WHO WE ARE

Ethically made - fair trade - traceable - respect for animals

Maydi uses only natural fibers and organic yarns in her hand-woven fabrics.

The timeless spirit of each piece manifests itself in a 100% contemporary and refined design, carried out through the ancient techniques of hand-knitting, manual weaving-loom and crochet, which are thus revalued.

Maydi believes in the principles of fair trade, hence her designs are developed and produced in collaboration with local Argentine artisans, assuring them fair remuneration and respect for the legacy of their craft and art.

Weaving loom is one of the oldest cultural traditions of Aboriginal peoples and a clear statement of the importance of women as transmitters of life and culture in society.

Certified Wildlife Friendly brand

Maydi is supplied with fine Merino wool from the Argentine Patagonia, certified Wildlife Friendly © as it is obtained in coexistence with the native wildlife species. The wool Merino de Península Valdés © is produced by a group of ranchers keeping sheep numbers according to the conservation of the native vegetation, and allowing the native herbivores like guanacos and Darwin’s rheas to thrive in their ranches. Also, these ranchers are committed to coexist with the native predators like pumas, wild cats and foxes by using non-lethal methods to avoid predation on the sheep, like the introduction of livestock guardian dogs, while favoring native predator-prey interactions. All these procedures and actions are based on scientific research conducted by scientists of the National Research Council of Argentina, in collaboration with two non Government organizations such as the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina. We are proud to work with all our partners in order to account for the production process which takes care of the environment, the well-being of animals and the development of individuals and organizations involved in the entire value chain.

Certified Wildlife Friendly brand

Maydi se suministra con fina lana Merino de la Patagonia Argentina, certificada Wildlife Friendly © ya que se obtiene en convivencia con las especies de fauna autóctona. La lana Merino Península Valdés © es producida por un grupo de ganaderos que crían ovejas de acuerdo con la conservación de la vegetación nativa y permiten que los herbívoros nativos como guanacos y ñandúes de Darwin prosperen en sus ranchos. Además, estos ganaderos están comprometidos a convivir con los depredadores nativos como pumas, gatos salvajes y zorros mediante el uso de métodos no letales para evitar la depredación de las ovejas, como la introducción de perros guardianes del ganado, al tiempo que se favorecen las interacciones depredador-presa nativos. Todos estos procedimientos y acciones se basan en investigaciones científicas realizadas por científicos del CONICET, en colaboración con dos organizaciones no gubernamentales como la Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) y la Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina (FVSA). Estamos orgullosos de trabajar con todos nuestros socios para dar cuenta del proceso de producción que cuida el medio ambiente, el bienestar de los animales y el desarrollo de las personas y organizaciones involucradas en toda la cadena de valor.
