people from vulnerable groups through employment.

    Details that make a difference

    The collection is made extra special with hand-embroidered details. This warm-hued cushion cover is finished with a hand-stitched trim by women in rural villages in India where job opportunities are rare.

    Making your mark
