At Maia, our approach to fashion is deeply rooted in our commitment to small-scale, in-house production. We operate our own dedicated factory, focusing on limited production runs that enable us to craft garments responsibly and adapt quickly to both buying trends and customer needs. Our entire production line is devoted exclusively to creating pieces for our two retail locations and our online store in Sri Lanka, ensuring that each item reflects our dedication to quality and exclusivity.

We take immense pride in our entire design process, beginning with the original conceptualization of our designs. We devote significant time to designing, sourcing our fabrics, and creating prototypes from our sampling. Each stage, including production fits and close collaboration with our pattern makers and sewing team, is crucial. This detailed attention ensures that we think thoroughly about the best possible finishes for our consumer, balancing quality with affordability.

This focus on small-scale manufacturing allows us to maintain control over every aspect of production, from pattern design and cutting to assembly and specialized finishing. Our garments are not mass-produced; instead, they are crafted with meticulous attention to detail, which sets them apart from those of larger brands.

We prioritize ethical practices throughout our production process, ensuring fair treatment and good working conditions for our team. This commitment to ethics means we avoid the harsh time pressures that are common in larger, more mechanized factories, which influences our cost structure but ensures a product made with integrity.

The uniqueness of our operation means that our production costs are inherently higher. We do not benefit from the economies of scale that larger factories, which also handle exporting or produce sub-brands, enjoy. This limitation is reflected in our pricing, which we recently adjusted to include the increased costs of VAT—a decision aimed at covering costs rather than boosting profit margins.

Our prices, therefore, reflect the true costs of our unique design and production processes. Choosing Maia means investing in a garment made with love, care, and an unwavering commitment to ethical practices, woven with attention to every detail.

Thank you for supporting Maia and understanding the values that drive our pricing and production. We are dedicated to delivering the best possible products, styled with passion and crafted right.
