Maho’s frame designs and colorways are inspired by our travels to the great cities and natural landscapes of the world.
Rather than chasing trends, we design classic, comfortable frames with ultra-premium materials and superior functionality in mind.
Our frames are all handmade in a family-run factory with plant-based cellulose acetate plastic and Italian stainless steel and 24K gold hardware.
Maho is a product of life in the Caribbean and Gulf Coast and our search for the perfect shades for endless summers. We believe life is too short to compromise on some things -- travel, good food, friends, family, and enjoying the outdoors.
After paying our dues as an interior designer and a corporate lawyer, we moved to the Virgin Islands to live our dream of spending every spare moment on the beach, in a boat, or in the water.
While spending thousands of hours on the crystal-clear Caribbean sea, our dissatisfaction with the status quo of mass-produced, expensive eyewear of questionable quality from the major brands crystallized into a business plan to produce highly functional, simple, beautiful handmade shades at a reasonable price.
We’ve since moved back to the white sands of the Gulf Coast, where we continue to expand our line of handmade, limited-edition polarized shades backed by a lifetime warranty. Our fast-growing community of customers and retailers has given our brand life beyond what we ever expected, and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
