Inspired by their bohemian lifestyle, travels around the world experiencing different cultures and places, and an ingrained love of the ocean, Alex and Ryan started out creating collections of bohemian leather bags, wallets, shoes and accessories. Following an early success and demand for the products, Mahiya soon expanded its collections to include beautiful bohemian clothing such as retro inspired suede capes, boho dresses, kaftans, harem pants, jewellery and much, much more.
The signature Mahiya style is colourful and fun, bold yet whimsical, intricate yet carefree. A contradiction in terms, the label creates a truly unique style that offers something a little different for the bohemian spirited women of the world. Signature styles include beautifully hand tooled leather designs, tassels and fringing, bright pinks, turquoise embroidery and Guatemalan fabric inlays.
Mahiya collections are designed and photographed by Alex herself, who is a true creative and a rather talented soul. Alex also sings and performs professionally and has been doing so since she was 13; she’s been designing for 5 years and has been a photographer for 6. At a young age, Alex’s creative talents became apparent while growing up in South Australia, where she started her first label at 17 designing and making jewellery. Not one to sit still for too long, Alex still photographs a number of special occasions and fashion shoots for other labels.
Created in 2013, Mahiya has attracted a loyal community of bohemian babes and boho boutiques, and is growing in recognition across the globe. Join the Mahiya community by following them on social media.
