Maium, meaning rain in an old Amsterdam dialect, produces raincoats to protect you from it. True to the Dutch heritage, they combine fashion and innovative design: the zippers transform the raincoat into a poncho. The brand was founded in 2016 by Hendrik (background in finance) and Anita (background in fashion/design), both born in Amsterdam, after Hendrik ran into the problem that his suit got wet when riding his bicycle to appointments. Anita designed a solution to his problem and Maium was born. Originated from the daily stress of the rain, Maium represents style, quality and ease. Beautiful ready-to-wear garments with unique timeless design. Quality in production and innovation, keeping you dry afoot and on your bike (since the poncho can be hung over the handlebars of your bike, you will reach your destination safely even in the rain).
Maium´s rainwear is produced from recycled plastic bottles, does not contain any harmful substances and is manufactured under safe and healthy working conditions. The garments are produced in China, by a manufacturer that specializes in recycled material and sources its materials in China. They are Oeko-Tex Class I and II certified as well as BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) certified. These certificates ensure that the working conditions for employees at the factory are fair, safe and healthy. Maium also has a fair trade cooperation with this factory, meaning that half of the order is paid when placing it and the other half at delivery. Furthermore, the factory is visited at least twice a year by Amsterdam head quarters to keep the relationship healthy.
