Vintage Sensibility and Sustainability

Lavai Maria started in 1997 by Vania Scharbach. While studying acting in São Paulo, Brazil, Vania started selling hand-made tote bags as a side job, but eventually began making clothes. The name Lavai Maria means "there goes Mary" in Portuguese and is named after a Brazilian song, bringing a sense of nostalgia to her business.

Lavai Maria is now a unique, vintage boutique located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We carry a well-curated mix of handpicked vintage pieces, reworked and recycled garments, art and jewelry from local artists and designers, as well as hand-crafted designs by Vania. We hope to bring you one of a kind merchandise, and so we offer customized tailoring to all our pieces. Please let us know before shipment.

Shop around and enjoy!

Welcome to Lavai Maria!

Everything in this shop is vintage, hand-picked, and hand-made by me, Vania. I love constructing pieces from my own patterns, as well as reconstructing vintage garments. Sustainability is very important to me, and so I reuse and recycle older pieces of clothing to create newer looks. Please take a look and enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by :)
