About

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!
