the mae lab—where all the creative processes regarding research, design and style conception, as well as part of the production take place—is located in locarno, switzerland, in a xvth century town house.

each mae creation is conceived with the idea of combining a pattern, a particularity or a characteristic of a fabric with a product. the fabric is always at the centre and the mae universe revolves around it. the research for fabrics is constantly carried out and is renewed independently and outside of the season, even if an eye to the colours of the moment and the stylistic trends is always maintained and considered. all the other materials that make up each mae product are chosen with care, always keeping in mind style, functionality and quality, and without making any compromises.
