love letters written in cotton or sealed with indigo ...




Maiwa is proud to be featured in the business section of Montecristo Magazine. Writer Maya-Roisin Slater wrapped up with a paragraph that we want to share:

Maiwa is more than just a store, though—beyond scarves and blankets, Kwon is in the business of selling stories, and selling pieces of art that are labours of love, not labours of necessity. Each dye pattern or set of stitching is its own dialect; the textile pieces are statements from the hands of their makers. The items sold at Maiwa are lover letters written in cotton or sealed with indigo, while Kwon and her team take the role of the postman, delivering each precious message faithfully to the homes of those ready and eager to listen.
