At the heart of know-how

Maradji
At the heart of know-how

From Delhi to Florence, via the Fez region of Morocco, Maradji influences are plural and play a key role from inspiration to creation

After spending a year in India as a final year student, I returned to my first love, to this country that inspired me so much to develop my collections.

Italy: the mythical headgear!

Italy: the mythical headgear!

Italy is a country known for its art of hat making.

It was therefore quite natural that we entrusted Italian milliners with the manufacture of our felt and straw hats, respectively in the province of Fermo and near Florence. We also use natural materials: wool for the winter and sea grass or palm leaf for our summer hats.

Project M: a 100% sustainable range

Second chapter

Project M: a 100% sustainable range

This is for me the achievement of a strong will that I have been defending
since the creation of Maradji.

Our ideal: a 100% sustainable and irreproachable production

Why creating material when you can compose with what already exists? 
With a bit of creativity and a bit of will, anything is possible. Let us present you the Project M.

This is made possible thanks to the ancestral know-how of our craftsmen who work according to the rules of the art and in conditions that respect both people and the environment, but also thanks to the components of this precious leather goods.

At the heart of Project M is our first range of 100% recycled bags: from leather to thread, including sewing and lining.
Our main focus? Vegetable-tanned leather with the Leather Standard by Oeko Tex label, free of all toxic substances. 

Finally, our accessories will arrive in your hands carefully packed in pretty dust-bags, also made of recycled cotton. The circle is complete!

On our way to Dehli

Our worshops

Leather goods are made in Delhi, in a workshop that has been with us for six years now, that followed us in our early days, and with whom we have been working closely ever since. The company is SA8000 certified, one of the most demanding certifications and demonstrates its social responsibility through the promotion of workers' human rights.

In concrete terms, this means that the company respects and guarantees respect for the fundamental rights of workers, including the regulation of child labour, freedom of association, health and safety, the right to collective bargaining, non-discrimination, working time, paid holidays and remuneration. The materials used are Reach certified and comply with European standards for chemical substances used in the leather tanning process.

Our worshops

Leather goods are made in Delhi, in a workshop that has been with us for three years now, that followed us in our early days, and with whom we have been working closely ever since. The company is SA8000 certified, one of the most demanding certifications and demonstrates its social responsibility through the promotion of workers' human rights.

In concrete terms...

This means that the company respects and guarantees respect for the fundamental rights of workers, including the regulation of child labour, freedom of association, health and safety, the right to collective bargaining, non-discrimination, working time, paid holidays and remuneration. The materials used are Reach certified and comply with European standards for chemical substances used in the leather tanning process.

The fabrics and jacquards, braids and embroidered patches used on our accessories are directly sourced on the spot, in Delhi, by the designer herself in the various markets of the city.

Our fabrics

Our scarves are made in Sanganer, near Jaipur, in the family business in Madhu, where Maradji's designer did her final year internship. The small size of the workshop enables us to guarantee its integrity and the respect of working conditions. Here, craftsmanship is the keyword. 

Our emblematic Anna is made of silk and modal, a fibre transformed from wood. It is printed and handmade.

Marocco: king of the wicker basket

The work, exclusively manual, requires time and patience. All the ornaments we add later are also hand-embroidered. 

Of berber origin

An ancestral know-how

Our wicker baskets are made in the region of Fez by craftsmen working in basketry according to ancestral know-how, of Berber origin. Most of them are woven from the fibres of doum, a small palm tree whose leaves are reputed to be rot-proof, and are recycled in rural areas to make wicker baskets.
