MARVES | new york is a black & latina one woman owned small business based in NYC. every piece is handmade me.
my name's Mariah, i was taught to crochet by my grandmother at a young age. she was one of the coolest & most stylish humans EVER! through my modern aesthetic and a passion for art, i try to keep this family tradition alive and just as cool & stylish as she was.
born and raised in new york, i love my city, which is why i name my product after my favorite streets and neighborhoods. i keep my business as eco-friendly as possible by using natural fibers and reusable packaging. each handcrafted piece has the value of human touch. every item is created with its own unique quality.
every pieces is made by hand. no machines. no mass producing.
I make my own reusable bags and ship in biodegradable or recyclable packaging. I never include unnecessary extra wrapping paper or invoices.
I use natural fibers. cotton and wool are more eco‑friendly than acrylic. acrylic is made from plastic, which is extremely harmful to the environment and takes decades to breakdown.
there's tons of eco‑friendly and recycled yarn choices like t‑shirt yarn. I even make my own with old t‑shirts.
made with left over scrap yarn from other projects, no two upcycled pieces are ever the same. every scrap project is unique and different. upcycled projects are completely no waste. perfect for those looking to shop sustainably.
it's not easy running a small business. donate to MARVES here. thanks for the support!
