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, specificity or characteristic of a fabric with a product. the fabric is always at the core and the mae universe revolves around it. the research for fabrics is constantly carried out and renewed independently of trends and season, even if the colours of the moment as well as current styles are matters made is always aware of.

all other materials that become parts of any mae product are chosen with care, without any compromises and always keeping style, functionality and quality in mind.
