We are one of the only few boutique shops specializing in the handcrafted finest silk, needle painting art, and hand-embroidered fashion. We use our fine silk and premium materials (cashmere, wool, natural materials) to create unique, hand-embroidered fashion accessories (scarves, shawls, handbags, purses …), silk bedding, and lifestyle items. At our studio, we design and creates highly detailed, hand embroidered works of art inspired by nature. Our products are unique with high-quality craftsmanship. Custom-made items are available upon request as I am also a Asian woman fashion designer business owner.
Our silk fabric ranges from exquisite Shantung taffeta to elegant jacquard, which is supplied by small weaving and farming households in Vietnam, where silk production has been a tradition for generations. Our suppliers use traditional methods of thread spinning, weaving, and dyeing by hand in small batches with weaving patterns containing centuries-old symbols and characters. Our cashmere materials are well selected and high quality sourced from goats in the Gobi Desert, Inner Mongolia, where only the longest and finest under-fleece — the hair close to the goat’s skin is spun and woven to make good-quality cashmere.

We design and handcraft silk, which is called the queen of fibers, for the bed. We have a wide selection of unique, beautifully crafted bedding selection: bed sheets, blankets pillowcases, duvets, which are luxurious feeling against the skin, elegant, restful beauty that stands the test of time, warm in winter, and cool in summer, for all-year-around comfort.
Additionally, we also provide exceptional hand tailoring. Whether it is a dress, a shirt, sports jackets, or nearly any other garment imaginable, we will take meticulous and precise measurements and ask a customer’s preferences to ensure the desired outcome. We will then hand-tailor and stitch each garment to the customer’s unique physique and preferences.
I created MAISILK in Berkeley, California with a vision of creating beautiful fashion & lifestyle products from silk, cashmere, and natural materials using her weaving, tailoring & hand embroidery skills she has acquired and been cultivating since her childhood.
I grew up in Hanoi, Vietnam, which is the center of silk weaving and sericulture (silkworm production) in Southeast Asia for over a thousand years. Surrounded by beautiful textile, colorful patterns, and the irresistible magic of hand embroidery art, I had developed a strong passion for silk weaving, tailoring, and hand embroidering since a very young age. I learned how to weave and hand embroider from my grandmother and have been using the same tools ever since.
