M A Y U is a sustainable luxury lifestyle brand which promotes a conscious way of life. We craft goods for the betterment of people and planet.
Modern luxury is rooted in the idea of having the power to make ethical choices. M A Y U is more than a brand. We are a living, breathing eco-system that creates to inspire sustainable living. M A Y U finds its beginnings in a simple idea that trailed the founder, Mayura Davda-Shah, all the way back to India from Iceland – it was the thought of being able to create shared value through conscious products.
‘M A Y U’ is derived from ‘Mayura’, which, in Japanese means ‘gentleness’ and ‘superiority’. These two contrasting, yet complementary qualities represent the pillars on which M A Y U is built.
