MAXA ‘UKA (“wise doe”) embroidered garments is a Mexican brand born with the intention of dignifying the manual labor of Wixarika artisans from Sierra Madre Occidental, one of the most mystical and emblematic indigenous communities in Mexico where the artisans use traditional embroidery techniques to capture the symbols of their culture in high quality garments. We always work with the goal of introducing the richness and beauty of the “Wixarika Culture” to the world.

The embroidery of each garment is made by hand by a single woman artisan, normally it takes 60-90 days to finish it depending on the complexity of the design.

Each piece is unique because every artisan reflects their interpretation of the world on it, achieving patterns with details of singular beauty. The collection includes embroidered short jackets, long jackets, dresses and blouses. Our collection fits a contemporary style for a modern woman, creating garments that can be adapted to everyday use as well as an elegant outfit for night out. We really appreciate your interest on our collection, that is made specially for you.

"When you buy a handcrafted item you are actually buying much more than a simple item. You are buying
hours and days of hard work, a piece of heart, a moment in life of the artisan"
