Hello! I'm Maite Bradford, creator of MAITETXU, a Handmade Woman’s Clothing and Accessories line. I personally design, sketch, construct and develop every piece of my collections. After a few years working on custom made pieces for clients, I decided in 2021 to focus on ready to wear pieces launching the online shop website to pursue the Market opportunities.
Currently a Houstonian, I worked many years in the Oil and Gas Industry as a Project Engineer and decided to change careers after almost 20 years to a more personal creative venture. I jumped back into school, enrolling in HCC, to become a Fashion Designer. After finishing my studies, Maitetxu was born and it has been a fulfilling journey.
Every piece made has an inspirational tag attached to it, explaining what motivated the design. The connection the customer has with this process is crucial to me, Since I don’t have production lines, every piece is geared to that one of a kind customer.
Included in our ready to wear pieces, we carry a repurposed collection that entails Army surplus, vintage Levi's Jackets, caps, and straw type handbags redesigned into brand new pieces.
Construction is done only with high end fabrics, very limited inventory, or under orders placed. The focus is to be environmentally conscious with no material waste, making one of a kind pieces for our unique special clients.
