It's been nice and warm in Sydney so we've been testing out the collection in parks! Took her about 10 seconds to get icecream and mud all over it - worth it!!

About

A Labour of Love

The first time I fell in love with the art of creating, I was just 6 years old. My aunt showed me how to make a suit for my doll. With her help, a needle and thread, we made a tiny, blue and white polka dot jacket and pencil skirt. I was in such awe that a flat piece of fabric could be moulded by our hands into something so beautiful.

Maybe it was that moment, or maybe it's in my blood (my mother and grandmother both sewed), but I was completely hooked!

I’ve spent the last 30 or so years working in the fashion and costume industry, doing every job from assisting, to sewing to designing. Then a few years ago, when my daughter Maya was born, I started to make her clothes because I could never find what I wanted in stores. I wanted clothing that was beautiful, practical, and age appropriate. I wanted simple designs in block colours and a variety to choose from. I'm a big fan of dressing kids like kids for as long as possible!

I also realized that no other job would make me as happy as when I was with my girl so I decided to turn my creative passion into a business, allowing me to do what I love, while still being able to look after my baby.

My mission for Maya Me Designs is to create beautiful clothing for kids that they love to wear, feel comfortable in and can be themselves in.

The designs are modern and minimalist, with a nod to vintage styles. I use natural fabrics in neutrals and brights, and though I love block colours, I can never go past spots and stripes! I am also a little bit obsessed with pockets, which I incorporate into the garments as much as I can. Who doesn’t like pockets, right?!

Because Maya Me's designs are so simple and minimalist, it makes for a wonderful canvas for you and your child's creativity. Whether it's layering with crazy patterns and bold colours, wearing all one hundred of your necklaces, a pair of wings or a cape, the possibilities are endless!

So, welcome to my fun shop - I hope you enjoy browsing! I’d love to help you with your requests, so just shoot me a message!

Note: When you decide to purchase an item from our store, you can be assured that it will be handmade with lots of love, out of my workroom in my Sydney apartment, with my little one playing close by.

Thank you and happy shopping!

Returns and exchanges
All of our clothing is handmade to order and customised, so we do not accept exchanges or refunds.

However, if the product is faulty or has been damaged, please notify us within 5 DAYS of receiving your item and we will happily refund the cost of goods and shipping.
Payment
METHODS: We accept payment via Paypal and Direct Checkout.

You can also pay by credit/debit card through PayPal without signing up for a PayPal account. Choose the Paypal option at the checkout, submit your order and click the "Pay Now" button. Then scroll down and you will see the option to pay by credit or debit card, without having to sign up for a Paypal account.

All orders will be processed once payment has been cleared.

PLACING ON HOLD: Since we buy our fabric in smaller quantities, we cannot place items on hold, if payments have not gone through.

PAYMENT ISSUES: If you have any issues with the payment process, please don’t hesitate to contact me via an Etsy convo so that we can sort it out. In the event of non-payment, we will contact you to see if you are still interested in purchasing the item. If the payment cannot be finalized, your order will be cancelled and we will notify you.
Shipping
METHODS: We ship worldwide, using Australia Post. My default is set to standard shipping by airmail, without tracking. Please contact me if you would like to request a quote for express shipping or to purchase insurance.

REFUNDS: Shipping charges will not be refunded on a change of mind. However, if the product is lost or damaged, we will cover all costs.

SHIPPING ADDRESS: We ship to your Etsy shipping address as the default. If you would like your package to be sent to a different address, please include a note in your order (or send us an Etsy convo). It is the customer's responsibility to ensure they have given us the correct address which can accept parcels.

TIME: Standard shipping can take between 7-21 business days, depending on the location.

TAXES/CUSTOMS DUTY: When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes and customs duties, imposed by the destination country. Buyers are responsible for paying any additional costs. If you are concerned about your country's customs laws, please investigate before purchase. This may also delay your order, which is out of my control.

PACKAGING: We care about presentation! The best part about online shopping is opening up your parcels, so every item is beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a ribbon (it will be like opening a present to yourself!). Gift wrapping is available at no extra charge – please include a note in your order. All wrapped packages are sent in a weather-proof satchel.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS: We love custom orders! All custom orders will need to be paid in full before we begin working on them, and can take up to 4 weeks to process, depending on the individual requirements.
