Inspired by our mothers, Maria and Isa (MA+I) , who had cancer and taught us that with LOVE we can find the blessing in everything, we discovered that adaptive, comfortable, and fashionable clothing had the potential to help any person feel loved while they look and feel better.
We created MAI We Care for the BRAVE and BEAUTIFUL, designing our clothing line based on our favorite pieces, while adapting them to everyone’s journey.
From cancer patients to adaptive fashion for all needs
When we first imagined our clothing line in 2017, we had our moms during chemo in our minds. Along the way, we have helped many dress and undress after an arm or elbow surgery, eased a nurse´s day with a geriatric or immobilized patient, made someone's daily activities easier despite a disability, and even helped a friend or family member give comfort and care to a loved one.
Our inspiration is to help anyone with a physical condition to dress with dignity and feel better. Our goal is to make them feel as comfortable and good as they feel in their own clothes.
When we started, one of our first “business” meetings was in a cancer hospital for children in Guatemala. There we saw how children and parents with fewer economic possibilities struggle through these processes.
We thought we could help them by providing a little comfort through making their lives easier, and so we did! Since then, every year we are committed to donating clothing for cancer children and what we get in return is great: their smiles.
Inspired by you, crafted with love - born in Guatemala
Love means caring. Love means empathy, sharing, growing together through struggles. That is the reason behind our clothing. That is what we bring in each piece we develop. Designed and crafted by the people who take care of persons with physician conditions, and manufactured by workers in Guatemala whose life we are improving by assuring they have dignified work conditions.
Guatemala is a beautiful country with striving business and new startup ideas every day. MAI is the only adaptive clothing brand developed in Guatemala and Central America.
