At its foundation, the bohemian lifestyle is truly what inspires the Mahiya brand and line of products, all handmade with love. After growing up in Australia, Alex and Ryan were both fortunate enough to travel to exotic locations around the world and experience the charm of different cultures and places. In addition to their ingrained love of the ocean, in 2013 they set out to create a collection of bohemian leather bags, wallets, shoes and accessories that represented the beauty they encountered on both their bohemian adventures and at home.
Mahiya collections are designed and photographed by Alex herself, a true creative and talented soul. A professional singer and performer since the age of 13, Alex started her first label at 17 in South Australia, designing and making jewellery, and is also currently a professional photographer.
Following an early success and demand for Mahiya products, Alex and Ryan soon expanded the 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 has created an exclusive style that offers something different for the bohemian-spirited ladies of the world. Signature styles include beautifully hand tooled leather designs, tassels and fringing, bright pinks, turquoise embroidery and Guatemalan fabric inlays.
All leather used by Mahiya is ethically sourced and sustainable, and a by-product of the meat industry. Hand designed in Australia and crafted by local artisans in Bali, we love working with our talented team of entrepreneurs on 'The Island of the Gods.'
Mahiya has attracted a loyal community of bohemian babes and boho boutiques across the globe (that's you!), and is growing in recognition by the day. Join the Mahiya community on social media or reach out to find out how to become a Brand Ambassador
