6 years ago, when our mothers were diagnosed with cancer, our hearts sank.
We both saw the two women we loved the most go through unbearable pain. To somewhat alleviate their daily tasks, we created clothing that would grant them the soft and warm touch that they needed after their chemotherapy sessions.
We iterated different materials, zippers, velcros, and buttons until we finally figured out a snapping technique that was easy to put on, wear, and remove. The least we could do for our mothers, was to give them a little bit of love so they could go on with their therapies with comfort and dignity.
This is how MAI We Care brand was created.
We started with our mothers going through chemo on our minds, but we have helped a lot of people along the way.
We have helped athletes and patients after a shoulder, elbow, hip or knee surgery to get dressed and undressed with ease.
We have soothed the day of people in wheelchairs or with a prosthetic leg.
We have helped caregivers access their patients with dignity.
Now we are helping a whole world of people who live with disabilities, by making their day by day easier.
MAI combines the names of our mothers, María Olga and Isa, because it’s only fitting that our source of inspiration is at the forefront of our brand. “We Care” follows it because shortly after starting to craft adaptive clothes did we realize that what propelled us forward was impact.
This is the story of an impact-first brand that was born out of the homes of two women in Guatemala who now have the mission to change lives beyond their hometown and help people all around the world.
When we talk about impact, we are talking about millions of lives that can be dramatically changed through comfortable, highly functional and adaptive clothing, allowing them to dress and undress with ease. Both the patient and the caregiver get a break when clothes are created for people’s needs.
MAI We Care, an adaptive clothing brand, designed to adapt to your needs!
