It’s not hard to see Mawi jewellery’s influence in fashion journals and on the necks, wrists, and ears of celebrities and the street style savvy all throughout the world. But, as an American, I was astounded that I had no idea where to actually find a great piece of Mawi jewellery Stateside.
In an effort to remedy this situation for myself and anyone looking for their Mawi fix across the pond, I was recently given the chance to connect with some of Mawi’s stockists that operate out of the United States. We’ve also compiled a list of stores that currently stock Mawi the world over on our website.
The above photos were taken in San Francisco, California inside a wonderful shop called Betty Lin, named after the owner herself. Betty Lin is an eclectic shop featuring a diverse collection of beautiful designer clothing, handbags, and jewellery in the realm of Rick Owens, Helmut Lang, and Thakoon. The shop also prides itself on being host to several local fashion brands.
You can definitely sense hints of Asian influences around the store. In fact, the rich cultural diversity is one of the reasons Betty says she loves the Bay Area and decided to take up shop there. If you’ll be in the San Francisco area and would like to stop by, find Betty Lin at:
340 Presidio Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94115 Tel. (415) 345-8688
Another Bay Area boutique that loves having a few key Mawi pieces on sale is Eden and Eden. This shop has a smart edit of almost exclusively British brands and is run by an equally British brother/sister duo. The two also carry a fine collection of clothing, designed and composed of vintage fabrics.
Here I was thrilled to see another British jewellery brand rubbing elbows with Mawi so far from London (above)! The offbeat brand Tatty Devine of Brick Lane in London was largely featured nestled next to a Mawi piece in displays littering the store. I also spotted my new favorite indie British handbag brand, Mimi.
Eden and Eden’s motto is ‘beauty, quality, and a little bit quirky’ which they fulfill to a T. The store is bursting with breathtaking designer vintage and bits of a British punk’s edge. Shop online or visit Eden and Eden:
560 Jackson Street, San Francisco, CA 94133
