THE WOMEN BEHIND MAU
We are three friends with over 20 years of friendship who left South Auckland, New Zealand for Melbourne, Australia in search of a new life. However, we discovered the very thing we wanted to distance ourselves from, is the very thing we missed the most - OUR CULTURE.
As children, we were surrounded by family, spending most of our days in church, dancing in cultural events, and fulfilling our duties as Pacific Island girls. Fast forward to 2020, we have found ourselves in search of a group that teaches the very thing we were once exposed to - OUR STORY.
Today we take a leap of faith and actively pursue our passion for keeping our culture alive, through traditional and contemporary clothing.
MAU - Our Culture, Your Story is our way of giving back to our people of the Pacific by connecting generations to their families, their heritage, and their homes.
We believe our MAU products are traditional keepsakes that have been specifically prepared for you and your family to stay connected to your past, present, and future.
