The democratic nature of the social-media-age has greatly disrupted traditional retail models by spawning a new generation of direct-to consumer brands. Eliminating costs associated with brick-and-mortar and whole-sale models, these young brands offer exceptional quality at drastically reduced prices. NY-based Maumero is one example.
Siblings Sam and Susan applied their combined three-plus-decades of whole-sale experience in the shoe business to Maumero. Launched only a year ago, the brand seeks to offer well-made products (all leather, padded soles, original designs) while doing good: The brand donates ten percent of all proceeds to participating charitable organizations. For the shoe-lovers in DC, this weekend is your chance to experience the offerings first-hand at Maumero's first Pop-Up in DC. Details below:
