the mahiya way


Here you are on our values page, which means that you too, care about the story of where your goods come from,
and who made them. Maybe you are just beginning to explore this value, or maybe its fundamentally
important to you, either way, we are pleased to let you know, it is also important to Mahiya.
Mahiya was born from a love of hand-crafted Bohemian treasures, & we continue to deliver our customers unique,
detailed craftmanship while staying committed to our sustainability & humanitarian values.
We are pleased to work closely with Artisans & their families across Indonesia, helping them to provide for
themselves & their families through fair pay.

100% of all the leathers used in Mahiya products are a bi-product of the food-industry, leathers that would otherwise be discarded. Priding ourselves on hand-crafted goods, and staying true to unique artisan practices, all our leathers are
also hand-dyed. Mahiya bags & wallets are not produced by fast fashion industry methods.
Producing only two small clothing collections per year, each piece of Mahiya clothing is designed to be trans-seasonal.
Mahiya garments are not influenced by fast & fleeting trends, making each piece relevant to
your wardrobe for years to come.

Where possible, we strive to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure that we use packaging that can be recycled. All our Leather goods come in a cotton re-usable cloth bag that can be used again as a beach, storage or shopping bag.

We believe in giving back where we can, and since 2016 we have been donating to a charity close to our heart,
Doctors Without Borders. This charity is a global medical aid providing assistance wherever needed most,
to assist in lifesaving humanitarian care.
We look forward to continuing to evolve our practices with each new season and we thank you from the
bottom of our hearts for being a part of the Mahiya Journey.

Mahiya Bags

Are your bags made with real leather?

Yes, Our incredible artisans handcraft each Mahiya handbag from ethically sourced leather, using pops of colours and unique designs to allow you to express yourself through your style. We use Ethically sourced cow, sheep and goat leather to suit each product. Each handbag is designed with functionality, along with style, at the forefront of our minds, resulting in the perfect accessory for every occasion.

Where are the bags made?

Each and every style is hand-designed in Australia and crafted by our talented team of local artisans in Bali, we love working with our gifted team of entrepreneurs on 'The Island of the Gods.'

How do I look after my leather?

Keep leather out of direct sunlight over long periods to prevent fading. We recommend using a leather protector spray or cream and conditioner to protect from accidental spills and cracking, and wipe any marks with a clean, damp cloth. Please read our Leather Care Tips & Tricks for more detailed information.

Are all bags the same?

Each piece of leather is ethically sourced and crafted by expert artisans, creating the perfect handbag for you each time. We understand the importance of individualism and freeing your spirit, which is why although our handbags can be similar, no two are ever exactly the same.
