Maya is launching her silk scarf collection Maya Material.  Be the first to get one of Maya’s signature scarves before they go to market.  Each scarf embeds the principles of mindfulness and act as your personal reminder to live in the moment.  You help lay the foundations of Maya Material, which also supports wellbeing through mindful doodling workshops. 

Pick a colour and pattern that brings you delight, whether you are getting a scarf for yourself or a loved one each scarf exudes the mindful principle of compassion. Bright bold colours and patterns are on trend and these scarves will be delivered in time for Christmas.

About Maya Material 

Maya Cochrane works on the threshold between architecture and textile design. To break free from the constraints of architecture Maya began mindful drawing techniques exploring the interplay of colour and pattern. Her ambition diversied in size, scale and material, leading to the translation of hand drawn, hand painted patterns to digitally printed silk scarves, made in the UK.  

To learn more about this venture watch the video above and pledge to have a signature silk scarf created for yourself or a loved one - made and delivered in time for Christmas.

About Mindful Doodling Workshops

Maya feels it is important to give back to the local community using her professional skills so she plans to provide mindful doodling workshops to local London residents to counterbalance the stress of London life.  One percent of profits will go towards charities that promote wellbeing.
