Why to buy: MAHR offers a genuine passion for sustainability with a celebration of innovative and artisan craft. The clothing is a 100% Made in Italy, from concept to packaging. The fabrics come from Lombardy (Milan area) to in MAHR's Rome laboratory. It is important to the MAHR team that their supply chain is small, local and supports the best artisans in Italy.
The most important thing is that MAHR’s product is not based on chain production, but it’s entirely done by a person. The one who cuts it is the same one that sews it, the same one that attaches the label. The team want to protect the environment, and support the culture of fabric creation in Italy.
What we love: MAHR was born through a desire for innovation. Their "Tweggings" are focused on movement and ease. The inspiration comes from Rudolf Nourayew , he was one of the first dancers to wear pants with a very high waist, Nureyev deeply loved the work of Martha Graham , the leader of American "modern dance".
Wanting to recreate the legging into something new, the designers at MAHR want you twegging to become a staple in your wardrobe, with comfort and practicality being their primary concern. Their focus is on ease of movement, reinventing the legging to have a higher waist and stretch.
