Happiness Happens

Apr 20, 2020

Maggie O’Reilly is the founder and designer of MAYTA Collection, which is a boutique ethical fashion label fueled by a love of travel, culture, and high quality artisan craftsmanship.  Maggie travels frequently and has connected with many artisans on her journeys.  Each collection is inspired by the colors, textures, and people she encounters while exploring marketplaces worldwide.  Maggie launched MAYTA Collection in 2016 to share her unique designs with the world.


Her line of fashion accessories and home goods are unique, colorful, and thoughtfully designed. Each piece is handcrafted in small batches repurposing textiles and preserving heritage. Their team works with artisans from Morocco and Peru to source textiles and leather that would otherwise have been discarded.  They then create statement pieces that will breathe new life into the product.
