MAERI is a contribution to the booming ethical fashion and
textile industry. Stemming from the need of the hour –

sustainability and the revival of extinct weave– the label
produces superior quality and well-designed handbags
using non-degradable plastic waste.

Maeri is much more than just material and weaves. It is an
intersection of culture , change and opportunity. We are inspired
by sustainability and the revival of the very stunning, but almost forgotten
century old techniques of Knotting. Our label is a crossroads of craft and
community, where we create handbags with modern design aesthetics for
the contemporary women of today. Each handbag is meticulously hand
woven using a collection of polyethilene (recycled plastic) original and
colored articles, by women weavers from insurgent areas in India. Every
craftsperson invests between 8 to 22 hours into creating a single product,
depending on the design and size. We encourage less privileged women,
those who may be disabled, women in old age homes, and empower them
with the opportunity to work from home, as for many, stepping out to work
may not even be an option. In fact, Maeri collaborates only with partners
respecting Fair Trade Principles, particularly women from villages or slums,

insuring them a fair income so as to enhance their livelihood.

Why Sustainable
Fashion ?

Once
the idea started to
seriously brew in our mind,
we knew that the brand had to deliver
more than just a fashion accessory .It had to
be something that would prompt a thoughtful
purchase. PLASTIC WASTE were a threat to the
environment. Today, it is being used positively to
manufacture handbags, garments, shoes etc. . In
the current scenario of textile pollution,

choosing green fashion is a sign
of being responsible
and sensible

towards
environment. One
can opt for such green fashion
without making any compromise on choice
or style. 
According to a report, 86% of plastic water bottles
used in US are dumped into the landfills. Around 60
million water bottles are daily used in US, which means
approximately 18,834,000,000 are dumped in the landfills
every year. Besides, each plastic bottle can take up to 700

years to perish. The alarming rate at which the numbers
of used plastic bottles are increasing in the landfills,
pose high risk to the environment.

Ethical yet high fashion!

Maeri bags are designed in our studio in St. Pete ,Florida, and
manufactured ,by artisan and small-scale ethical manufacturers
from India. With styles ranging from totes, satchels, cross-body bags, laptop
sleeves, evening clutches ,Maeri has a bag to suit your every mood and nine-

to-nine need! our designs and colours are minimalistic yet trendy.

Sustainable Fashion

Contemporary bags with a recycled twist; these bags are handmade using recycled
plastic by female slum dwellers in India.
 
Every morning a group of women from the slums search through piles of industrial waste,
anything that can be salvaged ranging from metal, plastic, paper, cloth etc.The recyclable wastes
are then sold to respective factories or recycle plants, where the waste is re-created into pipes,
tubes, window frames, plastic sheets, adhesive tapes and insulation wires. 

 A similar process makes the plastic wires for these beautiful, hands woven totes and
baskets. Available in an array of colors, Maeri Designs  buys these recycled plastic wires which are
used by the artisans to weave into these beautiful articles. 
 
 First amongst those trained in this craft at SPEED Trust was Revathi. Suffering from terminal blindness,
today Revathi is the master trainer for new women members at SPEED Trust. The artisans engaged in
making these bags are slum dwellers and physically challenged, who have the choice to work from home,
without having to move out of their houses. The plastic wire basket project has helped women

artisans from SPEED Trust to create a sustainable livelihood. They use the income generated
from this activity to educate their children, health needs and other basic requirements
for themselves and their families. The benefit of buying these bags is that it benefits
marginalized women. Not just the weavers, but also the rag pickers who saved
your bottle from the landfill.

SPEED Trust (Slum People Education & Economic
Development), is a non-profit organization based in ,
India. The organisation supports, socio-economically
deprived women from the urban slum areas of. SPEED
Trust partnered with Maeri Design, a fair trade network
of organizations which supports various women craft
producers, organizations and cooperatives working towards
creating better livelihood opportunities, self-sustainability
and a platform for their products.
