What makes Maven Made special?
The entire Maven Made line is created with nontoxic, certified vegan and organic ingredients. Each product is mindfully made - that means I don't make products when I'm stressed, pissed off, tired or feeling funky. I take this seriously. Creating sustainable, conscious, quality products by hand (with no industrial machinery) is what makes the line special.
Do you have a storefront?
At this time we don't have a storefront. You can find our goods online or at one of our stockists. Find a list of them here.
You can also find us popping up at markets, workshops and events throughout the year. Find upcoming events here.
A retail/studio space is certainly in the plans, but right now I have a lovely studio in my home in the north side of Richmond.
Can I pick up my order locally?
I don't offer my home studio as a pick-up site. However I offer local shipping or you are welcome to shop in person at a upcoming pop-up event.
Do you accept returns, exchanges and refunds?
Absolutely. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. Please email MavenMadeRVA@gmail.com if you have any issues with your order.
How much is shipping?
Shipping rates are based on the weight of your order. Shipping will be calculated during the check out process.
I just placed an order, when will it ship?
Orders are shipped within 1-5 business days after your order has been placed. You will recieve a confirmation email then when it ships with a tracking code.
How can I find wholesale information?
If you feel your retail store, studio or space aligns with the Maven Made brand, please email MavenMadeRVA@gmail.com with the subject line "wholesale inquiry" and we will send you our wholesale information and linesheets.
I want to purchase your products but can't swing the full price.
Since we use high quality and organic ingredients and materials, our retail pricing can be steep. However, I never want Maven Made to be cost prohibitive or for the "wellness elite" (gag). If pricing prevents you from placing an order, let's work together to make something work. Just email me at MavenMadeRVA@gmail.com and we'll go from there.
Do you create custom products?
Right now we're taking a pause on making custom products. If you really want to collaborate, please email us at MavenMadeRVA@gmail.com and we'll evaluare the opportunity.
What can I do with my empty bottles?
Please recycle or repurpose your empty Maven Made bottles (they make pretty little bud vases!). If you're local to Richmond, I also offer monthly Facial Serum refilling events, find the the details here.
Why do you discuss politics, human rights issues, racism, lgbtqia matters, body image and such on your social media? Shouldn't you keep that seperate from your business.
It would be irresponsible for me to not integrate my personal values within the voice of this business. This is one of the joyous (and frightening) parts about being self-employed and an activist, learning how to responsibly balance who I am and what I stand for with it. As a proud queer woman who feels it is incredibly important to amplify and bring awareness to real issues (that many of us have the privilege of sweeping under the rug), there's no option in my eyes. Plus talking about products and natural wellness 24/7 is too one dimensional and exhausting for me.
