Heritage

Maho was founded in 2015 to smash the status quo. We tread a distinct path from the 2000% mark-ups of the “big brands” and environmentally disastrous “fast fashion” brands spewing low quality junk that only lasts a few months.

 We create products of exceptional quality, superior comfort, and incredible value from teeny-tiny beach towns in Alabama and the Virgin Islands. Our mission is to craft the very best goods sustainably, ethically, and fairly to all involved. Our name "Maho" reflects the brand's origins at the spectacular Maho Bay on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Inspired by Travel

Founders Alex and Kris Anderson have been fortunate to travel to 44+ countries together since 2013, when they first had the idea to develop classically styled performance sunglasses. During that time they gathered abundant inspiration from global architecture and landscapes of the globe. Each Maho frame is named for a destination explored by Alex and Kris that inspired a matching frame silhouette.

The Pursuit of Perfection

Our Quality

Designed to Last

Our Supply Chain

An Ethical Approach

We’ve spent countless hours finding the best factories in the world. We visit often and have forged personal relationships with the owners. We now audit each supplier to evaluate things like fair wages, reasonable hours, and environmental impact. Our approach ensures that every product is manufactured in an ethical manner.

Our Commitment

Sustainability First

Our Process

Performance for Everyday

We design every product to stay comfortable during all-day active wear. We utilize ergonomically designed temple tips, matte finishes, wide acetate nose pieces, keyhole bridges, and of course our ultra-light Ultramarine lenses to provide unrivaled comfort. We design for the beach, the lake, the golf course, and adventures of all kinds, rather than the runway.

Our Distinctiveness

Limited Runs

Our Bespoke Fit

We design every pair with zyl acetate, a phenomenal plastic-like material derived from wood pulp and cotton fiber. This hypoallergenic, bio-degradable material can be molded to your face so that it fits like a glove. Zyl acetate is far more expensive than typical injection-molded plastic to produce, but we think you're worth it.

Our Ownership

For Life

When you buy a Maho product, it comes with a Lifetime Warranty that carries with it our support for your lifetime of ownership. We will always repair or replace your broken product for a fee that reflects our costs. That means we don’t make money on repair or replacement, but we don’t lose it either -- so we’ll stay in business and available to fix your goods forever. When we repair or replace, we recycle each and every available component to minimize waste and our collective environmental impact. We are currently able to recycle up to 80% of each product, and have implemented policies with a goal of 95%+ recyclability.
