“I founded Maakola for the global woman whose fashion choices reflect her actions, values, and lifestyle. What she wears, empowers her. She cares about the relationship between her being, other humans, and the planet. And she takes pride in her personal choices and collective stories.” – Aurora Chiste, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Maakola
The Luxury of Conscious Beauty
Each piece is hand crafted and tailored to ensure the perfect fit. We co-create with the artisans and connect them to the global market to help preserve local heritage and craftsmanship. Our clothes are designed to be exceptional; to stand the test of time. Transparency is a cornerstone of our approach. Every piece of the Maakola collection is responsibly and meticulously sourced and produced. Maakola uses blockchain technology to help you track and verify the origin of your clothes. Our goal is to build a resilient circular ecosystem from our materials to the packaging, to your consumption.
A Story of Sustainable Luxury.
Everything we produce is made from natural fibers: cotton, silk, wool, or Tencel. Our designs often feature African prints and indigenous African fabrics known for their vivid colors, supreme quality, and luxurious feel.
From taking the measures to engaging with our tailors, we invite you to actively participate in the process of creating your clothes. All of our clothing is designed to last a lifetime. We invite all customers to join our Wear Me 30 Times initiative inspired by Livia Firth.
We stand against all types of discrimination through our company culture and hiring practices, as well as our imagery, content, and the stories we tell. Our policies are tailored to prevent and correct any misconduct in this regard.
