Maiyet,named after the Egyptian goddess of truth and harmony is a first in luxury fashion. The brainchild of human rights lawyer Paul Van Zyl and industry talent Kristy Caylor aims to promote world development through high-end consumption, by working with only artisans in developing countries like Colombia, South Africa, Kenya, Indonesia, and India. The duo spent six months pre-debut sourcing materials from artisan communities in these countries.

Final products are put together in small factories in Italy.

The spring collection will be sold exclusively at Barneys.
