A driver for change
From the clothes we wear and how we feel individuality, to the infrastructures of the cities we live in, and the advertising and branding surrounding us; design shapes our everyday life.
Inspired by the alternative scene, MAYYA SALIBA grew from the wish to create fashion that is innovative and responsible. Our approach to create change is to reshape the industry and disrupt the way we design and experience fashion. By placing Circular Economy as a founding principle rather than an ambition, we aim to inspire a transformation across sectors. Each of our creations is designed using pioneering materials and cutting-edge technologies.
We are breaking new ground, challenging conventions towards a future based on connectivity, awareness, and collaboration.
