We are excited to announce the arrival of Mavis by Herrera; sustainable bags & totes to elevate your style to the boutique!

We are currently the only Boutique in Florida to offer the unique and chic style Mavis by Herrera bags & totes directly to you. And we are also pleased to bring you a sustainable & regenerative brand that stands for more than just fashion. What is clearly evident in every handmade Mavis by Herrera bag, is Mavis’ commitment to reducing plastic pollution and creating a positive social impact. Made with the exceptional skills of her artisans, each bag is a sign of social and economic change, reducing poverty and providing a life of dignity and respect. When you choose a tote or bag from Mavis by Herrera, you become a part of their story, where each bag is a statement of style and impact.

How it all Started

A day in Spring of 2017 changed Mavis’ life forever. What started out as a run, unfortunately put Mavis in the ICU for a week due to a low heart rate. Once her heart rate was stable, she was able to go home. It was this day that Mavis decided to live by the present and when she made a promise to herself, “If today is the last day of my life, it will be the best day of my life”.  She left her corporate job, sold her car and with full purpose started Mavis by Herrera with her own savings.

Mavis’ grandma was a person who believed in her and loved her just the way she was. So to honor her grandma, she founded the name Mavis by Herrera.

Each of Mavis by Herrera bags are made of recycled plastic and upcycled plastic to reduce plastic waste and CO2 emissions. Plastic containers which have finished their life cycle are them transformed into sustainable, ethical and elegant bags

At the heart of the Mavis by Herrera brand is a commitment to empower and uplift Indigenous Artisans in developing countries. We provide business skills training and fair wages which in turn creates economic growth, reduces poverty while enabling financial independence for our Artisans.

We are also committed to advocating for women, children as well as entrepreneurs who may be facing socio-economic disadvantages in developing countries. With every MBH bag sold, we provide a pair of shoes to children in need through our Shoes for Stars program. We would love for you to be a part of our mission in creating a brighter future for these children where they can experience dignity and love and where they can reach their full potential.
