The Maiyet X The Brave Collection collaboration is a limited edition capsule in celebration of International Women's Day (IWD). The collection comprises two variations of The Brave Collection's signature Tassel Cuff featuring a Varanasi Silk Tassel.
Based on The Brave Collection's Signature Tassel Cuff, this Maiyet X Brave Collection exclusive features either a Varanasi Silk tassel, and a dangling Buffalo Tooth Charm, representing a small piece of a greater whole. Crafted in Sterling Silver Vermeil and plated in Rose Gold, this style is handmade in Cambodia by a local artisan to empower women across the globe.
15% of the proceeds from the sale of the cuffs will be donated to Planned Parenthood, a nonprofit that provides reproductive health services in the United States and globally.
As Jessica Hendricks Yee, the founder of the Brave Collection explains, "I have always been drawn to the way Maiyet so effortlessly blends the worlds of ethical, transparent production practices, with incredibly sophisticated design and the finest quality. As designers, we must enlighten our communities to associate luxury with honorable practices, and I see Maiyet as the leading pioneer in this space.
The luxury of tomorrow isn’t fine fabrics sewn in sweatshops, and it isn’t fair trade goods that sell only because they are fair trade – it’s a collision of brilliant design, marvelous materials, and a standard of respect for people and our environment that generations to come will be proud of. I am so incredibly honored to be partnering with such an important brand, and excited to see the magic that sparks by bringing our passionate female communities together. In my lifetime, there has never been a more important moment than right now to bring smart and powerful women together, and celebrate our values of equality and opportunity. This partnership is all about women supporting women – here in New York, and with our global community, from India to Cambodia and beyond."
