My name is: Jennifer Fontao.
I’m known for being: chief merchandiser and operations director at Maiyet.
I'm helping to launch: The Maiyet Collective, a collaborative space featuring likeminded, ethical brands in apparel, accessories, leather goods, homewares, clean skincare and beauty.
You can find it at: 16 Crosby Street, Soho, NYC.
What makes it special is: The Maiyet Collective celebrates a commitment to ethical and sustainable living. The space plays host to a range of ethically-minded partners, alongside the Maiyet label. Beyond product, the collective is an inspiring and welcoming environment with community events, panel discussions and workshops, featuring experts and innovators across key cultural industries from fashion to beauty, from skincare to art and design.
One thing you can’t miss is: Our Fair cashmere created in our very own cashmere mill in Mongolia, just in time for the cooler weather! It is the only certified ethical and environmentally sustainable luxury cashmere yarn.

From clean toothpaste and candles to Tata Harper face masks and Kjer Weiss cosmetics, from Higher Dose sauna wraps to Sakara Life hemp chocolates and supplements by The Nue Co, there are an array of products to foster self-love
