Ethically sourced products for a concious lifestyle

When Catherine May opened Maison May, she wanted to create an extension of her own home for people. The intention behind this was not a simple business calculation. Why would anybody intentionally make themselves vulnerable like that? She was driven by the wish to share her beliefs with her community and create a place where sustainable lifestyle was more than lip service.

Craftsmanship & heritage

Honoring the simple beauty of handmade, ethically sourced products lies at the core of Maison May. Whether it be the food served, the coffee brewed or the plates used – every single item at Maison May was made by skilled craftsmen and reflects their cultural and natural heritage.

Maison May circles around ethically sourced products – made by humans, not machines – and the firm belief that the only way to support a sustainable lifestyle for makers and buyers is to value quality and care. Hence, only objects that follow this path have the power to connect people on a deeper level.

Objects with power & meaning

The essence of the Maison May lifestyle brand is simple: As a women-run and women-owned business, intuition is a strong guideline. We carry products that contribute to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Therefore, they make us feel good.

That said, women-owned businesses naturally hold a special place in Maison May’s supply chain. Catherine strongly believes that female entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses can effectively change the way business is done. Together they can reinstall a moral codex that yet again values quality and care over price.

Ethically sourced, handmade products might need more time to grow and develop but there are a time and a place for them. At Maison May we believe this time and place is right now. Right here.

We invite you to step into Maison May’s world – not as a bypassing guest but as a conscious human being.
